BEWLEY’S CAFÉ THEATRE @ Powerscourt is proud to present DUBLINERS WOMEN – an adaptation of James Joyce’s Dubliners.

Directed by: Sarah Baxter
Starring: Katie O’Kelly, Madi O’Carroll & Gordon Quigley

“A bell clanged upon her heart. She felt him seize her hand: -Come!
All the seas of the world tumbled about her heart. He was drawing her into them: he would drown her” – Eveline

Birth. Love. Death. 100 years ago.
Immerse yourself in the hidden worlds of Eveline, Clay and The Boarding House, three short stories by one of the 20th Century’s greatest writers, James Joyce. Dubliners’ Women shines a light on the female narratives in Joyce’s iconic collection of stories, and their resonances with Ireland today.

“A delicate, balanced and wistful evening of theatre… [Joyce] would have felt his immortal stories well served by this production, lit as well as it is directed and played” – THE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT

“Old fashioned storytelling that is touching, funny, and performed with gusto by a marvellous cast… An hour of near impeccable theatre” – THE REVIEWS HUB 

“A clever, lively and thoroughly enjoyable production… inventive and deeply engaging” – THE ARTS REVIEW

Lunchtime theatre is presented in the Powerscourt Theatre, Top Floor, Powerscourt Townhouse, South William Street, Dublin 2.

Maker of striking, haunting images that question our armchair relationships with both wilderness and wildlife, photographer, writer and environmental campaigner Dave Walsh comes from Wexford, in Ireland’s south east corner.

Blessed with a strong childhood connection to nature and the marine environment, and driven by a passionate interest in human relationships with the Earth, Dave has sailed on numerous Greenpeace expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic, and has seen the aurora borealis and australis. He’s crossed the equator twice by ocean, been up close with polar bears, humpback whales and Tasmanian devils, camped under the Arctic winter moon and sweated on the northern hemisphere’s largest glacier under the 3am Arctic sun.

Back in ‘civilisation’, Dave’s attention is caught by the dirty magic of daily street life, and with how we use and abuse our energy and natural resources. He currently works with the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition on a campaign to create the world’s marine protected areas, in the seas around Antarctica.

All of the works are available to purchase through The Copper House Gallery, Tel 01 5354332, Email sarah@thecopperhouse.ie

Don’t miss your chance to see Paul Scannell’s incredible and breathtakingly beautiful photography exhibition – now showing for its final weekend in the Powerscourt Gallery on the 1st Floor of the Centre.

 

Rose Henderson and Helen Norton will charm your socks off (and give them a good wash!) in RUBY TUESDAY
By Rose Henderson
Directed by Deirdre Molloy

Starring Rose Henderson (Fair City, Father Ted) and Helen Norton (Fair City, The Heiress)

Mon-Sat 1pm. Tickets from €8 at www.bewleyscafetheatre.com

In her gilded cage in the leafy suburbs of Dublin, Mrs. T has managed to hold onto her middle class lifestyle, but at what cost? Her cleaning lady, Ruby, calls every Tuesday to blow away the cobwebs of Mrs. T’s life with sarcasm, wit and common sense.
This keenly observed comedy brings together two women who come to depend on each other for laughter and sanity, while their home life disintegrates around them.

Mon-Sat 1pm. Tickets from €8 at www.bewleyscafetheatre.com

The Irish Guide Dogs Team will be in the Centre all week highlighting awareness around its assistance dog programme for families of children with autism. Don’t forget to drop in and say hi!

Gearoid Coakley is a landscape photographer from Dublin who has completed a two year project to photograph the length of the Wild Atlantic Way. This is his second major exhibition , the first being the mountains of Ireland. The introduction of the Wild Atlantic Way was for him the perfect opportunity to explore the Atlantic coast of Ireland. He purchased an old camper van and has been back and forth with his cameras ever since.
Much of the Wild Atlantic Way is still relatively unspoiled and in places you can be alone in nature -yours the only footprints on the beach.As you may notice many of his landscapes are taken where mankind’s influence is minimal, if not absent altogether.


Carefully managed, the Wild Atlantic Way is a great avenue for exploration and he hopes you you can get a flavour of what is in store for anyone who travels its path.

St. Patrick’s Day, as always, will be a lively day on the streets of Dublin with tourists travelling from around the world to discover what our city has to offer. Here at the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre we will have lots of fun, family entertainment over the whole weekend to welcome everyone. There will be performances from Trad Group “Binneas”, Irish Dancing and family entertainment including balloon modelling and facepainting over the course of the weekend – 17th – 19th March. On Saturday, we will also have some light entertainment from our harpist on stage for all.

“THE HUMOURS OF BANDON”

“A hilarious new play about the world of Irish dancing…terrific… sharp, charming and hilarious” IRISH TIMES

Written and performed by Margaret McAuliffe
Directed by Stefanie Preissner

From every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish Dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up, but the public aren’t privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium. A coming of age story, full of heart, humour and wisdom, for anyone who had a childhood passion that threatened to overwhelm their life!
