The Ark is excited to welcome Polar Bear & Penguin, a charming play for young audiences written and performed by John Currivan & Paul Curley.

The tale of an unlikely encounter between a Polar Bear and a Penguin. This is the story of polar opposite characters meeting for the first time, getting to know one another and learning how to survive in a world that is melting beneath their feet…paws…flippers.

Paul Curley (THE DIG and Bake!) and John Currivan (The Bockety World of Henry & Bucket), bring this quirky and relevant play for young audiences to life. Award-winning director Ian Cameron (White) joins the team along with designers Ger Clancy and Sarah Jane Shiels and composer Denis Clohessy.

Polar Bear & Penguin is a tale of our time, infused with humour, friendship and fish.

Polar Bear & Penguin was originally developed by Paul Curley & Draíocht with the support of The Arts Council YPCE Project Award & Meitheal CPS – A Branar Initiative
