Post bank holiday blues setting in?
If you’re seeking something to look forward to this week, Cork Arts Theatre has just the thing.
Accessible and affordable, their Summer Lunchtime Supper Theatre programme has four more brilliant shows on offer through August, with performances running lunchtime Wednesday to Friday and an evening performance on Friday and Saturday.
First up, The Humours of Bandon by Margaret McAuliffe, runs from August 3rd to 6th, a multi-award-winning play directed by Stephanie Preissner (Creator of RTE’s Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope) and performed by the writer.
A coming-of-age drama set in the world of competitive Irish dancing, The Humours of Bandon is “full of heart, humour, and wisdom” and is sublimely performed by McAuliffe.
The following week the venue presents Indigestion, written and performed by Seamus O’Rourke. Revolving around the life story of a Cavan man shipped off to London at 17, Indigestion has been selling out venues across the country, most recently at the Fit Up in West Cork. This is the first chance to catch this thoroughly engaging performance on stage in Cork City.
In the third week of August, The Story written and performed by Cork theatremaker, Timmy O’Mahony, introduces audiences to the character of Tom Walsh, avid Sherlock Holmes fan living on Cork City’s Northside. Normally preferring to hide away from the world, Tom is forced to venture out in search of the truth when his best friend George goes missing.
The Lunchtime Supper Theatre was first introduced at Cork Arts Theatre 10 years ago and in keeping with the venue’s ethos of making theatre accessible and affordable, all the performances in the programme can be seen for just €10.
Tickets that include lunch are just €13 and supper €22.50 or €40 for two. Book your seat at corkartstheatre.com or by calling 021 450 5624.
