Torch Players, Limerick present One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Dale Wasserman
Based on the novel by Ken Kesey

This is the story of Randle McMurphy, the swaggering, fun-loving trickster who has himself committed to a Mental Institution rather than work in a Prison. He succeeds in transforming the Institution and charming everyone except the tyrannical Nurse Ratched who runs the home with a strict and unbending routine. His clashes with Ratched are at the centre of this great play, which is both funny and moving.  Produced by Maurice O’Sullivan.
Tickets €15/€12


Friday 13th March @ 8pm

Patrick Talbot Productions presents The Keogh Family in Concert Accompanied by Margaret O’Sullivan, piano.

A unique coming-together on stage of one of Ireland’s foremost musical and theatrical families Des Keogh is one of our most popular actors and entertainers. His show The Love-Hungry Farmer has been a phenomenal success nationally and internationally over the last decade. Most recently he has been appearing in Moll at the Gaiety Theatre. Music for Middlebrows, the radio programme he presented for thirty five years, was one of the most popular ever on Irish radio. Des’ wife Geraldine O Grady is an internationally acclaimed violinist, a long-time musical ambassador for Ireland and a great favourite with audiences in this country. Oonagh Keogh, daughter of Des and Geraldine, is one of the leading violinists of her generation and a member of the Irish Chamber Orchestra. The three performers now unite for a very special evening of music, storytelling and entertainment.
