From the coast of  Ireland comes the spellbinding tale of two siblings and a white horse called Tir Na n’Og. Ally and Fin are children of Travelers living with their Pa, when the mysterious, otherworldly horse comes to them from the sea, filling their lives (and tiny flat) with happiness . . . and trouble. Soon police are at the door to take Tir Na n’Og away, but not even the law can keep these children from their magnificent horse. Fearless as cowboys, Ally and Fin escape into the west in this lively, suspenseful drama about love, loss and bravery, where they learn that the greatest journeys in life take us beyond all imagination and into our hearts.

From the playwright that brought you Robin Hood, families will be enchanted by this unique story, rich in Irish folklore, lyrical writing and music.
