THEATRE: CROWMAN by Katie Holly

Riverbank Arts Centre, Main Street
Newbridge, Ireland

€18/€16

Crowman is Dan Lonergan’s account of the hilarious characters that inhabit his life on a daily basis and a true love story that never was. By turns poignant and comic, Jon Kenny carries the audience on a roller-coaster ride from his childhood to middle-age, from the hurling pitch to the pub and from one uproariously funny character to the other. It is about lost love and the sense of belonging and not belonging to a small community. Most of all…

€6 Early Bird/€9

This striking feature debut by Tom Sullivan, Arracht (Monster) is set in the wild shores of Ireland’s west coast as the potato blight descends in 1845. Stripped back and fierce, it’s an intense small-scale Irish-language drama which plunges the viewer into the cold desperation of those Famine times. Arracht is a visually expressive piece centred around a population eking out an existence in sparse shelter on forbidding ground, yet whose horizons couldn’t be wider as they take their rudimentary fishing…

When Rike comes across a sinking ship of refugees, she is quickly torn out of her contented world and must make a momentous decision.
