Walking Man/An Fear Siúil

By Jody O’Neill · Age: 8+

Walking Man/An Fear Siúil tells the tale of a man who has spent his whole life in pursuit of success. He has always rushed headlong through life, determined to follow in his father’s footsteps to the best job on the top floor of the tallest building in the whole city. And when he has done all that, with Walking Woman and little Walking Baby at his side, something doesn’t feel quite right…

So, Walking Man must go on an entirely new journey, which takes him far from home.

Walking Man/An Fear Siúil is a charming allegory, which will captivate its audience. With the help of an original live music score, the actor brings us into the miniature world of the Walking Man, a tiny wooden figure.

Walking Man is designed for 1st, 2nd & 3rd classes and performs to one class at a time (up to a maximum of 35 students) and is available in both English and Irish language versions. The accompanying Teacher Resource Book (available online) links carefully with the curriculum across a range of subject areas.
