Opening Night - Widow's Paradise performed by The Carnegie Players

 

Friday 6th March. Gala Opening 7.30pm. Curtain Up. 8pm
Tickets:€15/€12 (students)

'Widow's Paradise' by Sam Cree. Directed by Anne-Marie Cleary.

Widow's Paradise is a 3 Act comedy set in the 1960's. The action of the play takes place in a "luxury" caravan with 5 ladies embarking on a "strictly women only" holiday, set beautifully in the Kerry countryside

A subsequent case of "mistaken caravan identity" sees the "Widows Paradise" thrown into disarray with the arrival of no nonsense alpha-male Harry, his dim-witted side-kick Ernie and Harry's handsome young son Alan. What was supposed to be a scene of peace and tranquility turns into a riotous clash of the sexes, each with their own story to tell! 

Not to be missed!

An Evening with Mary McEvoy

Friday 13th March 8pm
Tickets: €20

'A Night with Mary McEvoy' presented by Noggin Theatre Company.

Please note that this show will only go ahead with a minimum of 50 bookings. If you are interested in attending please book your tickets early. Buy online or call the box office. Credit cards accepted.

Noggin Theatre Company (Violet Gibson:The Woman Who Shot Mussolini, Liv) is delighted to return by popular demand with A Night with Mary McEvoy including Fruitcake (55mins) written and directed by Alice Barry and an interval followed by fun and frolics with Alice and Mary.

Mary McEvoy (Biddy in Glenroe), one of Irelands best-loved actors will perform the hugely successful Fruitcake after which there will be an interval. ‘Here’s some I made earlier’ fruitcake will be provided. Mary will then return for a discussion with Alice Barry (Writer and Director). They will review Mary’s acting career, books, buddhism, depression and recent weight loss and the floor will be open for any questions from the audience. Mary will be available to sign copies of her books and meet and greet any interested parties.
Warning; both parties prone to outbursts of song and poetry.

Fruitcake (First Half)

Mary McEvoy captivates her audience in this delightful, moving one woman show. Under the guise of  a cookery demonstration where Della Dolan shows us how to make ‘the perfect Fruitcake’ she divests provoking memories to give a fascinating account of her life on an Irish farm. She divulges a chequered past involving hardship, murder and intrigue but most of all great sacrifice, realisation and love. Funny and poignant with accessible visuals this play will make you laugh and cry and remind you why life is ultimately rewarding and exciting for all its ups and downs.

Discussion (Second Half)

 Mary and Alice regale the audience with anecdotes and information, fun and frolics. A massive success at Midleton Arts Festival.

‘Alice Barry’s carefully written play has a further reaching ambition. The skill of the writing is that there is never a sense of lurching gear changes being made to encompass the various plot developments.It is an unexpectedly moving piece of work.’

Liam Heylin, Evening Echo.
