A theatre company has had a "novel" idea after reimagining a popular children's book for the stage.
Heartbreak Productions is set to present David Walliam's Awful Auntie at the hall at Sáile, Kinsale on Sunday, May, 15 at 4pm.
The story has been described as a thrilling tale - with owls, ghosts, chases, escapes, motorcycle rides, and tiddlywinks. It follows the adventures of Stella as she evades her menacing aunt to save the family home.
This event is being organised by Words By Water, Kinsale’s Literary Festival.
Gráinne McGuinness, one of the organisers, said the production has proved popular in the past.
The plays have previously been staged outdoors but will take place indoors this year to ensure the weather doesn't spoil the fun.
"This is our third time hosting Heartbreak Productions, and previous audiences - young and old - have loved their performances of some of David Walliams' best-known stories," she said.
Ms McGuinness said they are looking forward to returning to in-person events.
"Like so many others, the team behind Words By Water, Kinsale’s Literary Festival, have sorely missed in-person events," she said.
