Fourth Wall Laois Theatre Group presents SIVE

Sat 30 March @ 8pm

Birr Theatre & Arts Centre

Info: Fourth Wall Laois Theatre Group’s production of Sive brings a contemporary credibility to J B Keane’s timeless tale of young love, materialism, family life, and women’s place in the world. Though set in the sixties, this carefully casted drama demonstrates that these enduring themes and contrasting emotions are as relevant today. Direction by David Corri is faithful to the tragic-comedy elements of the play and employs the rural background of the talented actors to fashion an authentic and memorable production.

Cost: €15/12

Crowman starring Jon Kenny

Sat 23 March @ 8pm

Birr Theatre & Arts Centre

Info: Set in a sparsely decorated kitchen, this intimate one-man show starring Jon Kenny (D'Unbelievables) feels like a window into the soul of a lonely bachelor, Dan. A crow-hating man who noisily tries to shoo the blighted birds away, Dan measures out his life by the amount of funerals he has to attend every week. Kenny is brilliant in the role, conveying the gamut of emotions. Katie Holly's script is strong, conjuring up a life of quiet desperation. (Review by Collette Sheridan, Irish Examiner, June 2018)

Cost: €21
