Selvage (a word meaning the self securing first and last line of knitting), is a show about unraveling tightly wound modern anxieties and a boy's triumph over his 'gnaw'. An energetic, imaginative and funny piece of physical theatre, it explores themes of charity, self-help and religion, examining the countless avenues people trudge in an effort to make themselves feel calm when deep down remains a ‘gnaw'.

Selvage is written and performed by James Riordan with live original music by Anna Mullarky, Directed by Lara Campbell, it is supported by the Arts Council, Galway City Council and Galway County Council and will tour to Clifden Station House the following week.

This is new work from Galway based Brú Theatre. Previous work includes Cleite, a mask based piece with Sean Nós which played to sell out audiences in both the Galway Theatre Festival and the Baboró International Arts Festival for Children earlier this year supported by Galway City Museum.

Brú also recently staged The Fisherwives, an outdoor, masked ensemble piece supported by Galway 2020.

This show was part developed through the Druid FUEL program.
