This summer the Theatre Royal will produce two short masterpieces by one of Ireland's greatest writers, Samuel Beckett.

Footfalls, performed by Waterford actress Carrie Crowley, is a moving and poetic distillation of the relationship of a mother and daughter evoked by two voices as a figure paces on stage.

Carrie Crowley will play May in Samual Beckett’s Footfalls

Krapp's Last Tape, performed by Irish actor and writer Arthur Riordan, is a moving and beautiful evocation of human failure. 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.

Arthur Riordan will play Krapp in Samual Beckett’s Krapps Last Tape

Directed by Ben Barnes, Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal, the plays will preview from Wednesday 21st June, 8pm, all tickets €12

This is one of those rare Hollywood movies, a film that can totally sustain your interest over its entire running time. It does help somewhat that the movie only runs for an hour and a half but it's a lesson that other Hollywood movies could learn a lesson from and that is to cut their running times. Films should be an enjoyment not an endurance test. That being said this film does have a lot of other good things going for it not least the storyline which is all about a contract killer who for some reason goes back on the contract and instead of killing the young woman in question actually goes out of his way to help her and in the process bring down his boss. The boss lives in a huge stately pile where he

New Kildare label 045 Recordings bring their standout talent Cinema to Waterford's Gallery of Modern Art alongside Waiting Space on Saturday 27 May from 9pm.

Electronic artist Cinema quietly released his debut album of bright, Balearic and luminescent instrumental electronic music in 2016.

Featuring music of a slow-disco tempo, the album opens with ‘Time Traveller’, goes from guitar ambiance into Scandinavian cosmic styles on ‘Night Train’, meanders into pinging vocal-featuring house of a slow variety on ‘Need You Next To Me’, delves into nine minutes of synth-lead meandering on ‘Lunar’ and arrives with full-bodied propulsion with a bod towards EDM zeitgeist sounds on the virtual string conclusion of ‘Always’.

Waiting Space is the music and video project, and alias of Chris Falconer - a musician, and art historian. As 'Waiting Space', he combines vocals, programming, live-instrumentation, graphics, and video for each release under

One of the families is hard working and devout and the other licentious and profligate and it was exactly these two opposites that Zola wanted to see which would win out depending on circumstances and personality.

One of these novels, The Meth's Drinkers dealt with parents who despite their best efforts slowly descend into alcoholism when times get tough. Germainal deals with their son who lives a straight, moral life
