The Six Marys – Whale Theatre, Greystones – 8pm SOLD OUT

**To join the waiting list: https://whaletheatre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873582231/ **

Back by popular demand, the wonderful The Six Marys returns to the Whale Theatre after 3 sell out shows.

This one-woman-show presented by Jean Farrell and directed by Joe McCarrick is a comical yet poignant look at life, from childhood in the 1950s to the present day.

It draws very much on the influence of religion as taught by the nuns – preparing young Irish Catholic schoolgirls to imitate the virtues of the Virgin Mary. The Six Marys are fun-loving girlfriends, who grow into practical, everyday housewives. The light-hearted atmosphere helps us concentrate on their journeys through the decades delivering all kinds of sharp and comical observations. Jean Farrell has plenty to say about the teenage pursuit of Mr Wonderful followed by the reality of married life, teenage children and growing waistlines.

Tickets €15 or €12 concessions. For booking: https://whaletheatre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873582231/

Mothers Day Concert – Music from the Movies by The Degani Ensemble – Whale Theatre, Greystones – 4pm

The concert highlights include Stanley Myers unforgettable ‘Cavatina’, from ‘The Deer Hunter’, music by Ennio Morricone, the evocative ‘Gabriel’s Oboe’ from ‘The Mission’, and Nino Rota’s theme from ‘The Godfather’. No concert of music from the movies would be complete without John Williams, and his violin solo from ‘Schindler’s List’ will be performed, along with another great modern violin solo ‘Ladies in Lavender’ by Nigel Hess.
