Slattery’s Sago Saga is the tale of Tim Hartigan, whose quiet life as the dogsbody of Poguemahone Hall is shattered by the arrival of a Scotch woman with an evil plan.  Confusion awaits in the shape of a politically-correct Leprechaun, a beautiful typist and a tycoon T.D. bent on bankrupting the country...

One part carnival, one part surreal satire, this comic masterpiece - nominated for three awards at the 2010 Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards - is catapulted with surrealist energy into modern-day Ireland. An unforgettable theatrical adventure from Ireland’s internationally renowned site-specific company The Performance Corporation.
