“What’s The Story Rory”, Thursday 3rd October 2019 at 8:00pm
Rory O’Connor is Ireland’s favourite online funny man and bestselling author, otherwise known through his social media sketches as Rory’s Stories.
Rory’s Stories takes a hilarious and frank look at every aspect of Irish life. From the GAA to the Guards and everything in between, Rory’s quick comedic wit perfectly captures what it means to be Irish.
Bringing his sketches to life in his stand-up shows, he has sold out venues across Ireland, and even as far as Australia and the Middle East. Rory took his debut show ‘What’s the Story Rory?’ to Irish arts theatres in 2019 and sold out all 14 shows!
Show starts @ 8:00pm. Tickets: €21 from Box Office/ Tel: 051-874402 or www.theatreroyal.ie
“A Night Spent Dirty Dancing”, Friday 4th October 2019 at 8:00pm
Back by popular demand on Friday October 4th ‘A Night Spend Dirty Dancing’ pays homages to the greatest soundtrack in history and is often copied but never equalled.
Over two hours of nonstop hits, this is the premier concert celebration to all the iconic music from the Dirty Dancing plus most ‘chick flicks’ and dance movie soundtracks of all time.
An all singing, all dancing, high energy, fun concert spectacular.
Show starts @ 8:00pm. Tickets €25 from the Box Office/ Tel:051-874402 or www.theatreroyal.ie
“Wet Paint”, Saturday 5th October 2019 at 8:00pm
Fresh from his acclaimed performance as Billy Murphy in the TV series The Young Offenders and the feature film of the same name which preceded it, Shane Casey returns to the stage in the 2019 national tour of WET PAINT, a play he has also wrote.
It’s 2005-the country is booming-Jambons are at an alltime high at €2. That blind opera singer guy is coming to Ireland for a special concert in Cork and tickets are impossible to find. Tony has a fresh tan from the Canaries; Pa is wondering how Liverpool will get on in the Champion’s League and Barry’s got a secret.
Inspired by his time as a painter decorator himself, Shane Casey’s very funny play depicts a day-in-the-life of two painter/ decorators and their boss during the Celtic Tiger era, when anything was possible-at least inside your head.
Also featuring Michael Sands and Tommy Harris
Directed by Patrick Talbot
Saturday October 5th starts @ 8:00pm. €21/ €19 from Box Office/ Tel: 051-874402 or www.theatreroyal.ie
