The Lithium Waltz Playwright Barry McKinley A black comedy set in a psychiatric hospital which tells the tale of Billy Carson. Billy is in for an assessment to determine whether this hospital should be his new home. While there he gets some useful dance tips from Tommy Tango, learns about lies from the demon-with-the-clipboard Priscilla, acquires a taste for ‘rocket-fuel’ from The Professor and is shown the ropes by know-it-all Joanie O’Reilly. Last Tango in Little Grimley Playwright David Tristram A local Dramatic Club’s desperate group of actors realise their failing theatre group is faced by a grim future and choose a play to put on in panic – possibly their last ever. Group membership has dwindled to four – audiences aren’t much bigger – and if they don’t come up with rent, they’re going to be thrown out. Warnings: This show is only suitable for adults.
Assemblages and drawings Research, drawings and prints at the Source Gallery, Thurles Drawing on over a decade of image-making and research on themes of protest and urban space, Irish artist Joy Gerrard archives and painstakingly remakes media-borne crowd images. Her subjects include climate change, Brexit, BLM protests and women’s equalities. These crowds are re-imaged in large monochrome paintings and small complex drawings made with Japanese ink. The elemental simplicity of Gerrard’s ink drawings and paintings contradicts the material complexity of making. The viewer considers the precarious freedom of protest and the relation between populism and representative democracy. In her work, the figure of the crowd represents an expression of collective agency. Gerrard’s crowds are often viewed from above in urban environments, indicating media surveillance. For the Source Gallery in Thurles, Gerrard is developing an exhibition which will make visible her working process. She will exhibit working drawings, collages and print assemblages which show how large scale works are developed from small drawings and plans. Joy Gerrard lives and works in Belfast. She graduated with a BA from NCAD, Dublin and an MA and MPhil from the Royal College of Art, London. Gerrard is known for work that investigates different systems […]

“Boat Light” These paintings were created to be uplifting and a celebration of our resilience having come through the last two years of covid. Josephine would like the paintings to lift one’s spirit which is expressed through her use of colour, texture and freedom of application. The dominant colours in the paintings are orange, green and blue. These colours symbolize strength, resilience, joy, positivity, hope, peace and calm, while the boat represents survival and new beginnings.

Keith Walsh is Pure Mental. Having finished up a 5-year stint presenting on National Radio, in the pressure cooker that is a breakfast show, Keith has finally found a bit of time for himself. More importantly, he’s found time to check in with his mental health. Midlife Crisis? Midlife awakening? Breakdown? We’ll find out. This show is part of his therapy and you’re his therapist! Join him on a journey of introspection and exploration, as he locates his demons and traumas in order to try and find the real person underneath the fuzzy mess of stress. Pure Mental is a live theatre show put together with the help of acclaimed performer, writer and director Janet Moran (A Holy Show, Swing and My Romantic History) in the strangest of Covid times – sometimes working in different rooms, often in different counties. But like many others, they got there in the end. We have a show. ‘You will laugh, you might cry, the voices in my head are telling me that you might want to throw rotten fruit at me? Is that still a thing? In the end we’ll all feel a lot better. I hope.’ Keith Walsh. PLEASE NOTE THE START […]
