Written by Peter Sheridan A new show from acclaimed playwright and director Peter Sheridan based on his memoir, Break A Leg, which tells the story of his life in the theatre, and meanwhile touches on so much more, delving deeply into Sheridan’s life, as well as the wider culture and politics of Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s. Honestly confronting his emerging problems with panic attacks and alcohol, and blending social history with memoir, Sheridan’s story is written in gutsy, fresh prose that captures your attention from the first page.

They were promised everything; a life of financial stability and job security but they now find themselves queuing either at the airport to emigrate or the social welfare office to sign on. They feel they should not have to experience depression, economic or personal, and the availability of over-the-counter medication allows them to numb both. The show has received rave reviews and extensive interest from around Ireland and abroad and was nominated for 2 ABSOLUT Fringe Awards in Dublin 2012.

‘The most ferociously young and brilliant performer I saw...writes with such passion, conviction, sincerity, humour and attention to detail.’ The Scotsman

These dramatisations of six stories by Maeve Binchy from the 1980s capture the energetic essence of her best work - chatty, often hilarious depictions of the antiseptic pretensions of the middle classes, with their womenfolk forever in neurotic distress. Binchy’s is a curious yet recognisable world, where beauty therapists and wedding boutique madames are imperious gorgons terrorising hapless clients, and women have their nerves shredded during expensive dinner parties that inevitably collapse into farce. ‘90 hilarious minutes…as insightful and clever as it is funny.’ Sunday Business Post

Written by Mike Davis and Rob Crouch Join legendary hellraiser Oliver Reed as he knocks back a few drinks and shares his incredible life story. From the boyhood excitement of learning he was a descendant of Peter the Great, through the success of Oliver, boozy adventures with Keith Moon and disastrous chat show appearances - this was a life well-lived. But though Ollie may appear an unstoppable force of nature, this is Malta in 1999, set in a bar (where else!!) during a break from filming Gladiator with Russell Crowe, and time is fast running out for the ‘Wild Thing’. Rob Crouch brings Reed to vivid life in this swaggering, brilliant evening of entertainment. ‘Captures not just the history of the man but more importantly, his very spirit. It’s factual, fun and superbly entertaining - an insight into Oliver Reed.’

What Would Ma Say

Drama

June Mon 10th - Sat 15th Main Auditorium 8pm €18 & €15 concession €10 opening night (10th)

Written by Kathleen Doyle In this hilarious play based on the best-seller of the same name, Kathleen Doyle introduces us to her remarkable family and their exploits growing up in Dublin in the 1950s and 1960s. Kathleen describes Ma as an ordinary woman with very little education behind her. But maybe not so ordinary in the way she learned to survive and handle life. She was the backbone, the one who kept them together as a family, just about keeping their heads above water. But through all the poverty, Kathleen and her brothers and sisters had a laugh turning their kitchen into a swimming pool on a hot summers day, or trying to hide a stolen pig in the bath. What Would Ma Say? is a nostalgic and poignant reminder of a Dublin that’s long gone. Contains some strong language.

A documentary play about the bank guarantee. Written by Colin Murphy On the night of September 29, 2008, the Taoiseach and Minister for Finance decided to guarantee Ireland’s banks - to the tune of €440 billion.

Written by journalist and documentary-maker Colin Murphy, and based on official documents and off-the-record interviews, Guaranteed! reconstructs Ireland’s banking boom and bust - as it was seen from inside the corridors of power. An ensemble of actors plays a myriad of ministers, bankers and bureaucrats as they wrestle with the unfolding crisis. You will come away informed, enraged and perhaps a little heartbroken.
