Misery Hill: The Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish - Part One

Dates: 20 Sep - 23 Sep

Show Time: 9pm

Tickets: €18 - €20

“Don’t forget to read between the lines, chew what I say and try not to swallow.”

One of Ireland’s most enigmatic performers steps into theatre to bring his stranger than- fiction life story to the playhouse.

Meet Jerry Fish, the descendant of pirates that once swung from the gallows on Misery Hill. Born-hard to a mermaiden mother, swaddled in a baggywrinkle by the Liffey and raised on the banks of the Thames. Chockablock full of vaudevillian fun and games, voyage to the artist’s ancestral self with never-before-told stories, half-truths, half-fictions and brand new songs.

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?

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray.
