'The Quiet Land' - Winner - Best One Act Play- Amateur Drama All- Ireland 2017 

 

'The Quiet Land' by Malachy McKenna is a celebration of humour, resilience and endearing innocence of an exiled generation as it struggles to survive in the isolated rural Ireland of today. A conversation between two elderly farmers on a remote hillside, gentlemen of heart, humour and hardness. It is McKenna's heartfelt tribute to a rare breed of forgotten men who live a long way in off the road.

Multi award winning traditional singer Elle Marie hails from Freemount, North Cork. Since the release of her first album in 2012, she has graced stages all over Ireland and abroad.

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

 

Friday 14th September
Tickets: €12 until August 30th, thereafter all 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 written by Willie Russell  starring Susan Hennessy is on September 14th, 21st and 22nd 2018 at the Carnegie Arts Centre as part of Small Roads KENMARE18 theatre festival.

Saturday 15th Sept 8pm
Tickets: €12

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.

Drama -Comedy- 'My Brilliant Divorce' starring Siobhan McAuliffe

 

Sunday 16th September 8pm
Tickets: €12 until August 30th and €15 thereafter

Small Roads KENMARE18 theatre festival - My Brilliant Divorce by Geralding 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.
