“★★★★ – breathtakingly ambitious”
– Guy Wah, Broadway Baby

Bonny Boys are Few is a show by Enormous Yes that uses music, storytelling and film to tell the story of writer Michael John O’Neill, a fictional conquistador, and an immortal eel that eats misery. The show draws on traditions of Irish music, history and mythology and was first developed for The Arches at Arches Live 2013.

Subsequently, Bonny Boys are Few has been performed at The Roundhouse, the Brighton Fringe and the Edinburgh Fringe to consistent critical acclaim.
