The Lonesome West
March - May 2020
It seemed like an ideal posting for the young Catholic Priest Father Welsh. The tiny Irish town of Leenane, where nothing ever happens……
Two murders later, and Father Welsh is wondering if he made the right decision. After the funeral of the father of the Connor brothers, who sadly died due to an "accident with a shotgun", he returns to their small cottage to offer sympathy, and help the brothers cope with their grief.
What he finds instead are two men who’ve spent a lifetime bickering and arguing over the smallest thing. Are Valene and Coleman hiding a secret, and do they know more about the death of their dad than they’re letting on? A visit from local good time girl Girleen, results in a few sales of the local brew Poteen, and a series of shocking and hilarious revelations, resulting in another tragic death in Leenane, but whose?Following The Beauty Queen of Leenane, this very black comedy is part of the Leenane trilogy from acclaimed playwright Martin McDonagh.
The Wind in the Willows
June - July 2020
White Cobra presents a sparkling new
adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s classic story of Toad, Ratty, Mole and
Badger, the adventures and imprisonment of Toad, his escape and then the
battle to regain Toad Hall from the wicked weasels. This
adaptation presents the story in an entirely new way while at the same
time retaining ninety per cent of Kenneth Grahame’s original dialogue.
It sweeps away any fustiness that might have crept in over the years but
keeps the humour and the genuine feeling
of friendship that has made it such a classic, not just for children
but for adults as well. This Wind in the Willows has something in it for
everyone to enjoy.
