LEGENDS of Irish music, the Fureys & Davey Arthur make their third appearance at Birr Theatre & Arts Centre on Friday February 18.

You can hear all their hits including I Will Love You, When You Were Sweet 16, The Green Fields of France, The Old Man, Red Rose Café, From Clare to Here, Her Father Didn’t Like Me Anyway, Leaving Nancy and Steal Away among many more.

Meanwhile Jasango Theatre Company present Bombshells, a rip-roaring, explosive and hilarious evening spent with several generations of women on the edge on Saturday February 19.

From the fame-seeking teenager to the frenetic young mother to the simmering widow and the exultant, terrified bride, these women will surprise and delight you in this series of vivid monologues.

Jasango Theatre is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary company, bringing together musicians, visual artists and theatre practitioners to create fresh, multi-dimensional theatrical events. This production showcases smart, haunting music by the Go Away Birds, and the evocative artwork of Cork Artist Katie Egerton.

Tickets are still available for A Musical Brindisi on Saturday, February 12. This newly formed ensemble of David Martin, Jonathan Carter and Sinead Conway (X-Factor finalist with The Conway Sisters) is a reunion of friends who enjoy their music and are promising a varied programme from opera to some twentieth century compositions.

‎The Time That Remains is the Film Club presentation at 8pm on Tuesday, February 15. This is the third in a loose trilogy of films about the Israeli state and the Palestinian people giving a sense of a cultural and emotional resistance to the Israeli state: not rage, but a defiant buoyancy of spirit of the Israeli state.

Told in a series of deadpan comic scenes, the film is superbly controlled and composed, brilliantly shot, with breathtaking technique, touching moments of gentleness and compassion – there is charm and wit in abundance here.

Don’t forget if you missed the indomitable Neil Delamere when he was here in January, due to huge popular demand a second date has been announced for Wednesday March 2. Contact the Theatre Box Office for tickets.

The Box office opens from 1pm to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Contact 057 91 22911 or check out www.birrtheatre.com for further details.
