Blood in the Alley Theatre Company in association with Cork County Council are pleased to announce the first ever Spring Fit-up Theatre Festival in West Cork from March 4 to 15 inclusive. While the hugely successful Summer Fit-up Festival enters its seventh season in July, this is a new departure for the company.

The Fit-up Programme is always exciting and the Spring programme is no exception opening on March 4 in Kilcrohane Community Hall with the hugely popular Pat Kinevane in his new show ‘Underneath’. West Cork audiences will remember Pat, who seems to have an almost cult-like following in the area, for his stunning performances in ‘Silent’ (Edinburgh Fringe First) and ‘Forgotten’.

Following the runaway international success of Forgotten and Silent, Fishamble presents Pat Kinevane’s third solo play, ‘Underneath’, directed by Jim Culleton. This stunning new play is a blackly comic, rich and vivid tale of a life lived in secret, a testament to the people who live on the fringes, under the nose of everyday life. It explores the surface, and what lies underneath and promises to provide audiences with another captivating, moving and unforgettable theatrical journey in the hands of a master.

The second week of the festival opens on March 11 in Glengarriff Community Hall with ‘Postscript’ by Noelle Brown and Michelle Forbes. The play is performed by Noelle Brown and Brid Ni Neachtain, two superb actors who have both worked with Blood in the Alley in the past. Noelle Brown was adopted at birth and her play is based on her real search for her identity, which provides a gentle, sad, funny and delightful evening of theatre.

The plays will be performed in Ballydehob, Heir Island, Bere Island, Kilcrohane, Glengarriff and Lisavaird during the Festival, so check the website for details of when they are coming to a venue near you on www.westcorkfit-up.com. Blood in the Alley are the company who bring top class professional productions to places that other companies can’t reach and no doubt the Festival will continue to do so for some time. Tickets are €10/12 and only available at the door. Please check ferry times for island shows.
