The Age of ConsentThe Age of Consent   3 Sep
(The Green Room Theatre Company)

The Age of Consent places in counterpoint two acutely uncomfortable monologues about childhood, responsibility and the shattering of innocence. One voice is a teenager awaiting his release from a correctional facility after serving his time for the murder of a child. The other is the young mother of a child performer, ruthlessly scheming for fame and fortune, and making sure her daughter will do absolutely whatever it takes. The characters are united by a sense of denial, as well as the humanity that can exist behind even the most monstrous abuse. Morris’s controversial and powerful play premiered at the Edinburgh Festival in 2001, and was condemned and acclaimed for tackling the subject of child killers.

The Lady In The VanThe Lady In The Van   10 - 17 Sep
(The Crescent Theatre Company)

In 1974, Alan Bennett encountered Miss Mary Shepherd, an elderly eccentric living in a van in the street near his home in Camden Town. He eventually allowed her to park her van in his garden, the idea being that she would stay three months - but those three months extended to fifteen years.

Derek Ryan - This is MeDerek Ryan - This is Me   29 Sep
(Made of Gold Entertainment Ltd)

Derek Ryan’s rise to become one of the biggest stars of Irish Country music has been phenomenal. In just over five years few artists have made such an impact on the Irish country scene like the Co. Carlow singer songwriter. Having played to sell out concert audiences around the world with Irish boyband D-Side, the young heartthrob has brought a distinctive fresh sound to Irish country.
