  • A note from ourArtistic Director

    Welcome to 2015 at the Everyman! The support you showed in 2014 for our first full season has been enormously heartening so it is with a great deal of excitement (and perhaps a pinch of trepidation!) that we reveal to you the January to May season. We hope it inspires, challenges and entertains you.

    Expect to be bowled over by some of our season highlights, kicking off with the promise of another

    spectacular opera as Gounods Faust gets the Everyman and Cork Operatic Society treatment. We welcome the first ever Irish production of Martin McDonaghs extraordinary play The Pillowman, and even though lots of us have seen Tom Crean - Antarctic Explorer already, we cant wait to have it back again because it really IS that good.

    Presenting the best of theatre made here in Cork, is, as ever at the heart of what we do, and in the case of our season opener - MATCHED: Every Mans Guide to Campaigns of the Heart not alone are we presenting but producing it too. This hugely entertaining comedy is designed to take the sting out of the mid-January slump as we thought there was no better way to kick off the new year than with a good old laugh! We take a turn into the gothic with Henry James The Turn of the Screw over Easter but continue the theme of homegrown hilarity with the return of God Bless the Child from the writings of Frank OConnor.

    As the glitter dust settles on panto season, we must remind families who love to come to the Everyman that we have some must-see shows on the way for small people and grown-ups alike. Theatre Lovett returns with one of our favourite-ever family shows The Girl Who Forgot To Sing Badly in late January and Dr Seuss fans can see

    the storybook pages come to life as we welcome the National Theatre (UK) production of The Cat in the Hat.

    Music and comedy fans, never fear! For those of you who like nothing more than to laugh your socks off, well, we couldnt help but ask Des Bishop back again, you enjoyed him that much last time round, and well also welcome Bernard OShea, PJ Gallagher and Eilish OCarroll of Mrs Browns Boys fame. Brendan Bowyer is back in town in January and The Everyman Sunday Songbook is back in April with a feast of favourites to sing along to!

    And thats not even the half of it. The best of touring theatre to make you laugh, cry and everything in between can all be found here: from the provocative HEROIN by THEATREclub to the award-winning Beowulf: The Blockbuster, from Carmel Winters challenging Witness to Peter Gowens heart-warming The Chronicles of Oggle.

    We have so many stories to tell you this season, and we hope you can enjoy as many of them as possible!

  • MatchedEvery Mans Guide to Campaigns of the Heart

    COMEDY

    Inspired by Chekhov's much lovedone-act comedies The Bear and The Proposal, Matched is a light hearted and entertaining look at one woman's trials in trying to find (and hold on to) a husband.

    Set in one of Ireland's Big Houses in the early part of the 20th century, audiences can look forward to a night of comical misunderstandings involving debts, duels, land, livestock and love!

    Natalie, a slightly desperate heiress, is eager to marry Nicholas, if they can only stop fighting long enough for him to propose; Henry, a retired officer of the Hussars, has no intention of flirting with anyone, let alone falling in love or marrying. But, as the best tee-shirts say, stuff happens. The outcome is a post-Christmas double dessert designed to banish January blues.

    Tickets 26 Sun 25 Jan | 8pm

    THEATREclubs award-winning show is an explosion of the social history of Heroin in Ireland over the last forty

    years. HEROIN is a radical staging of how we got here, and how much we care.

    This is the story you were never told about the new republic, of the person you never saw, of what you built and then

    demolished. Its the big one, the bad one, the one you never thought youd try. Its everything that ever happened to us, the

    words that were never spoken and how the ones we voted for kicked us in the teeth.

    HEROIN was developed in collaboration with the staff and clients of Rialto Community Drug Team - Mark Kenny, Billser Lennon, Tony May & Graham Ryall, Rachel Keogh, Gerard

    Kelly, Conor Cillian Madden & Ryan OConnor.The book Dying to Survive by Rachel Keogh is read from during the performance.

