Bloomsday performance at The Olivier Cornet Gallery

Delighted to perform part of Molly Bloom’s final soliloquy as part of Bloomsday celebrations this year at the ‘Drawing on Joyce’ exhibition featuring work by Paula Meehan, Nickie Hayden, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Maser and Robert Russell at The Olivier Cornet Gallery. Loved sharing the process through which I facilitated the writing of some Haiku poetry with SAOL Project which you’ll find printed on Nickie Hayden’s beautiful copper plates. All proceeds from the sale of these being kindly donated by Nickie to the SAOL Project.

Graffiti present ‘Generation Revolution’ a new play by Raymond Scannell

Graffiti Theatre Company present: ‘Generation Revolution’, a new play by Raymond Scannell with Fiona Lucia McGarry as Eleanor directed by Emelie Fitzgibbon.

What is ‘a rebel’? What is a ‘rebel act’? And what happens to the children of the revolution, to those who inherit the legacy?

Eleanor is a rebel – against family, against school, society norms, against everything. Given a book written by the daughter of Terence MacSweeney, she sets off on a gothic quest for answers to questions.

Raymond Scannell’s exciting and provocative new play, Generation Revolution, is a quirky take on rebellion, inheritance and identity. It is where magic realism and history blend.

This exciting new production will be available to post-primary schools, youth theatres and members of the public from 21st November 2016 – 9th December 2016 and will be performed in Graffiti’s Theatre in Blackpool, Cork as follows:

Monday 21st November –Friday 9th December 10.00am & 2.00pm: School performances.

Thursday 24th November, 1st & 8th December 8.00pm: Youth Theatre and Public performances.
