It’s a show about motherhood and sacrifice, anxiety and grief, the mistakes you make as a mother and a son. Where do I get my material from? Life and death!

It is about lost love and the sense of belonging and not belonging to a small community. Most of all it is about the humanity and decency found in every rural village and town in Ireland. “Kenny is brilliant in the role.” - The Irish Examiner “Brilliant” - Arena, RTÉ “A masterclass in characterisation and physical acting.”- Munster Express Adm. €16 / €14 (concessions)

Mary Ronayne

Painter Mary Ronayne collects imagery from literary sources, old prints and paintings, photographs, magazines, accruing references from various eras and historical times, cutting and joining divergent histories and narratives - early Irish history and folklore clash with ‘ugly’ mid20th century ceramics, Renaissance imagery positioned alongside reconstructed magazine shots of contemporary domestic interiors hosting families incongruous to the era. Her preferred choice of “gooey” enamel paint creates an illusion of blithe, cartoon-like characters and spaces, a fool’s paradise, seemingly devoid of intended political or social meaning; yet there is a Hogarthian quality to the work, a suggestion that behind the farcical lies satire and allegory. Mary has an MA from NCAD and and lectures in Computer Illustration in Dublin. She has exhibited widely in Ireland (including RHA and RUA annual exhibitions), in N. Ireland and the UK. Adm. Free Official opening on Friday 27 March. Details to follow. All welcome.
