Bumper Summer Season for Hawk’s Well’s New Brochure Arrives!

Hawk’s Well Theatre has announced a bumper summer season, jam packed with festivals, theatre, music, workshops, comedy and much more. Bursting with something for theatre goers of all ages and tastes, full details can be found in the new June – August 2022 Brochure.

The new jam-packed season features an array of plays, gigs and activities in the theatre’s first full on summer schedule since the end of the pandemic. Highlights include the Hawk’s Well’s own immensely popular Trad@Lunch sessions, and the return of the Cairde Sligo Arts and Sligo Jazz festivals.

In theatre, The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down makes a return journey as June arrives, with Druid delivering an all-singing cast in The Cavalcaders, and Willy Russell’s classic Shirley Valentine recreated onstage in the first half of the month. There’s also a welcome back to The Crokey Hill Club’s ever-popular Three Hail Marys in June, and Beezneez present John McDwyer’s classic comedy Unforgiven in July. August meanwhile, sees Eva’s Echo’s Jungle Door open, as part of Sligo Pride festival.

With festival season in full swing, music lovers won’t want to miss out on what’s happening at the Hawk’s Well. Sligo native BRÍDÍN carries on the four-generation family tradition of Irish music in June, with Americana award-winner Courtney Marie Andrews following soon after. Michael English brings his Celebration Tour in July, while traditional music fans are in for a treat as Trad@Lunch returns weekly during the summer months, with a bumper programme curated by young local musicians Ryan Sheridan, Sinead Johnston and Conor McDonagh.

The Cairde Sligo Arts Festival in July meanwhile, will prove a feast of music, dance, conversation, and more, with innovative guitarist Derek Gripper, writers Bernie McGill and Sheila Armstrong joining Jan Carson in conversation, and a Hawks Well co-production; Brokentalkers’ Uprooted set to premiere as a film this summer.

As if that wasn’t plenty to keep even the most discerning theatre goer entertained, there’s also comedy with Deirdre O’Kane’s ‘Demented’, something for the kids in Awful Auntie, a brace of Artist Coffee Mornings (in June and July), and much much more as the summer season gets into full swing.
