Award-winning new Irish theatre comes to the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Thursday March 3, in the form of Charolais, playwright and actor Noni Stapleton’s quirky, charming, and often hilarious one-woman show
Charolais is an age-old tale of female rivalry with a new twist: the other woman is a cow, a literal one, a purebred Charolais heifer. Siobhan’s boyfriend is a farmer who devotes considerable attention to his prize heifer at the expense of his very pregnant girlfriend. Siobhan has developed a homicidal jealousy for this Charolais and is feeling equally murderous towards her snobbish soon-to-be mother in law. A dark comedy of love and longing, the show is suitable for ages 14 years and up and contains mild sexual references.
"Noni Stapleton’s hilarious take on rural life and love is a paradox: superficially crude, it’s full of wisdom and tenderness, and manages to throw in a fair sprinkling of compassion and forgiveness along the way.” - Sunday Independent.
Charolais takes place at the Linenhall on Thursday March 3 at 8pm. Booking for this performance is advised. Call (094 ) 9023733 to make a booking, or reserve tickets online at www.thelinenhall.com
