Joyride Town Hall Theatre Time: 19:00 BUY

12-year-old Mully has lost his mother and discovers his debt-ridden father stealing the charity money they’ve raised in her name. Grabbing the cash, Mully steals a taxi and is shocked to find a woman, Joy, in the back seat with a baby. Joy, a straight-talking solicitor who didn’t expect to get pregnant, is struggling with motherhood and is planning to give her baby to a friend who will raise the child as her own. She joins Mully on a wild journey across Ireland, stealing cars, hitch-hiking, catching ferries and breaking police barricades. Mully’s father is in hot pursuit, and Joy is desperate to escape and leave her life behind. These two outlaws gradually bond, discovering that both felt unloved by their parents, yet both have a lot of love to give. Together, they find a happier way to journey through life – and find love in each other.

Shame//Less Town Hall Theatre Time: 22:00 BUY
Shame:Less

From award-winning theatre and performance maker Stefan Fae, Shame//Less is an artistic response to the findings of “Culture and Sexual Risk: An Ethnographic Analysis of Gay Male ‘Sexual Worlds’ in Ireland Today.” Shot in Dublin’s iconic Boilerhouse sauna, Shame//Less transports the viewer on a kaleidoscopic cruise through Dublin’s queer underbelly. The film invites you to peer through the glory hole of post-marriage equality Dublin and see if you like it like that. Does that feel good? How about there? Careful now, you might even enjoy it.
