The Haircut! - At-Home Activities

To accompany our online stream of The Haircut! by Wayne Jordan & Tom Lane, here is a selection of activities connected to the show for children aged 8+ to enjoy at home.

Labhraidh Loingseach has a secret. He wears his hair long and he has it cut only once a year. Once a year on the same night in the same place and in the same style. But never by the same barber.

An old Irish myth remixed and retold in words and music, The Haircut is an Ark commission written by Wayne Jordan, delivered with ineffable charm by bright new talent Thommas Kane Byrne and accompanied by Tom Lane’s vibrant score played by three outstanding musicians.

From Thursday 2 April at 12pm until Wednesday 8 April at midnight, The Haircut! will stream live on The Ark's Facebook page. To find out more about this online event, click here.

Using the worksheet below, children aged 8+ can engage in a variety of activities by artists Anita Mahon and Joanna Parkes which tie into the show's themes, before or after watching the show online, or just on their own!
