Meantime Theatre Company presents The Good Father at The Mall Arts Centre – March 13th 2010
Directed by Maria Moynihan and starring James Browne and Una Kirwan, Christian O’Reilly’s ‘The Good Father’ is a contemporary love story of how two people starting at the end try to reach a new beginning.
Tim and Jane are from different sides of the class divide, but when a random meeting at a New Year’s Eve party leads to an unexpected pregnancy they attempt to form a relationship against all odds.
Jack O’Rourke, music teacher at Pobailscoil na Trionoide, will provide an originally-composed live piano score for The Good Father. Jack studied music and composition at University College Cork and has worked musically on other exciting theatre projects such as Dark Week, a promenade piece at the Everyman Palace Theatre for Cork Midsummer Festival 2005, where he collaborated with Cork chanteuse Annette Buckley. He also composed the haunting piano score for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest at The Granary Theatre last year. He fronts folk-rock band, Front Porch and will be supporting Luka Bloom in St. Mary’s Church, Youghal, on Saturday 20th March.
Jack is hugely enjoying his first year at Pobailscoil na Trionoide and is delighted to find himself in the Mecca of budding musical talent. He hopes that the inhabitants of his new hometown will come out to support The Good Father at the Mall Arts Centre, and that everyone enjoys the show!
Tickets on sale on the door at €15/€12, show starts at 8pm !

Sensazione The theatrical fairground
Imagine a fairground that runs off your energy. A high-octane carnival that’s a cross between a night at the circus and the thrill of the funfair.
Once through the gateway the audience, transported to a world of fairground folk with fantastic tales, are free to roam, following the performers from location to location and enjoying the array of custom fairground rides all made from recycled materials. In the true spirit of climate change all the energy to operate the rides comes form the patrons of the funfair….even the lighting.
A globascope, a ferris wheel, a merry-go-round, or a visit to the fairground fortune teller, are all activities on offer, ……the funfair, the carnival, theatre and Read more
