by Dolores Mannion

All Up Front is devised and directed by the Cork Arts Theatre’s Artistic Director, Dolores Mannion.

Tina (played by award-winning Cork actress, Marie O’Donovan) is a well-endowed 30 year-old woman. She possesses a keen sense of self-awareness, which forms her unique and self-deprecating sense of humour.

Tina grows tired of playing second banana to her two melons and goes on a quest for love, but she discovers that her “girls” just wanna have fun!

All Up Front is funny, smart, poignant, fearless, and sexy and a wonderful closing play for our 2017 Summer Season.

Take 5 Drama Group present

Beyond Therapy

by Christopher Durang

This farcical comedy focuses on Prudence and Bruce, who are seeking stable romantic relationships with the help of their psychiatrists, each of whom suggests their patient place a personal ad in the newspaper.

Bruce is a highly emotional bisexual who tends to cry easily, a trait Prudence sees as a weakness. Their first meeting proves to be disastrous and the two report back to their respective therapists—libidinous Stuart, who once seduced Prudence, and eccentric Charlotte, who stumbles over the simplest of words, who references the play Equus as a good source of advice, and who interacts with her patients with the help of a stuffed Snoopy doll.

Clearly the two therapists are more troubled than their patients. .

The Taming of the Shrew

by William Shakespeare

Baptista, a rich Paduan merchant, announces that his fair young daughter, Bianca, will remain unwed until her older sister, Katharina, a hellish shrew, has wed.

Lucentio, a student and the son of a wealthy Pisan merchant, has fallen in love with Bianca. He poses as a tutor of music and poetry to gain entrance to the Baptista household and to be near Bianca.

Meanwhile, Petruchio, a fortune-hunting scoundrel from Verona, arrives in Padua, hoping to capture a wealthy wife. Hortensio, another suitor of Bianca, directs Petruchio's attention to Katharina. When Hortensio warns him about Katharina's scolding tongue and fiery temper, Petruchio is challenged and resolves to capture her love. Hortensio and another suitor of Bianca, Gremio, agree to cover Petruchio's costs as he pursues Katharina.

Cabal Theatre Company presents

The Comedy Improvised Halloween Murder Mystery

The Comedy Improvised Murder Mystery Gang are back again with their hilarious ‘off the cuff’ antics for three nights only.

This time they have gathered for a relaxed dinner party but there is never time to relax when this gang get together. Pretty soon things get out of hand with deadly (and hilarious) consequences.

With no script to fall back on the actors must improvise the entire plot with its many twists and turns. Once again the audience secretly decide who the unfortunate victim and the mysterious murderer will be. And they will also provide hilarious 'secrets’ that the cast read out at random moments to add mayhem and mirth to the proceedings. All of this is completed before the show starts so that the audience can then sit back, relax and let the hilarity unfold.
