This is another week of recovery, from Oxygen and Castle Palooza among others! There’s one day remaining for those wanting to visit the Big House, and there’s also the start of the Kilkenny Arts Festival for those fancying a road trip. Some of the high lights of the Kilkenny Festival are The Fall and the Divine Comedy in the Music Section and Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew by the Globe Theatre and Riverrun with Olwen Fouéré in the Theatre Section.
The workhorse will of course be attending the Dublin Horse Show, checking out the talent!
Embers is Pan Pan’s latest production and again features the work of Samuel Beckett. The amazing picture above is from their facebook page which is the set of the new play at an early stage, which includes a giant Human skull (which will contain the actors), along with 2 tonne of stone and 600 speakers hanging from the roof. A must see? I think so.
Major Barbara starts in the Abbey is on Wednesday , along with A Bed to Die in in the New theatre and Landfall in the Project.
Major Barbara starts at the Abbey Theatre on Wednesday.
