Upcoming Events

Drama 'TypeCast' Second Performance Small Roads Festival

Saturday 5th October 5pm
Tickets: €15/€8 children

Typecast

Students have all mysteriously been cast in the “wrong” roles. The auditions for an upcoming production of Cinder White are underway and Ms. Thespis, the drama teacher, is greeted by a small group of students, each with a particular “look” and personality – the “diva,” the “quiet girl,” the “nice girl,” to name a few. To Ms. Thespis, casting this show seems like a no-brainer. However, when she comes down with a case of appendicitis, Ms. Ball, the gym teacher, needs to step in and direct the show, mostly because she feels guilty for balding Ms. Thespis’ pet ferret.
Written by Amanda Murray Curtalo.

Directed by April Ferron.

Starring a large cast of very talented local children.

My Brilliant Divorce

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. It’s a Brilliant Divorce.

Written by Gerladine Aron, an Irish dramatist.

Directed by Meghan Kestler-Tobias.

Mr. Foot

A stuffy, mostly silent businessman sits in his living room, jiggling one foot and patronizing his paranoid, alcoholic, chattering wife, mostly by paying her no mind. The podiatric tic becomes a metaphoric one as well. [Alvin Klein, New York Times]

Directed by Ann Shanahan

Starring Susan Hennessy Small Roads players

Film 'Red Joan' (UK)(110mins) (15A)

Thursday 10th October 8pm
Tickets: €8/ €6 (students)

Red Joan -Starring: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Hughes

The year is 2000. Joan Stanley (Dench) is a retired scientist living in a London suburb when she is arrested for crimes committed many years ago. We flash back to 1938, and young Joan (Sophie Cookson) is a new student at Cambridge, where a chance encounter with Sonya (Tereza Srbova), an alluring fellow student, draws her into a circle of politicized youths supporting the Republicans in Spain and the Soviet dream of a classless society. Joan falls for Sonya's brother Leo (Tom Hughes), a dashing idealist in search of adventure. When the Second World War begins, Joan goes to work for Max (Stephen Campbell Moore) at a top-secret British intelligence project of great interest to Leo. Joan is soon facing several difficult choices: between national loyalties, between belief systems, between men. Somewhere in all this, she will also discover her tremendous potential.

Lindsay Shapero's crisply structured script darts between the elder Joan's interrogations and the younger Joan's life of secrets and jagged alliances. She's never certain whom to trust — and we might not be certain if we can trust her. But Joan's fascinating story validates Jean Renoir's timeless adage: "Everyone has their reasons." Dir: Trevor Nunn

Rose-Lynn Harlan is bursting with raw talent, charisma and cheek. Fresh out of prison and reunited with her son and daughter, all she wants is to get out of Glasgow and make it as a country singer in Nashville. Rose's mother Marion, on the other hand, has had a bellyful of her worthless nonsense. Forced to take strict responsibility, Rose gets a cleaning job, only to find an unlikely champion in the middle-class lady of the house.

The true story of Hollywood's greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, Stan and Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair's triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) - a formidable double act in their own right - the pair's love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.
