Bewley’s Café Theatre presents Buridan’s Ass, a comedy by S. R. Plant. Starring Michael James Ford and Ruairi Heading. Directed by Iseult Golden
The outrageous and acclaimed cult comedy Burdan’s Ass, which enjoyed a sell-out run in Bewley’s Café Theatre last year, is going on the road this summer. Mahone, the last in a line of taxidermists of Russian descent, is struggling to save his dying business. The trade in stuffed animals has hit rock bottom and his only commission, the corpse of a much-loved pet badger, has gone disastrously wrong. Moreover he is beset by a series of emotional and philosophical crises and is haunted by the demons of his philandering past. But, spurred on by his irrepressible apprentice Ernest Blades, Mahone sets out to overcome the paralysing effects of Buridan’s Ass Syndrome and to find redemption through physical passion.

The Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish
There’s a tendency for the word ‘unique’ to be bandied around a little too freely in music circles, but that’s the only way to describe Jerry Fish’s genre bending style. A highly charismatic performer who refuses to countenance audiences having anything but a good time, Jerry routinely fills the country’s biggest venues with his travelling musical medicine shows, his swaggering vocal, generous and infectious smile and that fantastic vaudeville moustache. Jerry’s swaggering vocal has been described as Tom Waits in a good mood, or Leonard Cohen doing Dean Martin. Smiles come aplenty and witty lyrics are definitely Mr. Fish’s currency of choice, but Jerry’s songs have been so well crafted that they deserve more than a casual, amused listen. ‘The Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish’ is an intimate, stripped-down, theatre style show in which Jerry performs his favourite songs from a career spanning over two decades.

CallBack theatre presents Fred & Alice, written and directed by John Sheehy. Starring Cora Fenton and Ciaran Birmingham.
A blistering head wreck played at a hilarious pace!
After more than 150 performances, the five star award winning Fred & Alice is back! It’s not easy to get by in this crazy old world is it? But Fred and Alice have discovered that all you really need are 2 tennis rackets, disproportionate reactions to minor accidents, an immature coping strategy and each other. Fred and Alice first met in the home. It wasn’t really a home but Fred always called it a home because that was where he lived, and if you are not living at home then where are you? It was love at first sight for Alice. Fred didn’t talk to her again for years but then eventually Fred got used to her and it was love at first sight for him too. From their days in care, to independent living, Fred and Alice negotiate the perils and pitfalls of life and love. Come see this joyous celebration of individuality. Running Time – 1hr.
