Padraic McIntyre as Kenneth McCallister in A Night In November

Football one man show for Mullingar Arts Centre

Marie Jones’ Broadway hit A Night In November comes to the Mullingar Arts Centre this February.

Brought to life by Ramor Theatre, A Night In November directed by Paddy Farrelly and starring Padraic McIntyre is a monodrama about one man’s struggle with national identity during The Troubles in Northern Ireland.

When Ulster Protestant Kenneth McCallister finds himself on the football terraces for a crucial Northern Ireland versus Republic of Ireland World Cup qualifying match, little does he know that his humdrum life is about to change forever.

This production of Marie Jones’ smash-hit, one-man show features Padraic McIntyre playing the part of Kenneth, a Protestant dole clerk on a search for his own identity.

As Kenneth deals with his crisis through a series of monologues and soliloquies we meet numerous other characters all played by the one actor.

Jones’ enduringly humorous and challenging play is both uncomfortable and compelling as it lays bare the issues of Northern Irish identity in the 1990s. This passionate and often hilarious play has been enjoyed by audiences all over the world including the West End and Broadway. Contains strong language.

A Night In November comes to the Mullingar Arts Centre on February 7. Tickets are priced at €15/€12 and are available from the arts centre on (044 ) 9347777.
