Culture Night

There’s a fantastic line-up of events at a number of its locations throughout Ireland for Culture Night, September 20.

In Dublin, the GPO Witness History Museum located in the heart of O’Connell Street will be opening its doors free of charge.

Evening tour guides at Newbridge House and Farm, Donabate will take you through three centuries of Irish history as you enjoy some of the finest examples of Georgian period Irish architecture.

At Malahide Castle & Gardens a unique taster tour experience has been created especially for Culture Night.

The First Pegeen

She was a stage-struck 19-year-old, he was a director of the Abbey Theatre approaching middle age. She was a caution, he was just cautious. She was a city girl, he liked country roads best. Theirs was an unlikely love from the start.

And yet this cockeyed Romeo and Juliet were so enraptured by each other that the affair between JM Synge and Molly Allgood remains one of the Irish theatre’s most endearing and enduring stories.

It opens at Bewley’s Café Theatre on September 24 and runs until October 12. Booking: 086-8784001, www.bewleyscafetheatre.com

Joxer Daly Esq

Joxer Daly Esq will be staged at the Sean O’Casey Theatre, East Wall on Saturday, September 21 at 8pm.

Sean O'Casey's playful scrounger from the classic, ‘Juno and the Paycock’, takes centre stage in this intriguing play from the pen of Eddie Naughton.

Brilliantly portrayed by veteran comic actor, Phelim Drew, Joxer's love of language, humour, literature and song, together with a drinker's purple recollection, make this a performance like no other.

Tickets, which cost €10, are available at www.eventbrite.ie
