The Nualas Are All Spanxed Up!

Thu 12 Oct 2017 8PM Main Auditorium // €22 / €20 conc

It's 2017 - The Nuala sequins are out, the hurty shoes are on, the hair is coiffed to within an inch of its life and the liposuction didn't work. But who cares! They've got spanx!
Yes, Ireland's favourite all-girl, musical-comedy trio, The Nualas, are on the road again! Expect an evening of scintillating new song, spleen-rupturingly hilarious new chat and a stunningly bendy repertoire of new moves, despite the fact that they've lost all feeling from the waist down (the spanx).

Since their first outing in 1995, their unique brand of intricately-arranged, self-penned songs and provocative perspective on everything from spanx to hors d'oeuvres to global apocalypse has wowed audiences from Singapore to Moate. In an utterly fabulous career they've played extended seasons in London, Melbourne and New York, written and recorded several series for BBC Radio 4, appeared at the Royal Albert Hall, released a video (yes, 'video') with Sony, split up and got back together again, clocked up innumerable TV appearances and met Chris de Burgh in the flesh. Now, with this fabulous new extravaganza, The Nualas promise to leave your ankles swollen with laughter, your ear drums throbbing in sheer musical ecstasy and your eyeballs bulging out of their sockets in disbelief as they knock it out of the comedy park yet again (in spanx).

Joanne McNally - Bite Me

Directed by Una McKevitt

Tue 24 Oct 2017 8PM Main Auditorium // €16 / €14 conc // Dur: 60 mins

This is the story of Joanne’s amaaaaaaazing diet.
She didn’t just lose weight though; she lost jobs, friends and fellas, but she didn’t care because she could wear bangles as belts and that’s all that mattered. Then one day, over her morning carrot, Joanne realized she’d lost her mind. Turns out it was pinned to a lost property board up in space, enjoying the view and its new found freedom. Trying to entice it back became the hardest, funniest, greatest and weirdest time of her life.
