TROUBLED WATERS

Dates: 11 Jun - 11 Jun

Tickets: €8

Rebellion and rites of passage in the South Seas link two vivid tales of survival from two very different historical perspectives.

First, 1789. When a 14-year-old boy escapes a prison term in exchange for service at sea, serendipity soon makes way for a case of wrong place, wrong time. The ship: HMS Bounty. The captain: William Bligh. The destination: Tahiti. Mutiny on the Bounty is the latest gripping novel from John Boyne, award-winning author of the international bestseller The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

Two centuries later. A coming-of-age literary classic lies at the heart of Lloyd Jones’ Booker-shortlisted Mr Pip. As civil war ravages the tropical island of Bougainville, the pop-eyed recluse Mr Watts takes over the village school and tutors his young charges with Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations – his only text. But on an island at war, the power of fiction has dangerous consequences.

Navigate the troubled waters of literary fiction with John Boyne and Lloyd Jones.

‘Mr Pip is a poignant and impressive work which can take its place alongside the classical novels of adolescence.’

‘Raw literary talent at its best.’

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,…
