In an era of increasing isolationism and restrictions on individual and artistic liberty, Earagail Arts Festival in partnership with An Anchor Ensemble has commissioned eight artists, writers and broadcasters from Ireland and the UK to perform short readings examining the theme of migration and freedom of movement in each of the four bird hides along the path of the long gone tracks of the Derry to Letterkenny railway line. Each of the hides will host two readings from artists from Ireland and the UK examining the theme of migration and freedom of movement.

Legendary Ed Asner, winner of seven Emmy Awards and known to generations of fans as Lou Grant in the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Santa in Elf and as the voice of Carl in Pixar and Disney’s Up, performs at An Grianán Theatre for the very first time in ‘A Man & His Prostate’. “It’s got wonderful humor and it’s got truth in it,” Asner says of the play written by Ed Weinberger, who, like Asner, has earned numerous Emmy Awards for his television work.
