Linenhall Autumn 2014 Programme Announced!

The Linenhall Arts Centre goes galloping into the Autumn Season with a lucky-bag crammed full of delights.

We have a very strong music line-up with Alan Kelly and Eddie Reader, The Vallellys, Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh, De Temps Antan, Furnace Mountain, Coda, (those guys are making a name for themselves!) and a wonderful classical evening with solo cellist Leonard Elschenbroich.

We have a cracker of a RoolaBoola Children's Arts Festival, with an emphasis this year on stories and books. Slingsby Theatre Company from Australia are performing The Tragical Life of Cheeseboy for older children, which is and exquisite piece of theatre craft, and Branar return with a magical show based on the Oliver Jeffers book The Way Back Home. Our children’s theatre programme is top notch and remember you don’t have to be a child to share the magic.

We have some pretty good theatre for adults too. Two big shows to watch out for are Andrew Flynn’s production of Stuart Carolan’s ‘Defender of the Faith’ and Mikel Murfi directs Lennox Robinson’s The Faraway Hills for Nomad. Our local boys are also busy. The Pull, the popular comedy show by Liam Horan and John Corless of Half Solid Productions is here in late September, and the following week we are showcasing six new short plays from this year’s Claremorris Fringe. That’ll be a great night for all the community drama groups in the area. Director Trisha Keuster returns to her beloved Chekhov with a production of Uncle Vanya for theatreWorksWest.

All performance events are now available to book online. Give yourself lots to look forward to this Autumn.
