THE BRAND NEW ALBUM ‘I OWN YOU’ RELEASED OCTOBER 14th

The album ‘I Own You’ features some of Mick’s finest material to date and is preceded by the first single, the title track ‘I Own You’, which is out now.

Following the release of his #1 album ‘By The Rule’ in 2014, Mick took a short break and began writing again in 2015. Basing himself between the counties of Cork & Clare, Mick was moved & motivated by current events around the world, specifically one tragic event in April 2015 that inspired the title track.

Speaking very directly about the single, Mick states; "The song I Own You" is based on the idea of the "poor man" breaking into the "rich man's" house. It was inspired by wealth inequality in capitalist societies. It was also informed by the Baltimore riots, after the killing of Freddie Gray by police. I hoped the song would portray the anger felt by disenfranchised, powerless people. The video is intended to send the message that the greed of the super-rich must at some stage be reckoned with". 

This album is a step away from previous releases, something Mick differentiates between his own albums. ‘50% of this album is more socially aware, containing social commentary stuff, and is ultimately less self-involved than my previous releases. It may also sound slightly different; I was listening to a lot of Kendrick Lamar, and for a long time it was just Christian [producer] and I in the studio – him on drums and me warbling – so the beat became more important than any guitar or piano parts, more hip-hop based, the reason it sounds a little bit more modern’

THE SUCCESSFUL TD

THE SUCCESSFUL TD

By John B Keane

With Jon Kenny & Mary McEvoy

Adm €21/19

"There’s no doubt that this world is full of gangsters and crooks, the only thing to do is to forge between honesty and crookedness and so the best you can. God almighty,   I often laugh to myself when I think of the turns I did for people. People mind you,  that wouldn’t given me a vote now - if they were paid for it . "

Based on  "The Letters of A Successful TD" and "An Irish Minister of State" by John B Keane. This world premier takes us in the Trials, Tribulations, misadventures and efforts of TD Mr Tull McAdoo to be re-elected in the October Elections to Dail Eireann. He has roped in the help of his faithful Daughter Kate while his wife nurses her various ailments in Bed or Lisdoonvarna - his son Tom is an "eternal Student" but his arch enemy "Flannery" the local school teacher plans to scupper the election for Tull. 

Written in 1967, in "The Successful TD" John B Keane displays his edge for humour and satire that are uncomfortably close the the politics of today ...Peppered with Keane's gallery of madcap characters this show will have you laughing at politics (in a good way) from the start.

EILISH O'CARROLL

EILISH O'CARROLL

€20

Best known as Winnie McGoogan in her brother Brendan's successful BBC sitcom, 'Mrs Brown's Boys', Eilish comes into her own here with this reflective look on an eventful life that includes a strict Catholic upbringing, two failed marriages and coming out as a lesbian at the age of 50. While poignant and deeply moving it is also packed with humour.

A 1950s baby, and the ninth of ten children, she describes her childhood with affection and good humour. Then there's her discovery of orgasmic proportions via the hydraulics on a double decker bus and her discovery of sex! At one stage she was sure that there was something wrong 'down there' because her sex life was unfulfilling. Her discovery that she was a lesbian is also tenderly handled with good humour. The end result is a warm, witty triumph that joyously celebrates being true to yourself.

THE QUIET LAND

€14 / €12 (concession)

PATRICK TALBOT PRODUCTIONS presents  

THE QUIET LAND

By Malachy McKenna

Directed by Bairbre Ni Chaoimh, Starring Des Keogh and Derry Power

***Winner of the PJ O’Connor Award 2014***

Two elderly farmers, Eamon and Nashee, meet at a gate on a remote hillside. They are old rivals, old neighbours. Their conversation is of a gentler time.

But there's nothing gentle about today's conversation. They are forced to confront each other with some heartbreaking truths.

The Quiet Land is a celebration of the humour, resilience and endearing innocence of an older generation as it struggles to survive in the rural Ireland of today.

‘Two quietly epic performances…..don’t miss it.’
Emer O Kelly, Sunday Independent  

‘A glorious, perfectly-pitched pair of performances’
****The Scotsman
