‘Arán & Im’ is sold out. Unfortunately there are no tickets available at the door.


Manchán Magan is an Irish writer, performer, playwright, traveler and documentary maker. Join us in the Erin Room at the Irish American Heritage Center for a special, intimate performance of his latest work.

Arán & Im is a theatrical performance in which Manchán Magan bakes sourdough bread while offering insights into the wonders of the Irish language–exploring potent words of landscape, terms of intuition and insight, and the many phrases that bring to life the mysterious glory of our natural world. The show is a celebration of language, land and local Irish food, with freshly-baked traditional sourdough bread for the audience to slice and spread with butter they churn themselves from Irish cream.

Just ten tables of eight viewer/participants will be attending Arán & Im, April 27th at 8:00pm. Enjoy Arán & Im (Bread & Butter) and wine at your table. The Erin Room bar will be open at 7:00pm.
