Fringe First winner at Friars’ Gate On this Friday (22nd March), Fishamble Theatre presents the award winning play, 'The Wheelchair On My Face', a look back at a myopic childhood. Written and performed by Sonya Kelly, this production was winner of the Fringe First award at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012 and is a combination of Little Miss Sunshine meets My Left Foot.

"I got my first pair of glasses when I was seven. A nurse came to the school and tested everyone’s eyes. And so it was discovered why I’d thrown bread to the floating crisp packets in our local pond and walked into lamp posts and said ’excuse me'. Until that day the world was a swirl of moving coloured blobs. I thought it was the same for everyone. How wrong I was."

Part memoir, part theatre and part stand-up comedy, this delightful story of a myopic seven year old is brought to you by actor and comedian, Sonya Kelly. The running time is 55 minutes.

"An absolute delight of a show’ The Irish Mail on Sunday

"Beautifully evocative... fabulous’ RTÉ Arena

'Moll' by John B Keane

On Friday, 5th and Saturday, 6th April, St Patrick's Players, Cloverfield return to Kilmallock with their production of John B Keane’s 'Moll'. Hilariously funny, the play is set in the parochial house in the town and parish of Ballast. When Canon Pratt and his two young curates engage Moll as their new housekeeper, Fr Brest and Fr Loran find their meals diminishing daily, while the Canon eats as heartily as ever.

Keane’s wonderful comedy tells of a parish priest's housekeeper’s campaign to provide the parishioners with a decent church and school and to secure a just and lucrative retirement package for herself.

Tickets on or call 063-98727.
