Theatre: Forgotten @ The Mermaid Arts Centre @ Mermaid Arts Centre
Apr 1 @ 20:00 – 21:30

Flor wants to bath himself. Dora wants her chowder now. Gustus wants his house back. Eucharia wants to make an announcement… Forgotten is a solo piece of theatre which reveals the interconnecting stories of four elderly people, living in retirement homes and care facilities around Ireland, who range in age from 80 to 100 years old.

Pat Kinevane is an immensely powerful performer and he brings to life these sometimes forgotten voices of society in a real, hopeful and touching way. The show is toured by the award-winning Fishamble: The New Play Company who are now in their seventh year of touring Forgotten in Ireland and abroad.

‘Flawless performance…aches with life’ – Evening Herald

Theatre: Underneath @ The Mermaid Arts Centre @ The Mermaid Arts Centre
Apr 2 @ 20:00 – 21:30

Sticks and stones didn’t break her bones, but words and pointing crushed her. Is Beauty really only skin deep? Does Ugliness hide somewhere deeper? Following the runaway international success of Forgotten and Silent, Fishamble: The New Play Company presents Pat Kinevane’s third solo play, Underneath, directed by Jim Culleton.

This stunning new play is a blackly comic, rich and vivid tale of a life lived in secret, a testament to the people who live on the fringes, under the nose of everyday life. It explores the surface, and what lies underneath.

Please Note: This show is part of the Mermaid Mix: 3 shows for €33, 4 shows for €40.

Drive In Cinema @ Roundwood @ Roundwood
Apr 3 @ 21:00 – 23:00

Underground Cinema are delighted to be bringing the very successful Drive In Cinema to Roundwood in County Wicklow for the Easter Weekend.  Working alongside Special Ops Paintball Centre both company’s feel that the Drive In Cinema will be a fantastic attraction to the area.  The Drive In is situated right beside the magnificent Vartry Reservoir and is just 15 minutes from Bray, 15 minutes from Greystones and 15 minutes from Kilcoole.

The Drive In Cinema will open on Good Friday with Back to the Future and then on Easter Saturday with Dirty Dancing.
The Drive In Cinema in Roundwood is slightly different to the Drive In Cinema that Underground Cinema operated in Dun Laoghaire.  The Roundwood Drive In operates with outdoor surround sound which means that for future screenings we can include outdoor seating as well as for cars.  We are now in a position to rent the Drive In Cinema out for fund raiser/private screenings.

With unobstructed views across the waters below, this trail is only minutes from the bustling towns of Greystones and Bray but provides a short escape that an evening in April requires.
