THE PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLD

Dates: 16 Dec - 16 Dec

Tickets: €20

In Chinese and with an all Chinese cast The Playboy of the Western World opened in China’s premier venue, The Beijing Oriental Pioneer Theatre, in March 2006.

This exciting production is an innovative and unique event drawing on the counterpoints of an Irish story and contemporary urban Chinese culture. This version of Playboy has been transposed to a modern setting of a hairdresser’s and foot massage parlour in the old part of Beijing. The normal business of hairdressing takes place out front but there are other less mundane activities happening elsewhere on the premises.

Performed in Mandarin with English surtitles.

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,…
