One of the Rebel city’s most beautiful venues, The Everyman makes going to the theatre feel like that bit more of an occasion. Back open as of last week, the iconic Cork theatre has just announced an exciting calendar of live events for the coming weeks.

Highlighting the exceptional theatrical talent Cork has to offer, The Everyman is proud to present a series of rehearsed readings, comedy and music opening on October 15. Heralding a new digital direction for the theatre, all shows will be available to stream live through audio broadcast thanks to the new Play It By Ear programme.

Flying the flag for local theatre-makers, the stage will come alive with productions of The Whiteheaded Boy and The Four Faced Liar – both directed by Ger Fitzgibbon – while the final rehearsed reading will be the darkly chilling play The Seafarer, by Conor McPherson, directed by John McCarthy.

Music lovers are also in luck as there are two spectacular live shows to look forward to – one an audience with Majella Cullagh, one of Ireland’s foremost sopranos, who will perform songs from the golden age of musical theatre, the other Feeling Good with Karen Underwood and John O’Brien which promises to be a night of heart-warming, roof-raising jazz, soul, and blues.

Other standout events include In One Eye Out The Other, acclaimed Irish comedian Tadhg Hickey’s part theatre, part stand-up comedy show which was the most nominated show at Dublin Fringe Awards 2019. Old favourites will also return with Aidan Dooley reprising his role in Tom Crean – Antarctic Explorer.

Commenting that current restrictions are ‘not viable to maintain in the long term’, Sean Kelly, Executive Director of the theatre, advised that some productions will be reduced in scale, while others will be reimagined to fit the new experience of live events.

Tickets for all upcoming shows are on sale as of today via The Everyman website.
