Open Door Theatre Co present The Year of the Hiker by John B. Keane
A tragicomic story of unrequited love set in the 1960s. Twenty years after the reprobate "Hiker" Lacey abandoned his wife and three children, he returns on the day of his daughter’s wedding. He is seeking forgiveness and a place to die. His sister-in-law has assumed the father’s role. She and each member of the family react to the homecoming in their individual manner. Tempers flair, regrets are voiced and poignant moments filled with hatred and love are shared.  Mixing humour and tragedy, laughter and tears Keane explores these emotions in a truly gripping and utterly credible tale.

Cast, Michelle O' Sullivan, Roxanne Byrne, Aaron Sheil, Joe Murphy, Paul Kenna, Stasia Kilroy and Kevin Lalor Fitzpatrick
Tickets €12/€10

Legend of Luke Kelly featuring Chris Kavanagh and the Patriots

Over the past ten years Chris Kavanagh and the Patriot have amazed audiences following powerful sell-out performances in prominent Irish venues with the regular attendance of the Kelly family. In 2009 to mark Luke's 25th anniversary, Chris and co-writer (Hilary Kavanagh) composed a song entitled "Voice of the people" to celebrate his life.

On 30th January 1984 it is said that the whole of Ireland grieved the early death of Luke Kelly. He has left an indelible mark as being the greatest folk artist of the 20th Century.  In October 2001 'A Tribute to Luke Kelly' was launched in Dublin's Hotpress HQ before an audience which included Luke's siblings and relations. Over the past ten years they have amazed audiences following powerful sell-out performances in prominent Irish venues with the regular attendance of the Kelly family.

Lead singer Chris Kavanagh‘s singing talents capture the depth and passion of the great man himself. He is joined on stage by accomplished musicians who all consider it an honour to bring Luke's memory to the stage in the ultimate tribute to the King of Balladeers.
Tickets €20
