Historically, difficult women have been outlawed and called witches. That’s been the fate of ordinary women with extraordinary voices – women like singer/songwriter Áine Tyrrell and comedian Mandy Nolan.
Áine and Mandy stir the political pot, and along the way they spin a yarn, tell a joke and have a damn good time. They invite like-minded women and allies to join them. This isn’t just a show, this is the Country Witches Association.
Country Witches Association is a call to action. Together, Áine and Mandy bring their craft to the stage so that dangerous dialogues and unexpected collaboration can come to the boil. It’s funny, it’s deep, it’s profound, it’s a celebration, it’s an honouring, it’s outrageous, it’s unexpected, it’s inclusive.
This unique collab asks us to find the witch within. Áine says ‘if you’re not doing something that you would have been burnt for 400 years ago then you’re not trying hard enough.’
Mandy says: ‘As performers we get a bit tired of sticking to the rules, so the idea of the Country Witches is to unleash our more deviant selves. This is a creative space to navigate topics at a deeper level.’
It’s time to join the Country Witches!
