Little John Nee

Set in the near future, ‘Nettle Horse’ by award winning writer, performer and musician, Little John Nee is a transformative theatrical odyssey weaving storytelling, song, and satire that invites the audience to step into a parallel universe and witness the magic of their own imaginations in creating the future.

Hundreds of dispossessed families travel west after winning a lottery orchestrated by an unscrupulous local councillor at the behest of Dandelion Ní Houlihan, a mysterious 103-year-old Bostonian benefactor seeking beatification.

All roads lead to Gortnapuca where gangs of carpenters sleep ten to a tent in anticipation of a building frenzy, Mink Devine is selling edible beetles, and a small boy finds solace amidst the chaos by befriending a horse in a circus field.

Little John Nee is an award-winning writer, performer and musician based in the west of Ireland.

He has developed a unique style of musical storytelling theatre, simultaneously hilarious and heart-breaking, that has won him international recognition.

A prolific creator of work for theatre, he was elected to Aosdána in recognition of his contribution to Irish culture.
