From Under the Bed

presented by Big Guerilla Productions

Cast: Seamus O’Rourke & Arthur Riordan
Directed by Bairbre Ni Chaoimh

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…

Mother (and me)

presented by Geva Theatre/Emotional Management


Written and performed by Melinda Buckley
Suitable for age 13+
Duration 75 mins

Mother (and me) is a heartfelt and hilarious story about the complex relationships between mothers and daughters.

Melinda, an ex-Broadway dancer is finally married…at 45! She’s more than ready to settle into life with her new Wall St. husband when a phone call from her brother sounds the alarm, ‘something is up with Mom.’ Ilene or ‘Attila the Hun-garian,’ as Melinda calls her has always been a handful but now, she’s off the charts-- and the role reversal ride no child wants to get on, is about to begin! Direct from New York City, this award winning show begs the question: How do you parent an over the top parent?

A funny and touching one woman show about stepping up and finding your own light.

No Smoke Without Fire

There’s sixty thousand euro post office robbery money up for grabs and scandal knows no bounds, as six women gossip intermittently in the smoking area of a Dublin pub, leaving a trail of personal information behind them. As the innocent along with the guilty suffer the stings of innuendo and the lashes of sharp tongues, a hilarious tale of crime and its consequences unfolds. A comic drama by Paddy Murray, full of sharp Dublin wit, this story of Larry, the cash, the camper van and the deceased husband are all performed with ease by acclaimed actress, Mary Murray (Love/Hate).

If ever there was an actor you wanted to see more of, it’s Mary Murray. On stage she has always had a magnetic focus, a presence somewhere between no-nonsense control and a shiver of vulnerability... An actor of tremendous physical versatility and wit.’ - Irish Times
