Kind Words Spoken

"Every journey to the theatre commences in hope, (too often dashed) here it is totally justified" - Irish Theatre Magazine on FOLLOW 2011 "Outstanding in it's field" - The Irish Times on FARM 2012

WillFredd Theatre presents

Theatre

CARE

Dates: 20 Feb - 01 Mar

Show Time: 8.15pm

Tickets: €15 - €12 (All tickets 19 February just €12!)

On a hilltop in Dublin, staff are working around the clock. They make tea. They give baths. They paint nails. They refill syringe drivers. They throw clay at walls with children. Some pray. Some don’t. Everyone they care for is dying.

WillFredd Theatre have teamed up with a number of Irish Hospice staff to bring you CARE, a show which questions what Hospice is. Fusing movement, live music and text, every word, sound and image in CARE is drawn from daily Hospice life.

From the company that brought you the critically-acclaimed FARM and FOLLOW comes a new show about the people who help you live until you die.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him.
