cavan / arts and media / press release Wednesday August 23, 2017 12:44 by P.T.
. “The Cowboys”, written and directed by Peter Trant, is a dramatic and highly entertaining play set in a fictional town somewhere along the border. It tells a complex, darkly humorous tale of love, betrayal and revenge. After many years, away, the protagonist, Bobby Courtney, returns to his hometown for his father’s funeral. Old animosities between him and his nemesis, Johnny Murtagh, the Meat Factory Manager, bubble ominously to the surface. Two Meat Factory Workers, Sonny and Phil, observe it all. At first this duo, with their laugh-out-loud humour, appear to be outside the action, almost like a Greek chorus, but we soon realize that they are, in fact, central to events as they unfold. Behind their banter, oblique clues hint at horrors past and to come. A sense of menace permeates the action right from the beginning and tension builds inexorably as the plot moves to its shocking climax.

The Ramor Theatre Presents

Doubt: A Parable with Peter Trant, Liz O'Hanlon, Emer Sexton & Agnes Efemuai. Directed by Padraig McIntyre

Doubt: A Parable is an exquisite, potent drama that will raise questions and answer none, leaving the audience to grapple with the discomfort of their uncertainties.

The play is set in the fictional St. Nicholas Church School, in the Bronx, during the fall of 1964. There is Father Flynn, a beloved and progressive parish priest. There is the school’s principal, Sister Aloysius, a rigidly conservative nun, who harbours a deep mistrust toward her students, her fellow teachers, and society in general. And there is Naïve and impressionable, Sister James.

Sister Aloysius and Father Flynn are put into direct conflict when she learns from Sister James that the priest met one-on-one with Donald Muller, St. Nicholas’ first African-American student. Mysterious circumstances lead her to believe that sexual misconduct occurred. Aloysius, dissatisfied with Flynn’s explanation, meets with Donald’s mother, Mrs. Muller.

With no actual proof that Father Flynn is or is not innocent, the audience is left with its own doubt.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play 2005.

Admission: €18 & €16 read full story / add a comment

"They would take the eye out of you while smiling at you... They've been reared that way."

Cavan Anglo Celt Newspaper

http://www.anglocelt.ie/news/roundup/articles/2009/12/1...udge/

"It's time the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) got the finger out on these people. They're driving around in jeeps, and the rest of the country on its knees," said Judge MacBride as he dealt with three members of the McDonagh family in Cavan District Court last Thursday. "I'm going to put a stop to it, in so far as I can make my small contribution in my district," said the judge, who spoke of the family "moving like yo-yos" and going to different employment exchanges. read full story / add a comment

Electronic Intifada is reporting : "Obama picks pro-Israel hardliner for top post" whilst Haaratz describing the the choosing as: "Obama kick-starts transition, picks Israeli Rahm Emanuel as chief of staff" http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1034635.html

As Ali Abunimah puts it in his EI article: "During the United States election campaign, racists and pro-Israel hardliners tried to make an issue out of President-elect Barack Obama's middle name, Hussein. Such people might take comfort in another middle name, that of Obama's pick for White House Chief of Staff: Rahm Israel Emanuel ... Rahm Emanuel was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1959, the son of Benjamin Emanuel, a pediatrician who helped smuggle weapons to the Irgun, the Zionist militia of former Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin, in the 1940s. The Irgun carried out numerous terrorist attacks on Palestinian civilians including the bombing of Jerusalem's King David Hotel in 1946. read full story / add a comment

I’ve just spent 3 days at Jampa Ling Buddhist centre 2 miles from Bawnboy in West Cavan. I’d been thinking about going there for over a year, having heard a very favourable account about the place from a friend. Then, due to start out on a new job, I finally decided to make the time and go, to think and meditate, to re-organise my brain and my heart, to re-evaluate my priorities in life. read full story / add a comment
