"FREUD's LAST SESSION" was a best seller at box office when it first launched and became one of the longest running shows off Broadway.
Freud's Last Session centres on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites the rising academic star C. S. Lewis to his home in London. Lewis, expecting to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, but soon realizes Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, love, sex, and the meaning of life – only two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own. The play is about two men who boldly addressed the greatest questions of all time.
Director: Nikolai Veprev Actors: Sabina Dorata Dorg, Dominika Jucha and Nikolai Veprev.
"Maruczella" is a perfomance that links humour, the atmosphere of silent movies and the Federico Fellini's cinema. It creates an amazing spectacle, which, from the very beginning snatches the audience's attention.
A combination of nostalgia and comedy steal the audiance's attention until the last second of the perfomance. Losing sense of time and presence, we are moved along with the actors to the Old Railway Station, on a romantic journey through the smoke of forgotten steam locomotives. A Journey, which, the actors portray so delicately weaving and painting amorous scenes of wooing, courtship and flirtation. It is the perfect mixture of pantomime, dance and comedy. "Maruczella" not only amuses but stimulates the senses for a completly unique experience.
Susan Boyle loves wine. What's more she knows what she's drinking and talking about. She's got 2,000 years of Irish wine history to back her up! So, sit back let her pour you a glass of wine while she takes you on a trip with the tenacious Irish people who transformed the wine world and didnt let coming from a grape-free land stop them.
This one-woman theatrical performance fuses interactive wine tasting with storytelling in a warm intimate setting. Audience members will have the opportunity to put their senses to use and hopefully leave with a new insight to drink that has been part of Ireland's history for much longer than we might think.

Jeremiah Styles, a strapping young colt of 47, has finally convinced his loving mother to loosen the maternal apron strings and allow him to accompany her to a meeting of Cuman na mBan. In his excitement he has downed 5 pints of TK Lemonade, followed by another 5 pints of Ovaltine, three measures of sweetened Cocoa and two tins of Carnation's Evaporated Milk.

A new show from acclaimed playwright and director Peter Sheridan based on his memoir, Break A Leg, which tells the story of his life in the theatre, and meanwhile touches on so much moredelving deeply into Sheridan's life, as well as the wider culture and politics of ireland in the 1960's and 1970's.
The theatre, seen through Sheridan's eyes, can do much more than entertain; it can itself be a vehicle of social change. Honestly confronting his emerging problems with panic attacks and alcohol, and blending social history with memoir, Sheridan's story is written gutsy, fresh prose that captures your attention from the first page." In its artful construction, weave of detail and strong pulse of purpose,it is essential viewing" (The Irish Times)
Peter Sheridan is a writer, theatre director, playwright, screenwriter and film director.Peter is the recipient of the Rooney Prize for Literature (1977), two Arts Council Bursaries (1982 and 1986) and was writer in residence at the Abbey Theatre in 1980.With his brother Jim he founded the Project Theatre Company and his writing credits there include The Liberty Suit (in collaboration with Gerard Mannix Flynn), which later transferred to the Royal Court Theatre, London; Emigrants and No Entry opened at the Project and also transferred to the Royal Court and the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), respectively.
