    SEAN KELLY & JULIE KELLEHER

    Its hard to believe that five months have already passed since we took over the leadership of this beautiful and storied theatre. Serving the Everyman and its audiences is a unique honour and we are very proud to present our first full season of shows to you.

    Highlights include theatre treasure Simon Callow in top form with The Man Jesus (for one night only!), Des Bishops Coming Home with tales of learning to do stand up in Chinese, and a visit from our national theatre as John B. Keanes Sive gets the Abbey Theatre treatment.

    The month of September will see a fascinating array of plays either dealing directly with or inspired by true events Between Trees and Water, an offsite performance by Painted Bird Productions, The Laramie Project, which features some of Corks most ambitious young performers, and the chilling tale of What Happened Bridgie Cleary? by Bottom Dog Theatre. Were particularly thrilled to welcome Actors Touring Company (UK) with David Greigs daring play The Events (The Guardians Best Play of 2013), during which four Cork based choirs will share the stage with this top class company.

    This autumn programme proudly wears its Cork credentials on it sleeves, showcasing the work of Corks excellent theatremakers and musicians.

    Highlights include the much-loved Pakie OCallaghan and Frank Twomey in Farewell to Santa Ponsa, Majella Cullagh in Love Really, Karen Underwood in Of Ladies Lost and Found and Linda Kenny in perennial favourite The Everyman Sunday Songbook.

    Theres much much more besides, including music, comedy, family shows, even more theatre, the best Morecambe and Wise show youre ever likely to see, the Jazz Festival, and family favourite the Christmas Panto, as CADA and the Everyman sprinkle fairy dust over the magical tale of Cinderella!

    We hope youll join us for a moment of joy, fun or inspiration during this coming season. In their last brochure, our predecessors described the Everyman as a unique and priceless gem. We couldnt agree more. Heres to the future!

    The 'Live' Last WaltzBack by popular demand, the spectacular, live, re-enactment of the music from Martin Scorsese's documentary, The Live Last Waltz with ten piece band, full brass section and all the special guests, returns for one night only.

    The Last Waltz was a live performance, filmed and directed by Martin Scorsese which commemorates the history and music of Bob Dylan and The Band and is regarded as the greatest rock and roll concert movie of all time.

    It started as a concert - it became a celebration and then one of the best loved music films of all time, but of course it was the guest list on the night that turned it into the greatest gig of all time as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Dr John, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond, Ronnie Hawkins and a host of others joined The Band on stage.

    The Rape of Lucretia

    MUSIC

    The pity is that sin has so much grace, it moves like virtue

    In this opera of devastating beauty a state of perpetual war exists. Terror has a grip on the land. Justice has been put on hold, truth blurred and only the strong prevail.

    This bold updating of Brittens chamber masterwork will showcase the best of emerging Irish singing talent in a daring staging of this searing tale of civic corruption, sexual desire and the abuse of power.

    Creative team: Stephen Barlow (Conductor), Michael Barker-Caven (Director), Joe Vanek (Designer)

    DRAMATickets 25 | Concession 22 Thu 11 Sun 14 Sept | 8pm

    Laramie, Wyoming, USA, a small town which became infamous overnight in October 1998. A young man is abducted, tied to a fence, tortured and brutally beaten. Was it for his shoes and wallet or something more than that? This is the scandal that shocked America and the world. The young man was left to die and this play follows his tragic story and the debate about hate crimes that followed.

    The play draws on hundreds of interviews with inhabitants of the town, journal entries from the writers and published news reports. This production features some of Corks finest young theatre talents, all former students at the Wolfe Stage School, who have shown huge commitment and ambition in bringing this excoriating piece of theatre to life.
