Dates: September 15th & 16th/20th - 23rd, 1pm Preview: September 14th, 1pm
Tickets: €12/€10 (preview & concession)

About the Show:
Rose has travelled to the North to spend the winter with her ill mother and her new husband. As the nights get darker and her mother gets weaker, she struggles to maintain her sanity. Trapped in a cabin full of manipulation and obscurity, Rose must try and find the light to help her escape the dark. Set in the most Northern part of Europe where daylight ceases to exist, Polar Night visits a world that borders on the supernatural, where suicide rates are high and blackness is plenty. A multidisciplinary piece that isolates the senses and intertwines the worlds of theatre and film.

About the Show:
Ru and Luke are throwing a house-warming. They intend to warm their house. However, their guests seem more interested in whispering in the box room than joining the festivities. Explosive characters and unfolding secrets mean Ru and Luke will have to clean up more than red wine stains and glitter. All honey is laugh out loud comedy written by Ciara Elizabeth Smyth and directed by Jeda de Brí. Watch in horror and hilarity as friends become enemies.

Preview: September 19th, 8.30pmTickets: €11

About the Show:
Attracta Tension, the glorious love child of Frankie Byrne and Mailbag, descends on Dublin from the Real Capital to share her Agony Aunt correspondence with you. Running the gamut from the correct use of bath salts ("That'd skin a pig, that dose") to managing a flaky manager in the workplace ("Concentrate on his left eye when conversing with him"), Attracta's life lessons will leave you profoundly changed. There'll be a piano and high stool, so she'll be serving Ann O'Dwyer on Live at 3 realness. Just imagine.

Playboyz by Martin Sharry
Dates: September 29th - October 1st, 7.30pm September 30th & October 1st, 2.30pm Previews: September 27th & 28th, 7.30pm
Tickets: €14 - €20

About the Show:
Patrick wants to live and work in Ireland but he is African. He lands in a bar in the west and is offered a trial run - it is St. Patrick's Day after all. Patrick's survival depends upon the imagination of the locals. Eventually, the drama gives way to something more surreal. The characters fade and the author's relationship with his own father (who is dead) demands attention. Only then is integration possible and people are seen as people, hopefully.

Playboyz is a re-imagining of JM Synge's Playboy of the Western World. Synge says 'on the stage, there must be joy, and there must be reality'. The Irish mix of the craic and the tragic continues but breaks from authority and tradition. This is a play about seeking asylum. It is a play about Irishness. It stays true to the wild spirit of the original, in its questioning of the whole idea of transformation.

'Things will get messy'.

Suitable for ages 16+
Contains strong language
