The Glens Centre writers group, The Pig Executive, are doing a cabaret style evening in the Glens this Saturday, April 21.
In addition to hosting well known and popular artists, The Glens Centre in Manorhamilton also plays a role as an incubator of new work and new talent. The Pig Executive, a co-operative of writers under the tutelage of Dermot Healy, is one such initiative. Last year, they performed extracts of Healy’s acclaimed novel Long Time No See. They’ve also appeared at the Flat Lakes Festival, the Electric Picnic, their members have had their work performed at the Dublin Fringe, and have been published by The Stinging Fly literary journal.
Now the Executive present Pigaret an evening of light hearted music, madcap drama, and entertaining literature which arrives at The Glens Centre this Saturday at 8.30pm. The seating will be cafe-style, with hors d’ouvres included in the ticket price.
“The cafe-style seating has proven very popular for creating an intimate and informal atmosphere,” said Anna Legge of The Glens. “Some performances benefit from not being on stage as such, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the Pigs can do with it.”
While you are enjoying your drinks from the bar and the hors d’ouvres, you’ll be treated to the premier of Couch, a zany one-act drama about love, jealousy and home furnishings. There will also be work from Executive members David Cameron, Sorcha Fox, Blaithin Gallagher, Jo Holmwood, Conor MacManus, and Isobel Munday.
Tickets are w10 (conc w8). Bookings: 071 9855833.
