Full programme will be launched on 1st September.
By Éadaoin O’Donoghue, (Transplanted from Mikhail Bulgakov)

A vivid exploration of what it means to be human, and animal – with joy, pain, love, loss, faith, ecstasy, despair, sex, beauty, wickedness, music, dancing, humour, and cats. An absurd and superbly comic odyssey.

In a world where women are expected to have the patience of Mother Teresa, the arse of Jennifer Lopez, the social media profile of Kim Kardashian and the BMI of Elle McPherson, the pressure is relentless. Dirtbirds, the comedy duo and internet sensation, present their hilarious new show ‘No Filters’ which takes a close look at the barrage of bullshit we are subjected to on a daily basis and reminds us that despite what we’re told, there is NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT ...

Gabriel García Márquez's darkly comic tale, brought to the stage for children and adults to share.
In a kitchen, in a theatre, two storytellers and their audience ﬁnd something remarkable - a very old man with enormous wings.
The wise neighbour woman tells us he’s an angel. The priest says he’s an imposter. Pilgrims ﬂock to see him, hoping to be healed by him, hoping for a gawp. They leave with something different than what they expected.
Adapted from Gabriel García Márquez’s Un señor muy viejo con unas alas enormes, Dan Colley and Riverbank Arts Centre bring this class

Eagles of Death Metal is an American rock band from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1998 by best friends Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme. Despite their band name, Eagles of Death Metal is not a death metal band. The story goes that a friend was introducing Josh Homme to the death metal genre. When he played a song by the Polish band Vader and made a claim that the song was within the death metal genre, Homme then referred to Vader as "The Eagles of Death Metal". After hearing this phrase, he wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like. With that, the band wa

Coinciding with the announcement, O’Brien has also shared the first song from the forthcoming album, “The First Day”. It was inspired by a trip to the fabled Another Love Story festival in County Meath – beginning as a snatched electronic doodle, i
