‘Pure Mule’ Playwright brings ‘Eden’ to Nenagh

‘Eden’ – an award winning play from ‘Pure Mule’ writer Eugene O’Brien is brought to Nenagh Arts Centre at 8 p.m. on Thursday 25th November.

The hard-hitting play for adults is presented by Rain, Rocks and Reeks Theatre Company  and portrays the disintegration of the marriage between Billy and Breda Farrell. Billy, (Paul Mekitarian) though a doting father, spends his time drinking, enviously watching the lives of his single friends, while secretly lusting over a younger woman, Imelda Egan. The long suffering and frustrated Breda (Hazel McLynn) yearns for the romance lost from her marriage and pins all her hopes of reconciliation on one big night. Mac’s late bar is the venue where both characters pursue their opposing goals with the inevitable outcome.

In its everyday simplicity, hilarious storytelling and colloquial language, ‘Eden’ is a must see. Tickets are available online on www.nenagharts.com or by calling the Arts Centre in Banba Square on 067 34900

Italian Cinema classic ‘The Leopard’ at Nenagh Arts Centre

The epic 1963 Italian film ‘The Leopard’ screens at 7.30 p.m. on Thursday 2nd December in Nenagh Arts Centre.

The film by director Luchino Visconti tells the story of the changes wrought by the battle for Italian independence in the mid-19th Century. Burt Lancaster stars as a Sicilian Prince who realises that he must compromise his ideals in order to protect his family and his estate into the future.


The arrival of the vivacious Claudia Cardinale, a lower class merchant’s daughter, to marry his son offers him the opportunity to safeguard his house by making a pact with her wealthy family.

The film, epic in scope and grandeur, is similar in many ways to ‘Gone With the Wind’ as the sweep of history passes over a family, changing them utterly. The film closes with what is regarded as one of the great scenes in cinema history, the famous ballroom scene, with sumptuous sets and costume encapsulating the now-fading world of the Prince for one last time.

Patrons should note that the film is just over three hours long and has subtitles. Booking in advance from the Arts Centre on 067 34900. Tickets are €6
