Double the fun at Riverbank - 2 for €20 offer

Have twice the fun, save money and maybe try something new with a special 2 for €20 offer at Riverbank Arts Centre.

Next week Riverbank is crammed with entertainment - a comic farce, excellent music and a heart-warming theatre- who could ask for more.

On Tuesday 12th October beat the recession blues with some comic therapy in Low Pay? Don’t Pay! This is an uproarious brand new 2010 version, by Dario Fo himself of his frenetic 1974 farce, "Can't Pay? Won't Pay."  Housewives, Antonia and Margherita, fed up with high prices in the supermarket, take matters into their own hands and start shoplifting. Keen to keep their light-fingered antics from their husbands, Giovanni and Luigi - not to mention the police - the women are forced to resort to more and more inventive hiding places and more and more elaborate cover stories. You won’t want to miss this uplifting and legendary comedy.

On Wednesday night try something new and brace yourself for a few bombshells as Greg Felton’s trio go head to head with the incomparable vocalist Isa Wiss. Tipped as a major star of the future, Wiss is one of those musicians who defies description; her remarkable technique and three-octave range make her a truly free improviser who can switch from stuttering gasps and cries to honeyed tones in a single phrase. Greg Felton is the perfect foil for Wiss’ vocal acrobatics, hailed in the Irish Times as “the most gifted young pianist on the scene”, this will be a nice gig for musicians and music lovers alike.

Finally, this week of non-stop entertainment will wrap up with a heart-warming production of Tuesdays with Morrie. Based on the best-selling book by Mitch Albom. this beautiful play tells the story of a professor and a student who meet after sixteen years. When the student, Mitch, discovers that his much loved tutor, Morrie, is suffering from a terminal illness,  they begin to spend Tuesdays together and Mitch learns the lessons of life and death from Morrie. Directed by John McDwyer and featuring Michael Roper and Pat Feeley, Tuesdays with Morrie is a warm, funny, compassionate and life enhancing evening of theatre. An unmissable production from Beezneez Theatre Company.

Three great shows in a row. Take your pick and be entertained on the double at Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge. For further details on these shows visit or to avail of this special 2 for €20 offer call 045 448327
