An Ireland of difference has made a different Ireland. In a small corner of that new country, an unlikely and eclectic group of new arrivals and not-so-new odd balls come together. They are people with history in their heads, desire in their hearts, and time on their hands. Ireland's first multi-ethnic hurling team is formed for no greater reason than the need to find something to do.

HURL charts the human, heroic and hilarious journey as the team overcomes impossible barriers while contesting the Hurling Club Championships. Played by a company of eight actors on an open pitch, it brings to the stage the excitement and passion of the world's greatest game.

Barabbas... the company celebrates ten years as one of Ireland's most innovative and popular theatre companies. In that time, they have toured throughout the world to great acclaim.

"A winning performance"
