'The Wonders of the Wake is a totally unique show that, through laughter, song, keening and haunting Gaelic laments, celebrates the ancient rite of the Irish wake. The hauntingly beautiful Mná Caointe, three keening female singers led by the amazing Niamh Parsons, will bring a tear to your eye and a shiver to your spine and take you on an immersive journey to the best Irish wake you could ever experience.
The Wonders of the Wake is an artistic collaboration between the acclaimed writer of My Father's Wake, BAFTA winner Kevin Toolis and the world-renowned singers and musicians The Henry Girls: Joleen, Karen and Lorna McLaughlin.'
