Venue: Dungarvan Mart
Date: Saturday 21st April
Nonie Stapleton brings her acclaimed one woman show Charolais to the festival, performing her surreal black comedy of love, longing and one woman's intense rivalry with a Charolais heifer in the unique setting of Dungarvan Mart.
Charolais by Nonie Stapleton - "A surreal, black comedy of love, longing and one woman’s intense rivalry with a Charolais heifer. Set on a farm in rural Ireland, Siobhan is forced to share the affections of her farmer boyfriend with the other women in his life – a sneering mother-in-law figure, and a sexy French cow. This is a muddy place of simmering desire, mixing the challenges of farming life and the joy of sex."
After the show, a supper of beef stew will be served by Eunice Power. Dress warmly for this event, and please be advised that there are steep steps at the mart.
In association with:
PRAISE FOR CHAROLAIS:
“Not since Edward Albee’s The Goat or Woody Allen’s Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Too Afraid to Ask), has there been a more complicated, interspecies love triangle.”
"A fast paced, witty, and intensely emotional tale filled with laughter, loss and despair.”
“A Stapleton is a joy to watch…a charming piece of theatre…a truly enjoyable show.”
“All Gallic sexiness, luxuriating in a French accent, and conveying what an unsophisticated Irish girl might not otherwise be able to.”
“A sweet treat…steamy with activity in the cowshed…Charolais is all heart.”
