Ireland's infamous legend comes alive!
A destined girl is born and the King wants her to himself, locked away, controlled, his rightful claim. But the prophecy comes with a price - the child will bring great suffering - and rebellion soon ignites. Destiny? Fate? She’s not going down without a fight.
Performed outdoors in the heart of South Brisbane and inspired by Irish legend Deirdre of the Sorrows, Destiny Doomed braves the storm with an original folk-pop score and a story that puts the dam(n) in ‘damsel in distress’.
