Fíbín Teo Theatre Group Presents: Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore It is a joy to open Clifden Arts Festival with theatre, especially for our youngest audience, promoting the festival’s belief in the power of the arts in education. Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore are at the seaside. Things happen – Hartleby spends a lot of time being bossy and trying to find the perfect spot. Oooglemore does some crazy dancing, shows off a bit, hits the shuttlecock too hard, loses it, spoils the game. Hartleby goes off in a huff. Jeramee makes it all OK.
