Barnstorm Theatre Company kick off their latest production, Monday’s Child, today at The Barn in Kilkenny.

Monday’s Child tells a simple poetic story of the unique bond between an old woman and a little girl. Together in a dream-like garden, they sing and dance and dress up as they joyously explore a treasure trove of memories.

This sensitive, imaginative yet funny story explores how we make and store memories as we grow up and discover the world; how these shape who we are, and how they help us to meet the challenges of growing old.

Written by award-winning writer Brendan Murray, Monday’s Child has been made especially for children aged 4+ years, their families and teachers.

We caught up with the two actors involved, Noelle Brown and Iseult Casey, for a chat about the show, the rehearsal process, their approach to childrens theatre and much more besides. Take a listen below.
