‘Creaking’ comes to the Hawk’s Well Theatre
As part of this year’s Bealtaine festival, a dynamic play by Noelle Brown Productions tours seven venues nationwide from the 5th to the 26th of May and on Friday the 26th of May, it comes to the Hawk’s Well Theatre.
Based on the lives of real-life Irish people in later years, Creaking explores the everyday challenges and pressures facing us as we age, and how we attempt to defy stereotypes.
The performance centres on Rita who is tired of her humdrum existence. Her adult children are getting on her nerves and she misses her best pal Mary. She feels it’s time to spice up her life!
Co-commissioned by the Pavilion Theatre Dun Laoghaire and directed by Oonagh Murphy, the event is presented as a staged reading. A moving and funny drama documentary, it stars leading actress Geraldine Plunkett and will have a new cast of volunteers at each performance. If you would like to be part of this event, contact us at 071/91-61518 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bealtaine festival was established in Ireland in 1996 and is an Age & Opportunity initiative part-funded by the Arts Council and delivered by hundreds of organisations around the country. One of Ireland’s biggest arts festivals - from dance to cinema, painting to theatre - Bealtaine showcases the talents and creativity of both first-time and professional older artists. It is a chance for people to make new and challenging work, a chance to communicate traditions between the generations.
The show will also be followed by a discussion with the writer, director and members of the cast.
