Curse tells the story of one man’s titanic struggle against a changing, commercial, landscape. An indifferent society. A frightened and damaged soul.

On a hill somewhere in modern day Ireland, Jo Jo, a small turnip grower is not doing so bad. The foreign discount stores have sprung up like mushrooms. The cheap migrant workers have arrived in their droves. The boom is booming. He might even have found what he thinks is happiness. So why is he constantly looking over his shoulder? Then bang!. Bang!. Bang!. And Jo Jo is on his knees.

Curse tells the story of one man’s titanic struggle against a changing, commercial, landscape. An indifferent society. A frightened and damaged soul. But above all it is a torrid tale about the void left to fester by the unspoken word. A poignant and often hilarious take on loneliness, isolation and death. Hold on to your heartstrings on this emotional rollercoaster of a play.

SAUL FIA/ SON OF SAUL (15A)                       Sun 26 Oct @ 7.30pm

Laszlo Nemes’ stunning debut feature, Saul Fia (Son of Saul) takes its title from central character Saul, a Hungarian-Jewish prisoner at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp who, in his job as a Sonderkommando, is forced to assist in the grisly day-to-day management of mass exterminationsson-of-saul-still

Laszlo Nemes’ stunning debut feature, Saul Fia (Son of Saul) takes its title from central character Saul, a Hungarian-Jewish prisoner at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp who, in his job as a Sonderkommando, is forced to assist in the grisly day-to-day management of mass exterminations.

When Saul witnesses a young boy briefly surviving the gas chamber, he becomes determined to give the child a proper Jewish burial. First-time actor Geza Rohrig provides the focal point for the film as Saul – the camera rarely strays from his character while he negotiates the intricate workings of the camp in an attempt to carry out this dangerous quest. One of the most talked-about films of the last year, this is an extraordinary, gripping and powerful piece of work.
