Something for the Weekend.. Limerick Post Entertainment Previews

Limerick-based folk trio Kingfishr

Mary I double drama 

This Thursday to Saturday, students from Mary Immaculate College’s BA in Contemporary and Applied Theatre present an ambitious double bill in Belltable of Love and Information by Caryl Churchill and Lorca’s Blood Wedding adapted by Marina Carr. 

Love and Information presents a kaleidoscope of unconnected scenes populated by over 100 characters. The audience are taken on a journey which questions, celebrates and reflects our disjointed, fast-paced contemporary society. Local director Ann Blake is at the helm of Love and Information.

The students have been in intense rehearsals over the last few months in preparation for staging these shows back to back, 5pm and 8pm, over three dates giving audiences the exciting prospect of catching two shows in one night.

Theatre legend, Myles Breen directs Blood Wedding, a Spanish tale of passion and revenge set in a tribal community joined together by violence and blood. On the day of her wedding, a bride torn between following the strict rules of her world and her desire for freedom sets in course a train of events that will bring death to the village.
