Thomas Clarkes GFC in support of The Niamh Louise Foundation

Present the Brassneck Theatre Company’s

The Man In The Moon

by Pearse Elliott

THURSDAY 19th April @ 8pm

Admission £12.50

Sean Doran hasn’t had the best of luck. He’s been sacked from his job, his girlfriend has left him, taken their child and he’s back living in his ma’s house. If this kid bought a duck, it would drown.

Alone with a carryout at the Half Moon Lake, Sean tries to make sense of it all. Over the course of one night, he takes us on a soul-searching journey through life, love and death, via his past, present and future.

A hilarious rollercoaster with a dark twist, Man In The Moon is the tender story of one man’s resolve to overcome everything that life has to throw at him.

From the producers of smash-hit shows The Holy, Holy Bus and A Night With George, Brassneck Theatre Company in association with The Balloon Factory presents Pearse Elliott’s, Man In The Moon.

This show is part of an awareness initiative by Thomas Clarke’s GFC Dungannon in conjunction with The Niamh Louise Foundation

Sword in the Sand

by Pearse Elliott

Friday 4th May @ 8pm

Admission £10

West Belfast meets East (Middle-East that is) in this new hard-hitting, dangerous comedy by Belfast writer Pearse Elliott.

Azir, a political refugee, comes here to escape a life of persecution only to find himself right back where he started. He gets taken advantage of by Duff a local drug enforcer and gets dragged into a life of crime from which he tries to escape.

However, Azir is not the only victim of Duff’s sociopathic behaviour a Duff’s impressionable protégées Cricky and Lala are also led down a path of delusional dreams and idealistic dead ends.

Award winning Pearse Elliott and Rawlife theatre company have a proven track record of presenting edgy, dark but funny theatre about modern life as in ‘As the Tide Ebbs’; ‘Septic Tiger’ and ‘The Christening’.

You will not want to miss this black comedy about how idealism and the struggle for freedom can lead to many different places, some hopeful but others violent.

The Bardic Theatre Donaghmore presents

Rat in The Skull

by Ron Hutchinson

Directed by Sean Faloon

Saturday 12th May @ 8pm

Admission £12

THE PRODUCTION CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE.

The Craic Theatre is delighted to host the latest production by our good friends from the Bardic Theatre Donaghmore.

Set in the midst of ‘The Troubles’, ‘Rat in the Skull’ centres on an interview between an RUC inspector and a young Catholic man in London detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. Told from the point of view of an Ulster Protestant, it casts a new perspective on the struggle.

Their sectarian differences fall away when confronted with ‘casual loathing’ of their English counterparts.

DIRECTED BY SEAN FALOON
