Wandering Star Theatre Company presents

Lex Talionis (A Tale of Vengeance & Feathers)

by Liam Heylin

Wandering Star Theatre Company present Lex Talionis (A Tale of Vengeance & Feathers), a new play by Liam Heylin (Love, Peace & Robbery, Hung Juror, Girl from Gdansk, Ding Dong).


‘If I told ya to jump of a buildin’ would ya?’

‘That’s different, we’re jumpin’ off buildin’s all day long!’


Hugh is an older rook with chicks on the way. Mooney is a younger rook whose new friend Max is not what she seems. Dónie is a magpie, and he is bad news. When someone is murdered all hell breaks loose. There will be vengeance. That’s what the weird Latin title is about – the law of retaliation, an eye for an eye.


This is another play from the seriously funny Liam Heylin about savage craic on the streets of Cork City. A bird’s eye view, if you will.


Directed by Katrina Foley

Starring Aisling McCarthy, Sinéad Donnelly, Sinéad McGee and Bláithín MacGabhann
