The Matchmaker | Friday 6th May at 8pm

John B Keane
Mary McEvoy (Glenroe) and Jon Kenny (d’Unbelievables) star in John B Keane’s comedy drama exploring rural loneliness and the search for love late in life.
The play follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O Connor to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn. Using his inimitable way with words and his one sense of “devilment” and wit, Keane delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of this collection of lonely county people and creates a marvelously colorful world, taking us back to a simpler time, when phones were few and far between and the only web was one left behind by spiders.

“I saw it, laughed, cried, loved it and went again.” – The Guardian

Not suitable for under 12’s

FILM CLUB: A Walk in the Woods | Tuesday 10th May at 2pm

Access cinema
Ken Kwapis, USA, 2015, 104 mins, Cert: 15A
After two decades of living in the UK, renowned travel writer Bill Bryson (Robert Redford) returns to America with his English wife Cathy (Emma Thompson). In an attempt to find a way to reconnect with his homeland, he impulsively decides to hike the Appalachian Trail, a trek of over 2,000 miles stretching from Maine to Georgia. With Cathy protesting against the idea of Bill doing the trip solo, an out-of-the-blue call from old friend Katz (Nick Nolte), offering to accompany him, seems like the perfect solution. But as their journey unfolds, this odd couple realise that they may have underestimated the scale of the adventure they have undertaken.
Starring: Robert Redford, Nick Nolte, Emma Thompson

The Big Fellow | Saturday 14th May at 8pm

C-Motion Media
The Big Fellow is a non-stop, edge-of-your-seat theatrical adventure, laced with humour and scenes of daring and intrigue. It presents the compelling story of Michael Collins: his rise from unknown volunteer in the GPO to military leader who brought down an empire only to meet his untimely death at the hands of former comrades. Much more than a straightforward dramatisation of the life of a hero, however, this is also the story of his biographer, the literary genius Frank O’Connor, who witnessed traumatic scenes as a timid adolescent soldier fighting against Collins, and is now seeking to make reparation.

As The Big Fellow is conjured to unruly and mischievous life by his writer, the epic tale of the birth of a nation is re-lived by both men: the one who survived it and came to understand the disappointment that inevitably follows the dream, and the tragic hero who perished in his effort to broker a waking compromise.

Tickets: €16 / €14
