GOD BLESS THE CHILD. 11th Sept 8pm. Adm. €16/14.

The short stories of Cork born Frank O’Connor are universally regarded as being classics of their kind. Three of those funniest stories: My Oedipus Complex, The Genius and First Confession have been brought together within a single full-length play.

Meet young Michael, who goes into mortal combat with his father when he returns from the First World War; Larry, a genius who can’t understand why the world can’t keep up with him; and Jackie, who has the grim task of not only making his first confession and communion, but must also deal with his very obstreperous grandmother. 

Richly evocative of Ireland in the early decades of the 20th Century, funny and moving, and featuring memorable performances, God Bless The Child is a must see! 

‘O Connor’s hilarious childhood stories are beautifully adapted for the stage.’**** The Observer.

DANGER MONEY. Sept 17th 8pm. Adm. €14/12

A new play by John McManus starring Seamus O'Rourke

London was only ever meant to be a stepping stone for Teddy 'the Mucker' Tucker, but somehow he stayed there for over thirty years until one day he abruptly abandoned his friends and his job and returned home to North Leitrim. He now finds himself in the bog wondering: Should snakes receive the Free Travel Pass? Are birds the souls of people that have passed on? Why is he's bagging turf when he doesn't even have a fireplace...

THE NUALAS – Glitterbomb Tour. Sept 23rd. 8pm. Adm. €18/16


Described as a cross between Little Mix, The Nolans, and The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Nualas have long been Ireland's top all-girl, shiney-dressed, musical-comedy trio. In fact, this year they are celebrating their 21st. Since their first outing in '95, their unique brand of intricately-arranged, self-penned songs and provocative perspective on everything from spanx to hors d'oeuvres to global apocalypse has wowed audiences from Singapore to Moate.
Their performance will feature spanking new classics, red hot new chat and blistering new shoes. The girls promise to leave you helpless with laughter, delirious with pleasure, and a little disorientated if you can’t remember which door you came in. 

“The Nualas have put comedy and music in the blender and come up with a world class act” Sunday Times.
