An Evening with Eric Cantona

The Olympia Theatre, Tuesday 30th October - Thursday 1st November 2018

One of the most influential footballers of all time takes to the stage for a handful of selected UK & Irish dates, including a stop off at The Olympia Theatre on Tuesday 30th October. Due to phenomenal demand, a second show has been added on Thursday 1st November!

Eric Cantona is known not just for his skilful footwork and adept acting skills but also his timely utterances. He always has something to say – and he never disappoints. Indeed, his reputation for the enigmatic bon mot has merely added to the lustre of the man that Manchester United supporters still call The King. Expect the evening to revolve round football and the inside stories from the clubs he's played for will be par for the course. Eric will discuss his favourite players and why, the reason he retired at the peak of his career and what it was about Manchester that he loved. He'll talk about what it was like making the Ken Loach movie, Looking For Eric.

But Eric Cantona promises to deliver much more. He'll spill the beans, (he's just not sure yet which ones yet) and then some. As the man himself says, “I am really looking forward to coming to the UK and Ireland to talk onstage. I have lots of stories to tell about my days at the greatest club of all, my beloved Manchester United with the best fans in the world. You can expect a look back at my United career with a replaying of a few of my goals on the big screen and I'll be sharing what they meant to me at the time. I've also got a lot to say about my favourite manager, Sir Alex, and the five years we spent together – hard to believe it's over 20 years ago. There's more as well, I've had a long career in the movies now and made a few well known adverts as well, let's talk about some of those whilst I'm here…”

The Cripple of Inishmaan

Gaiety Theatre

Martin McDonagh's work is known and loved by both theatre and film audiences alike. The Cripple of Inishmaan is set on the small Aran Islands community of Inishmaan (Inis Meáin), off the Western Coast of Ireland in 1934, where the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighbouring Inishmore (Inis Mór) to make a documentary about life on the islands. 'Cripple' Billy Claven, eager to escape the gossip, poverty and boredom of Inishmaan, vies for a part in the film and to everyone's surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance… or so some believe.

This is What Happened

Civic Theatre

Did your dad ever give you lollipops for good behaviour? Would you like me to give you a lollipop now? Would you give me a lollipop now? A trippy triptych of verbal warfare, media spin, and shocking talk-show showdowns. Disarming and alarming This Is What Happened is an unflinching interrogation of objectification. Presented by the highly acclaimed Civic Theatre Company Theatre in Residence, The Corps Ensemble in collaboration with one of The Civic's Associate Artists for 2019: award-winning poet and one of Ireland's most provocative emerging playwrights, Adam Wyeth.
