Dubliner's Women - Saturday 2nd December, 8pm, Tickets €16/€12.50 (plus €1 Booking Fee)
“Mrs. Mooney dealt with moral problems as a cleaver deals with meat: and in this case she had made up her mind” – The Boarding House
All the seas of the world tumbled about her heart. He was drawing her into them: he would drown her” – Eveline
“They led here to the table amid laughing and joking and she put her hand out in the air as she was told to do. She moved her hand about here and there in the air and descended on one of the saucers. She felt a soft wet substance with her fingers and was surprised that nobody spoke or took off her bandage.” – Clay
Immerse yourself in the hidden worlds of Joycean Dublin with a new adaptation of James Joyce’s iconic collection of Dubliners short stories. Dubliners Women shines a light on the lesser-known women’s stories – The Boarding House, Clay and Eveline, bringing the characters to life in a highly performative and theatrical storytelling style. The script is a faithful adaptation of Joyce’s text, finding the humour and quintessential Irish wit in the stories through performance, drawing you in to the inner narratives of the central characters.
The stories are presented in a strong physical storytelling style, celebrating traditional Irish culture through humour, music and literature, while also exploring the main themes in the text such as reproductive justice, institutionalisation and the complexity of human relationships. The thematic universality of the stories, teamed with their understanding of the particularities of Irish culture and humour, make this a highly enjoyable production.

An enchanting Christmas story for children and families.
This masked performance tells the story of two very different children; a little polish girl, Helda and a rich boy, Jurgen, whose adventures together break down barriers on Christmas Eve.
Helda’s imagination is filled with her grandfathers folk tales taught to her through the enchanting voice of the cello. Jurgen is surrounded by beautifully wrapped presents but needs a friend to help make his everyday magical.
Helda takes Jurgen on a journey of creation and fantasy. When the clock strikes midnight and the silver moon is high in the air, the two friends will never be the same again….
