CRUEL AND TENDER

Dates: 19 May - 19 May

Tickets: €7

Far away a battle rages and an entire city is turned to dust. Amelia can’t sleep. She waits for news of her husband. He’s a great General and this seems to be a decisive victory. But when the motives for the war start to look disturbingly personal, his wife becomes desperate to hold onto his love.

Martin Crimp’s new play takes Sophocle’s ancient story of marriage and violence The Trachiniae and propels it into a modern world of political hypocrisy and emotional terrorism.

As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?
