"Tales of Our Times" For one night only a night of live radio drama with live foley in Bewleys Theatre. Be there as a stellar ensemble cast perform 6 short plays by award-winning new Irish writers with live Foley and music from award-winning composers Stefan French and Rory Pierce.
Let the cast transport you on an aural adventure through the Irish countryside; from a couple trying to solve a rat-infested attic in a creaky fixer-upper house, to a truck driver trying to steer his lorry cabin home on bendy roads one wet and windy night, via a supernatural café, where a woman meets her younger self ... along with a ghost story, a love story and a highly dramatic tale of the last farmer to hold out as his village is flooded to make way for a reservoir.
A stellar ensemble cast including Susie Lamb, Annette Flynn (Fair City), Raymond Keane, Geraldine McAlinden (Scúp), Noni Stapleton (Penny Dreadful), Sheila Moylette (Ripper St), Brendan Corcoran (Watergate Productions), Seamus Greene, Nuala Roche, Jim Carroll (all Barnstorm Theatre) and introducing Kaylin Shanahan (aged 10) will bring these stories life.
Directed and adapted by Orla Murphy from stories by new voices Niamh Boyce (Irish Newcomer of the Year, Bord Gáis), Pat Griffin, (Francis MacManus finalist), Eileen Condon, (Listowel Writers' Award), Mary Healy, Valerie Ryan and Maura Barrett.
