Krapps Last Tape performed by Arthur Riordan & Footfalls performed by Carrie Crowley runs for 2 more nights only. These two short masterpieces by one of Ireland's greatest writers, Samuel Beckett have received critical acclaim since opening in June.

FOOTFALLS

Performed by Waterford actress Carrie Crowley, is a moving and poetic distillation of the relationship between a mother and daughter evoked by two voices as a figure paces back and forth on a darkened stage.

KRAPP’S LAST TAPE

Performed by Irish actor and writer Arthur Riordan, this is a moving and beautiful evocation of human failure and despair and is Beckett’s great study in loneliness and isolation. A man sits in what passes as a study, his only company an old reel to reel tape recorder where he listens to recordings of his younger self and prepares to record what may well be his

THE Reg Bar, in association with Summer in the City and ArtBeat, presents one of Ireland’s most promising singer/songwriters, Elmore, who will headline the legendary Churchyard sessions on Saturday, July 22.

Elmore recently supported Michael Bolton of all people at the 3Arena, although many Waterford people probably had a better chance to see him in one of his many busking sessions outside Penneys in Waterford. The busking bug brought him around Europe recently, funded mainly by selling his own CDs. Elmore spent three months moving from city to city before he soon decided to make a more permanent move to Manchester in the UK where he continued busking to pay his way. This experience helped him to develop an organic fan base throughout the UK and Europe who have proven to be a huge support to him when releasing his own

Wonder Woman

From the camp 1970's show to today's big budget special effects monster that this film is Wonder Woman has come a long way. Perhaps not fast enough but then again this is a super hero whose weapon of choice is a small piece of golden string that makes people tell the truth. Not exactly up there with Thor's hammer. But she's here at last and it is quite a good movie, way too long as is normal with these super hero movies but if you don't mind sitting down for a good two and a half hours then it mostly keeps your attention. The film opens up with a detail or two about how Wonder Woman's homeland came into being, the war between the gods of old and a weapon that is to be held by the Amazon's, a

Waterford's very own Happy Robot Productions are delighted to announce their upcoming production of Frank McGuinness's classic Someone Who'll Watch Over Me.

Based on the true story of three hostages held against their will in Lebanon, McGuinness has penned a powerfully dramatic play combining poignancy, tragedy and humour. The characters, an Irishman, an American and an Englishman, at times battle with their cultural differences but their instinct for survival forces them to realise they are stronger together. Their imprisonment compels them to explore the power of imagination to escape the daily fear, despair and boredom; making this a play not to be missed!

Starring Darren Malone, Timothy Fardey and Gerry Kane and directed by Clare Smith. Someone Who'll Watch Over Me will be coming to Central Arts, Waterford from 26th-28th July (www.centralarts.ie or 086 454 3246) and Gealach Gorm Theatre, Kill, Co.

  • OUR VIEW

    Rights & WrongsGiven the ubiquity of the car it is no wonder that any time there is proposed legislation banning certain behaviours that there is some sort of outcry against it. The Cabinet approval of Transport Minister Shane Ross’ ban of three months of anyone registering a 50-80mg alcohol reading is yet another example of people saying that there are too many laws and legislations surrounding driving. The fact remains however that there are still too many people on the road drinking and driving and i …
