One Day

26 September 2019 8:00 pm

One Day
Occupy Galway, the Afghan War, Arsenal, and a house in Cork.

Starring Shane Connolly, Oneday is a look at a single day's news and a meditation on the link between power and knowledge. Probing and frenetic, the show examines our unraveling and chaotic relationship with social media, news outlets and the media in general. It is s a timely piece; a wake for our shared understanding of what's happening in the world today. 
 
Three years in the making, a director, an actor, and a drummer attempt to encapsulate a day that was reported in over 3 million articles worldwide. Can a performer, a drummer, and a writer return us to the reality that inspires the news or is this reality lost forever once an event has passed us by?
 
The show received four stars from the Irish Times, describing it as “an absorbing experiment, both arch and obsessional”. It was nominated for best performance and best production at Dublin Fringe where it was first staged in September 2019. The show is co-produced by Walsh’s longtime collaborators, Pan Pan Theatre.
 
Richard Walsh has been making theatre for over a decade. His work is principally interested in oral culture, speech patterns and performance. Walsh uses theatre to explore the complexity of ideology, and the points where ideology begins to crumble as a clearly defined entity.

Crean’s story is a testament of human fortitude against all the elements of the Antarctic, his 36 mile, solitary trek to base camp during the Terra Nova expedition to rescue his comrades Teddy Evans and William Lashly has been described by Antarctic historians as “the finest feat of individual heroism from the entire age of exploration”. He was subsequently awarded the Albert Medal for his bravery.

Defending the Caveman

02 November 2019 8:00 pm

Defending the Caveman

Have you ever wondered why men can't multitask, or why women can’t change a tyre? Wonder no more as the longest running one-person show in Broadway and Las Vegas history, Rob Becker’s “Defending the Caveman” is here to challenge and demystify the differences between the sexes.

Starring the “hysterically funny” stand-up comedian, Tom O’Mahony, the Oliver Award winning show, Defending the Caveman has won the hearts of millions across the globe and now tours Ireland for the first time.

Using psychology, sociology and plain old observational comedy, Defending the Caveman highlights the battle of the sexes – the stereotypical and yet, undisputedly true differences between men and women. Why do men greet each other with insults? Why does it take women so long to get ready? Why can’t men talk about their feelings… And why does it seem that women can’t stop?  Defending the Caveman has become a peacemaker and a celebration of differences between the sexes.
