Upcoming events for June at Nenagh Arts Centre

Face The Short Kick Out – Friday 14th June, 8pm, Tickets: €15.00 / € 12.00 (Group Bookings Available – Contact the Box Office for details)

Face the Short Kick Out is a power packed piece of drama laced with rich earthy humour throughout. There are few, if any, families who don’t have some connection with the G.A.A, either on or off the field. It’s from here that Richard Lynch cuts deep into the heart of the Association, the Club, with his new play. It’s one that digs deep into G.A.A. passions, written in his own unique style.

A split within a G.A.A. Club in the 1950’s leads to the formation of a second Club in the parish. A bitter father and son conflict relating to the infamous ‘Ban’ on foreign games ensues. As the Club prepare to celebrate the opening of their new State of the Art Clubhouse, Sonny Halpin, now in his sixties, lays bare much of the Club’s history in an effort to bury the ghosts of the past that continually haunt him.


Cruinniú Na nÓg – Pollination Station – Saturday 15th June, 2pm – 5.30pm, Tickets: FREE (Booking Essential)

Join us for an afternoon of workshops, tastings and acrobatic performance at our Cruinniu na nOg event Pollination Station.

Help us create an extra-large bee & flower collage, learn how to create a mini habitat for solitary bees or how to make a wildflower seed bomb to throw in your garden. Tiermoyle Beekeeping will be here for the afternoon to show us some of their amazing products and let us have a taste of natural honey. Finally, finish off the afternoon with Cikada, a new circus show that fuses high level of acrobatics with moments of hilarity that blur the lines between human and nature.

Irish Chamber Orchestra featuring Barry McGovern “Testimony” – Wednesday 26th June, 8pm, Tickets: €26.00

In Testimony, the ICO reflects on the life of Dmitri Shostakovich in Russia, his relationship with Josef Stalin and with peers Aleksandr Glazunov, Sergei Prokofiev and Igor Stravinksy.

Premiering at Nenagh Arts Centre, this fascinating piece of music theatre captures the powerful memoirs of an ailing Shostakovich, dictated to a young Russian musicologist, Solomon Volkov. First published in 1979, TESTIMONY was an international bestseller and remains an astonishingly divisive read.

Barry McGovern, one of Ireland’s most skilled and experienced actors, has had a long career in theatre, film, television and radio. He delivers extracts from Testimony interspersed with music by Russian greats including Shostakovich, Glazunov, Prokfiev and Stravinksy.
