Fíbín Teo Theatre Group Presents: Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore It is a joy to open Clifden Arts Festival with theatre, especially for our youngest audience, promoting the festival’s belief in the power of the arts in education. Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore are at the seaside. Things happen – Hartleby spends a lot of time being bossy and trying to find the perfect spot. Oooglemore does some crazy dancing, shows off a bit, hits the shuttlecock too hard, loses it, spoils the game. Hartleby goes off in a huff. Jeramee makes it all OK. Revelling in delightful innocence and glorious stupidity, Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore is a surprising and surreal encounter…

Kicking All The Boxes is the story of Naoise, a one-time champion kickboxer. We meet Naoise on her 15th birthday as she returns from winning a European kickboxing title; we next meet her 15 years later, on her 30th birthday, and, as the piece progresses, we are taken along three paths of the person she may become. Reminiscent of a theatrical Sliding Doors, Kicking All The Boxes examines decisions and consequences, and the impact they can have on the journey a life can take. It holds a mirror up to a whole generation of 20- and 30-something-year-old women and asks: what do you do when life no longer parties with…

Seamus O’Rourke brings his highly acclaimed one-man play, Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking to Clifden Arts Festival this September. Described as one of the highlights at the Edinburgh Fringe 2015, the play is a coming-of-age piece set in Seamus’s home county of Leitrim… a semi-biographical tale of love, lost chances and settling for the wrong woman. A play where a whole community comes alive on stage to give us the facts behind the fact that Padraig Potts never went anywhere… until now, that is… Seamus O’Rourke is a writer, director and actor, and an independent producer with his own company, Big Guerilla Productions. As a writer, his plays include Ride…

A Curlew Theatre Production: The Loves of Lady Gregory This is a fascinating hour-long sketch of Lady Augusta Gregory’s life – private and public – against the background of Ireland’s advance from the Cultural Revival through the Easter Rising, the War of Independence, and the Civil War, to the new Ireland. As well as her plays, translations, and role as a founder of the Abbey Theatre, the play concentrates on intimate relationships: her marriage; affairs; the death of her son in the Great War; her friendship with Yeats. All these are brought to life in an immediate, human self-portrait of a woman often confined to the margins of literary history.…

Having spent the winter making illuminated work on Arctic foreshores, LUXe return to Clifden Beach with a celebratory landscape spectacle. In the half light as the tide turns and the moon is risen, the Crystal Ship hoists her sails and casts off for a mystical dream journey on a sea of stars. The twilight door, held open with fire and illumination, into worlds of possibility beyond the blue. Walking is involved, so please bring a torch and dress well for the weather. Note: The Journey of the Crystal Ship into another world is a reference to a story from The Book of the Dun Cow, in which the hero, Connla…

Dearest Old Darling – Written by Mary Kenny, Performed by Jeananne Crowley Mary Kenny’s monologue, Dearest Old Darling, draws on the prison letters of Constance Markievicz, a renowned feminist, political activist, and central figure in the Easter Rising. Coming in the centenary year of her election as MP – the first woman in Britain and Ireland – it brings to life the woman as she was. Constance spent five years of her life in prison – first jailed by the British administration, then by the Free State. The letters she wrote to her sister, Eva Gore-Booth, usually began with the endearment, ‘Dearest old darling’. Through them we experience her recollection…
