BLAZING Hyena, one of the Capital’s most prolific young theatre companies, returns to The Wee Red Bar in May with a brand-new play, Living Like A Moth by Sean Dennis Langtree.

Following the life of Mr N Pattie, Living Like A Moth is a dastardly tale of how one man tries to figure out what is real, and what is imagined…

As he is handed from person to person, he must decide who he believes to be the lesser of two evils - for they will determine his fate.

Living Like A Moth is Blazing Hyena’s fourth production (their second this year) and first collaboration, a dark comedy-drama with movement, it follows the success of their sell-out productions of Death is the New Porn, One, Two, Three Yippee and For the Love of Cousins.

Founded by Jack Elliot, Blazing Hyena’s approach to theatre focuses on ‘The Three News’ - new vision, new talent, new writing; the aim being to encourage audiences to take a risk on a different style of writing and to open their minds to a new experience which focuses on provocative issues intended to shock, entertain, stimulate mentally and challenge emotionally long after the curtain has fallen.

Not suitable for those under 18, Living Like A Moth is directed by Jack Elliot and features a five-strong cast comprising James Boal, Kate Foley-Scott, Rosie Milne, Lara Wauchope and Conor Mainwaring.
