Dates: 12 May - 12 May

Tickets: €15

As part of Rough Magic’s 20th anniversary programme Rough Magic will present two plays developed during the hugely successful SEEDS project.

“And she wasn’t a very loving mother. I mean she never made rice krispie buns – do you know what I mean?”

Eddie and his sons work nights. Bren (the love child) surfs the net alone. Andy (planned) can’t confirm the whereabouts of his girlfriend and son. Kev (the mistake) isn’t throwing his money around like the IT whizzkid they take him for. A duty visit to their mother requires them to act like model siblings; but confusion around her illness, which hospital she is in, and references to her mysterious good news become the fuel for this dark comedy of a disintegrating family.

The two plays will be presented in a repertory season, with each play running three evenings each week, and both performed on Saturdays, giving audiences an opportunity to purchase a special ticket to see both plays in one day.

Cast: Joe Hanley, Aidan Kelly, Vincent McCabe and Barry Ward.

Directed by Lynne Parker

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,…
