Friars’ Gate Theatre presents Inspector Drake & the Perfekt Crime a comedy by David Tristram.  Directed by Max Hennessy.

When a genius commits a murder, the plan is perfect. But is it foolproof? Inspector Drake faces his greatest-ever challenge. Who is the mysterious Doctor Short, and why did he marry a warthog? Has he murdered his fourth wife - or did she murder him first? These are just some of the questions facing the indomitable Drake in this hilarious play.
Cast: John English, Seamus Moloney, Shane O’Brien, Eilis O’Sullivan and Deirdre Curtin.

Tickets €12/€10


Friday 24th February @ 8pm
Over 16’s only

Robert Gogan presents Strolling Through Ulysses!, a comic jaunt through James Joyve’s famous novel written and performed by Robert Gogan.
Strolling Through Ulysses! tells the fun-filled story of Bloomsday - June 16th 1904 - the iconic day around which James Joyce’s Ulysses is based.   Robert Gogan guides you through the curious events and quirky characters of Ulysses, in a humorous, entertaining and informative manner, with extracts from the novel which best illustrate the various aspects of Joyce’s writing - the comical, the descriptive and the complex – without compromising the integrity of the great book.  Joyce, speaking about Ulysses once famously declared, ‘there is not one serious line in it.’ Strolling Through Ulysses! certainly proves that!
Bawdy, irreverent and great fun!
Tickets €12/€10 Over 16’s only                                                         Friends 2 for 1

Running Time 70 mins

Please join us on Tuesday 14th February from 5pm – 6.15 pm as we mark the launch of Youth Theatre Ireland.

Storytelling Workshops  

There are many ways to tell a story, and many different kinds of stories to tell. Storytelling involves developing a vision of a series of events, and then communicating this vision to listeners/readers.  How do you tell a good story? How do you write a good story? In a series of workshops, we will explore these questions.

This course will look at the traditional story, the memoir piece and the fictional creation. 

Tutor: Shelia Quealey
