Festival season continues, and is pretty unrelenting, when you think about it! Longitude has only just left Marlay Park, and we’re back with all things funny in the Iveagh Gardens, with the Comedy Festival from the 25th to the 28th of June. KnockanStockan 2013 is in Blessington with some great Irish and international bands.
A few new productions open their doors this week, with the official opening of Streetcar in the Gate, Feck off Crows in the New Theatre and Foreign Bodies in the Project.
Major Barbara starts at the Abbey Theatre on 31st July (next week).

The world of music calms down a little, after the excitement of Longitude and the gigs in the Iveagh Gardens. KnockanStockan 2013 is the festival of the week in the Blessington Lakes. Ennio Morricone (image above) is in IMMA for two nights, Saturday and Sunday.
