A Mummer’s Tale of the Seasons

Gateway Mummers har optrådt i teatre for familier, på rådhuse, festivaler og kunstcentre i USA, Irland, Nordirland og Skotland.

Den tidligste optegnelse af en irsk pantomime (mumming) gruppe er omtalen af en forestilling spillet for kongen af Ulster i 500 år f.kr. – hvilket gør denne type folkedrama til en af de ældste vestlige teaterformer, der stadig eksisterer. Gateway Mummers fortsætter denne ældgamle tradition med komiske, magiske forestillinger, skrevet og instrueret af Sandra Hughes.

I Irland spilles pantomimer oftest ved mid-vinter mellem 26. december (Wren Day) (Wren: Gærdesmutte) og 6. januar (Twelfth Night: Hellig Tre Konger). Tidligere blev der også spillet forestillinger ved andre festlige lejligheder i løbet af året.
