Jarlath Regan: Organ Freeman

A standup show from the creator of multi-million downloaded Irishman Abroad podcast, about life and death, give and take, Ant and Dec, youth and young manhood, getting it wrong while getting it right and never worrying about anything ever again.

Organ Freeman is Jarlath’s ninth solo show and by far his biggest to date. Fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe (Named in The Independent’s Top 20 Jokes Of The Fringe). You may know Jarlath Regan from such television shows as Tonight At The Palladium (ITV), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC), Standup Central (Comedy Central), Last Comic Standing (NBC) and Goggle Box (Channel 4). As recommended by Ardal O’Hanlon, Marc Maron, Jack Whitehall, Jason Byrne, The Times, The Telegragh, The Guardian and Tripadvisor.

Alex Smith: Real Man

Alex Smith returns for a third year after two packed-out Fringe runs. After spending 28 years being told he isn’t one, Alex has set out to figure out exactly what constitutes a “real man”. Alex tried out breaking the law, ingratiating himself with tribal rights of passage and even endured a totally unnecessary colonic, all just so he could write a new hour. Alex has written for HuffingtonPost.com, Immediate Media and RockNRollBride.com.

Alex has appeared on The Chris Ramsey Show, Live at the Electric and Virgin Media’s Edinburgh Comedy Binge.

Opera Anywhere returns to The Players Theatre with two of G & S’s most popular operettas – The Pirates of Penzance and HMS Pinafore.

In Pirates of Penzance an unfortunate case of mishearing initiates the plot resulting in a dramatic change for of direction for Frederic who sets course to become a ‘pirate’ instead of a ‘pilot’. The twists and turns of this classic operetta unfold with ingenious characters, sublime lyrics and some of the best-known songs in opera.

HMS Pinafore is a tale of mismatched love across different social classes. Josephine is the captain’s daughter and has fallen for lowly sailor, Ralph. Yet her father has other ideas – he has promised her to Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty. Will love prevail? Climb aboard to find out and enjoy a feast of fun along the way.

Opera Anywhere is fast building a reputation for excellent opera at reasonable prices. Two performances not to be missed.
