Where We Live

Performance

HOTHOUSE

Dates: 18 Mar - 21 Mar

Show Time: 8.30pm (6.30pm preview;1pm matinée)

Tickets: €16

We’re born dying. Hooray? This was true before climate breakdown, but now our grandchildren won’t even remember us fondly. (Assuming we have any.)

This play is about what we do instead of facing that spooky thought: Ruth in 1969 refuses to eat sandwiches with lettuce in them. Ali in 2019 goes on a cruise to say goodbye to the ice. A parent a hundred years in the future tells their child it gets better, even though we’re pretty sure they’re lying.

With HOTHOUSE, MALAPROP once again make big ideas urgently human. And funny! This show is not just One More Thing to Feel Scared and Sad About. Promise. Climate breakdown is so huge that feeling bad is too small a feeling to really do it justice. So why not laugh about death? Why not do a drag cabaret about bees going extinct? Why not play some banging tunes while the ship sinks?

Come along. Laugh. (Loudly.) Panic. (Controlledly.) Think about needing to change (desperately), but not knowing how. Think about cruise ships, horny songbirds, parents, love, legacy, horny rabbits, Minnie Riperton, and whether things can ever get better.

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. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
