Lucia’s Chapters by Mabou Mines

It’s like Christmas Eve in here at the moment!

The Kilkenny Arts Festival is kicking off tomorrow and the theatre programme will be taking a bow with Lucia’s Chapters by Mabou Mines. And yes, are we excited.

Having last appeared at the festival in 2006 with Prelude To A Death In Venice, the renowned avant garde group are returning to Kilkenny with their acclaimed new show. Lucia’s Chapters looks at the remarkably tortured life of James Joyce’s daughter Lucia. Lucia is played by Ruth Maleczech in what is said to be a remarkable performance.


The show is currently moving into the Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny in anticipation of its opening night bow tomorrow.  It runs until Tuesday August 11th at 8pm nightly.  We’ll be heading along tomorrow night to cover the show for the Kilkenny Arts Festival. Ken McGuire and John Morton from this parish will be blogging, reviewing and recapping the events of the festival over at KilkennyArts.ie over the next 10 days so check in for coverage of what will hopefully be a rain free festival!

And keep one eye on this website also as we’ll be featuring the theatre programme throughout the entire run of the festival. Keep an eye out for the Keystone Kops too! They’ll be running around like mad, the rogues. There’s a wealth of variety that should do a nice job of keeping all theatre goers happy over the next 10 days.
