The Moat Club, Naas, an amateur drama group whose home is the Moat Theatre, is having something of a Brian Friel moment this year and is hosting a trio of Friel-related dramas.
We've already produced Translations (ran from 13th - 17th April) and on 11th May will be staging No Hay to Save in Brooklyn, a piece devised and directed by Anne Mekitarian, which takes some of Friel's female characters and revisits their most important speeches. First presented in 1990, No Hay has succesfully toured the USA, blew the critics away in the 1995 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was part of the Celtic Festival in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1996. No Hay has been revived for the Friel Fest and will run for one night only, Tuesday 11th May at 8pm, in the Moat Club. It's a 90 minute show and there will be a reception afterwards with an opportunity to talk to the director and actors. Tickets (€10) from www.moattheatre.com or 045 883030.
Finally, to end the Friel Fest, we bring you Philadelphia, Here I Come! from Tuesday 15th to Saturday 19th June. Anne Mekitarian will be bringing her substantial experience of interpreting Friel to bear on this delightful play, definitely one of the classics of the Irish canon. Shows at 8pm nightly. Tickets (€15 and €12) from www.moattheatre.com or 045 883030.
If you've already seen our Translations, you can still benefit from the Friel Deal which is all 3 shows for €30. Amazing value, I know!

International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival presents
Written & Directed by Alan Flanagan
Meet Billy Redden. It’s 1971, he’s in his room, and all is (relatively) normal. That is until he’s visited by versions of himself, each from a separate time in his (apparently highly eventful) life. They’re all Billy, they’re all very different people, and they’re all too busy squabbling over how his life should turn out, to care if he should even have a say in it.
Playwright Alan Flanagan takes us on a journey as one boy discovers that in the face of medical marvels, back-stabbing soul mates, moonlighting drag queens, and brow furrowing time travel, being gay in 1971 is the least of his worries.
Billy – Blayne Kelly
Red – Connor Hillman
Will – Killian Sheridan
Miss Kitty – Geoff O’Keeffe
Mr. Redden – Liam Burke
Written & Directed By Alan Flanagan
Produced By Sarah McLaughlin
Set Design By Alex Graham
