Dublin, 1971. Sisters tells the story of Bernadette Boland, a single mother shunned by her community, her sister Kathleen, a newlywed dreaming of a perfect life, and the youngest, Noleen, a shop girl eager to embrace the sexual revolution. When Bernadette takes a job at Gaj’s Restaurant, she gets swept up in the urgency of the times and the growing women’s liberation movement. Her journey to empowerment, the discovery of a broader sisterhood and the search for “home” will ultimately put everything at risk. Suitable for age 15+.

“Something wicked this way comes”. In a nightmarish world savaged by war, the body count rises in a taut and explosive drama of naked ambition. The celebrated soldier, Macbeth, haunted by demons of the mind, spirals out of control when the psychological scars of murder, drive him beyond redemption. An extraordinary tale of a golden couple whose lust for power sees them unravel at the seams. Grief and madness, rips them apart. Haunted by supernatural forces and driven to extremes, Macbeth explodes in a bloody, claustrophobic minefield of ego, greed and ambition. Directed by Geoff O’Keeffe, this contemporary, fast paced, and thrilling production is sure to engage and excite. Supported by The Arts Council.
