Drama: Shirley Valentine with Susan Hennessy - Second of three performances

 

Friday 21st September 8pm
Tickets: €15

Small Roads KENMARE18 theatre festival- Shirley Valentine starring Susan Hennessy

 

 

SHIRLEY is Back!

Having a love affair with yourself is not an easy thing to get around to. Even though the affair is strictly between you and you it seems to concern everyone. Shirley Valentine doesn’t find it easy to break out and be truly loving to herself. She trips over so many obligations and duties along the way. And the habit of putting other people first, even when they don’t need it, keeps getting in her way. Shirley hasn’t a selfish bone in her body. So much so that she has to learn again to think about herself, her own needs, what really matters to her. She has to rediscover the joy of being Shirley Valentine. 

It’s something we must all do; nurture the Shirley Valentine in ourselves. 

And when Shirley comes back this September (three performances only) for the Small Roads, KENMARE18 theatre festival - we men shouldn’t have to sneak into the back row of The Carnegie Arts Centre. There’s a Shirley Valentine in us too.  Bring it out. Flaunt it.

SHIRLEY VALENTINE starring Susan Hennessy is on September 14th, 21st and 22nd 2018 at the Carnegie Arts Centre as part of Small Roads KENMARE18 theatre festival.

Drama/Comedy -My Brilliant Divorce starring Siobhan McAuliffe - Second Performance

 

Saturday 22nd September 8pm
Tickets: €15

My Brilliant Divorce by Geraldine Aron

 

Angela and her husband Matt, otherwise known as Round Head, were happy. Or so Angela thought until Matt ran off with a twenty five year old Argentinian.

Now middle aged Angela is mad, furious, choked up, vengeful, sometimes accepting, broken hearted, relieved or joyfully liberated depending on which minute you catch her. She used to be a window dresser but now she’s just an ex housewife. Will she sign the divorce papers or refuse to sign them, will she try to win him back, will she find another, buy a vibrator and forsake men forever or online date, perhaps contemplate suicide or all of the above in one mad panic? Or will she calm down a while and find where all this leads. Either way, the clue is in the title. It’s a Brilliant Divorce.

Drama - 'The Matchmaker' With Jon Kenny & Mary McEvoy

 

Saturday 20th October - 8pm
Tickets: €20

John B Keane’s, The Matchmaker
With Jon Kenny & Mary McEvoy

 Based on the novella, Letters of a County Matchmaker by JOHN B. KEANE one of Ireland’s most celebrated writers.

The productions stars Mary McEvoy best known for her role as Biddie in the long running RTE series, GLENROE and Irish Actor and comedian, Jon Kenny who was part of the Irish comic duo d’Unbelievables with Pat Shortt. Kenny is also best known outside Ireland for appearing in the Channel 4 sitcom, Father Ted. Together they play a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthy dramatic comedy.

The play follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O'Connor to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn. Keane, an avid observer of people and the cultures that bind and create their view of the world uses The Matchmaker as an exploration of rural loneliness. Aware that generations of people became masters of their own destinies late in life, and only then began to look for companionship and love, once their duties as minder of aging parents were concluded or they had finally inherited, or were the left over brother or sister.

Using his inimitable way with words and his one sense of 'devilment' and wit, Keane delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of this collection of lonely county people and creates a marvelously colorful world, taking us back to a simpler time, when phones were few and far between and the only web was one left behind by spiders.

Directed by Michael Scott.

Small Roads KENMARE18 theatre festival'Same Time, Next Year' with Louise Desmond and Kevin Patrick O’Leary

 This is a story of love and a beautiful friendship between ordinary people in an extraordinary situation. Bernard Slade’s script tells the tale so that it all seems harmless, this yearly affair between Doris and George. The rest of their lives seem better because of it. Despite the lighthearted funny tone and slick comedy this play treats its subject with respect. There is true depth of feeling in this credible and beautifully told tale. Over twenty four years we check in six times on George and Doris’s annual weekend trysts as they grow and change. They become part of each other’s lives and yet must remain in their own. It’s for those who don’t mind feeling warm and fuzzy while laughing a lot.
