FROM UNDER THE BED

20 April 2018 8:00 pm

FROM UNDER THE BED
A BIG GUERRILLA PRODUCTION

Tickets €16/14

Seamus O’Rourke once again brings us a story full of heartache and humour, as a pair of aging, rural, bachelor brothers arrive at a point in their lives, where decisions have to be made about certain things… well the buying of a television for one… and one subject leads to another and the next thing, they’re bringing up all kinds of ‘auld shite’ that could have been left under the bed along with everything else.
Eugene McPartland is woken by his brother Pat in the middle of the night in 1979. Not only does Pat wake him, but he has his good suit on him too… and a light on in the bedroom and another on the landing… and as well as burning up the electric, he now wants to talk…

th album in April 2018, titled `Land Of Escape’. Like his previous 2 albums it was recorded & produced by Ben Reel in his home studio in South Armagh.

THE 6 MARYS

27 April 2018 8:00 pm

THE 6 MARYS
THE SIX MARYS
Tickets €16

The Six Marys’, written and narrated by Jean Farrell, with supporting actress/singer Catherine Gallagher is the hilarious but realistic story of the realities of life for girls and women from the 1950s to the current day as ‘read’ from diaries and interspersed with songs and soundtracks from the different eras.

This one-woman-show is a comical yet poignant look at life, from childhood in the1950s, to the present day. It draws very much on the influence of religion as taught by the nuns--preparing young Irish Catholic schoolgirls to imitate the virtues of the Virgin Mary. They were to be meek, humble and pure. How well did this help them cope with the huge social changes of the following decades? Were the fanciful dreams of youth fulfilled?

This journey of self-discovery is interspersed with well-known hit songs from the various eras, sung by Catherine Gallagher. 
The six Marys are fun-loving girlfriends, who grow into practical, everyday housewives. The light-hearted atmosphere helps us concentrate on their journeys through the decades-- delivering all kinds of sharp and comical observations. Jean has plenty to say about the teenage pursuit of Mr Wonderful—followed by the reality of married life, teenage children and growing waistlines. 

And, when our children grow up eventually and leave home, what lies ahead then—a big void or peace at last?

“Really really funny—and SO true to life.”

“Haven’t laughed so much in years—LOVED it”

“I had forgotten all those things—WONDERFUL show.”

SHOUT! The 60s Mod Musical

19 May 2018 8:00 pm

SHOUT! The 60s Mod Musical

Shout! The 60s Mod Musical



Tickets €20/18

PRESENTED BY VERDANT & DO OR DIE PRODUCTIONS 

The musical follows five young female subscribers to a fictional magazine called Shout!, “the magazine for the modern woman”, as they come of age during the liberating 1960s that made England swing. From cover to cover, Shout! unfolds like a musical magazine and travels in time through the decade, chronicling the dawn of liberation of women. Just as Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Cilla Black and Lulu were independent women with major careers, English (and indeed Irish!) women were redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about women. Shout! and its all-female cast reflect that change through the unforgettable music of the era.

Shout! contains show stopping new arrangements of classic pop anthems of the decade, including, “Downtown”, “Son of a Preacher Man”, “Goldfinger”, “I Only Wanna Be With You”, “To Sir With Love” and of course, “Shout!”.
