Glen Theatre’s Production of “The Cause” Premieres on Friday

The Glen Theatre Drama Group are delighted to announce that we will finally reopen our doors for our Autumn Production which was postponed in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Written by Seán Ó Deadaigh and directed by our own Tadhg O’Keeffe, The Cause depicts the story around the capture of a Black and Tan officer by members of the Cork No. 1 Brigade, Irish Revolutionary Army Captain Seán O’Donoghue and Volunteer Jamesy O’Mahoney during one of the greatest single atrocities of Ireland’s War of Independence – The Burning of Cork.  We thank Marie Burke, P.R.O., The Glen Theatre Drama Group for the excellent background information before the Premiere of “The Cause” this Friday at The Glen Theatre.

 In accordance with Government and HSE Guidelines, Covid-19 protocols will be in place.  People attending future events at The Glen are requested to please wear a mask in conjunction with other measures at the event.

We share some scenes from the upcoming truly powerful production.  (S.R.)

“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 5th Sept. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 5th Sept.

‘The tale of three Norries’ is a series beginning on ‘Where the road takes me’ this Sunday evening.

Basing himself in the North-Mon CBS School, John Greene meets three friends, all of whom attended the school.  All three are Norries to the core, all three are involved in music and all three have an interesting story to tell – not all of which involves music. 

In programme one, we meet singer-songwriter John Neville one of the co-founders of the Cork band North Cregg.

John is now pursuing a solo career and has recorded a song about Sunvalley Drive, where he grew up and ‘The Wobbling Man’, a song about his alcoholic father.

We are also joined by College Lecturer and New York Times opinion writer Jennifer Finney Boylan.

Boylan talks about her time at UCC and how ‘The Wobbling Man’ helped her enormously to take the final steps in her transformation from male to Transgender. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
