The Year of the Hiker

….where did he go – why did he leave – why is he home…..

Thu 18th January 2024 - Sat 20th January 202420:00 - 21:15


Youghal Little Theatre
presents  “The Year of the Hiker”,  one of John B. Keane’s most poignant plays.   It tells the story of the Hiker Lacey who, 20 years ago, left his wife children to take to the roads.  Now, he returns and unknowingly to him, it is on the evening of his daughter’s wedding.  The reception that he receives may not be what he was expecting.

This is a drama of love, bitterness, jealousy, selfishness, pride and reconciliation, culminating in the real reason why the Hiker took to the roads and the reason for his return.

The Year of the Hiker is directed by Jim Morey  and has a cast of hugely talented local actors.
Admission €15.00.