    THEATREclub are part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre and grant aided by CREATE, The Arts Council of Ireland and Dublin City Council.

    Theatre Love! presents

    Peggy OHegarty and her parents are packers. They squeeze fruit into tins, foxes into boxes, even bikes into brown paper bags. And all the while Peggy sings with the voice of an angel a grossly unfortunate angel, who cant sing at all.

    But one day work stops working, and the jobs stop coming, and Peggy steps outside to find that winter has arrived and everyone in her city gone!

    Ingenious performer Louis Lovett leads the audience on an untamed adventure that crosses snowy lands and wild seas. As Peggy desperately tries to save the day, we learn about love, loss, the reassurance of goats, and the courage to sing gloriously on or off-key.

    The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly was originally produced by The Ark in association with Theatre Lovett

  • Faust

    OPERA

    Prepare to be mesmerised by one of the most highly anticipated shows of the year. Following the success of Der Vampyr, Orpheus and Pagliacci, The Everyman and Cork Operatic Society promise to thrill audiences once again as they join forces to present a new and daring production of Charles Gounods Faust. Premiered in Paris in 1859, Faust is based on the legend of a man who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge and power. It was once one of the most popular and most performed operas in the world and has had a powerful influence on composers and writers for centuries. Join Cara OSullivan and Jung Soo Yun, in his Irish debut, with an incredible cast of Irish and international singers, a 42 piece orchestra and the chorus of Cork Operatic Society. This visually stunning and musically enchanting production promises to push all boundaries with its rich melodic score and darkly seductive storyline underscored with spectacular staging and deeply dramatic performances.

    During a Christmas Eve card game, the familiar-looking stranger Mr. Lockhart reminds Sharky of the bargain he made when they last met in prisonand Sharky suddenly finds himself playing a game with the stakes set at his soul.

    One wintry morning Prudencia Hart, an uptight academic, sets off to attend a conference. As the snow begins to fall, little does she know who or what awaits her there. Inspired by the border ballads - and delivered in a riotous romp of rhyming couplets, devilish encounters and wild karaoke - Prudencias dream-like journey of self-discovery unfolds.

    WitnessWritten by Carmel Winters (B for Baby and Best Man) Witness is a spell-binding portrait of a mother and son, whose powerful story will pin you to your seats from start to breathless finish.

    Two years ago Shannon's teenage son did something that shocked the nation. She has finally agreed to a public telling of what happened and why. But while the feisty young mum tells us one story, we see a very different story unfold onstage, as her son Stephen relives not just his own history, but also the past his mother denies. Based in part on the award-winning feature film Snap, Witness is a theatrical tour-de-force from Irish Times Best New Play winner Carmel Winters and leading actress Kate Stanley Brennan.

Not willing to disappoint the children's charming Uncle, she agrees to his one condition, that he must never contact her. When Miles, the young nephew, is expelled from school without an explanation she finds herself dealing with horrors the Master concealed from her alone.

    Celebrating this, his 80th year, one of Irelands most renowned actors and performers, Des Keogh, gets to fulfil a life-long ambition to play legendary Irish man of letters George Bernard Shaw.

    Following the phenomenal success of The Love-Hungry Farmer by John B. Keane, and hot on the heels of his appearance in the acclaimed revival of Moll at the Gaiety Theatre, Des will now perform in this hugely entertaining new play, which he also devised, about the many ladies in the extraordinary life of one of the greatest playwrights of all time.

    George Bernard Shaw was the author of Pygmalion, which became the universally acclaimed film My Fair Lady. Other titles include Arms and the Man, St Joan, Heartbreak House, Major Barbara and countless others. He was also a hugely controversial essayist and commentator. Shaw not only shared anecdotes about the loves of his life, but also his forthright views on sex, marriage and celibacy.

    Join Des Keogh as he becomes George Bernard Shaw in a special evening of wit, passion and humour in this a very special year.
