Spirit of the Fringe winners THEATREclub are back with a play that just might be about you and EVERYONE you know.

The Family is a play about your family.

Watch them fight, love and try to make dinner.

They will cry and stare as funds gets thinner.

BUT The Family love each other,

Cos after all, you can choose your friends….

Since the foundation of the State, the family was the bedrock of Irish society. At a time when the very fabric of the nation is being called into question, THEATREclub are making a play that explodes the idea of the contemporary Irish family, tearing up “An Teaghlaigh” to figure out where we go to from here.

A series of post show talks and discussions will accompany The Family. More information on the schedule of events and speakers here.

THEATREclub are part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.

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,…
