Also coming up in early February is the first piece by Kevin Barry (Beatlebone, City of Bohane) written for stage – Autumn Royal
A dark comedy, set on the northside of Cork city, Autumn Royal is about life and death, love and hate, hysterical dependency, jealousy, rage, horror, and homicidal notions – or, in other words, it’s a play about a family.
From 8 February to 11 February at 7.45pm
