SAT. AUG 10th 7.30

Blood In The Alley presents

THIS EBONY BIRD by Michéal Lovett

Directed by Geoff Gould

Performed by Denis Foley, Anthony Morris and Fiona Condon

Synopsis:

The date is September 29th 1979, the night prior to the Pope’s visit to Limerick. It is also the night Batty Spender, a local sacristan, tackles his demons. He has seen a lot of things he shouldn’t have seen, heard a lot that he shouldn’t have heard and he needs to tell someone.

Reviews:

‘Beautifully staged…viciously funny’ Sunday Times ****

‘Darkly comic it has a raw heart’ Sunday Tribune ****

‘Major credit for this startling Irish debut’ Irish Examiner ****

 

 

SAT. AUG 17th 7:30

World Première of:

WITNESS by Carmel Winters

Written and Directed by Carmel Winters

Performed by Kate Stanley Brennan

Synopsis:

‘Witness’ is a theatrical tour-de-force from award-winning writer/director Carmel Winters. Based in part on Carmel’s critically acclaimed feature film ‘Snap’, ‘Witness’ is a powerful new play about surviving the past and embracing the future. Most of all it’s a play about the true grit of the human spirit – and the courage it takes to love…
