The Pigeon Factory | Whiddy Island | Fit Up Theatre Festival 24

Oh!Scare Wilde presents The Pigeon Factory on the West Cork Islands as part of the West Cork Fit Up Theatre Festival 24.

Walden has a pretty good life – happily married to his mannequin wife, he works his pigeon children into the ground so that he may feast upon their eggs for sustenance. Walden is doing everything he’s supposed to do – so why does he feel so empty?

Can his fantasies about his pigeons sustain him? Or must he do the hard thing, and face up to a great hurt done to him in the past?

Described by the Irish Times as “ingenious” and “consistently entertaining”, this new one-man show explores ideas of work, family, and finding purpose in a broken society through the lens of absurdity, pathos, and pigeons.
