AODÁN FOX is to star in a one-man muse production hitting Shannon this month.
Muse Productions are returning to the Shannon stage this month with a piece of theatre titled ‘A Night in November’ running from September 15th to 17th.
Written by Marie Jones of ‘Stones in His Pockets’ fame, ‘A Night in November’ follows Kenneth Norman McCallister, a Protestant dole clerk working in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He has “cleanly discriminated” against Catholics throughout his life, and indeed he gains much pleasure when he gets accepted into the golf club ahead of his Catholic boss.
This continues until he witnesses the hatred directed towards the Catholic supporters of the Republic of Ireland at a 1994 FIFA World Cup qualifying game against Northern Ireland which causes him to question his beliefs and his identity as a British Protestant in Northern Ireland. The play shows how Kenneth deals with his identity crisis through monologues and soliloquies as well as introducing numerous other characters for Kenneth to interact with, all played by the one actor, the multiple award winning Aodán Fox.
Well known to Shannon audiences for his many roles with Shannon Musical Society, Aodán has also performed with Icarus Drama Group and more recently with Muse Productions.
This role is a tour de force performance by Aodán who plays multiple roles of all ages and sexes, from Kenneth’s kids, to his wife, her father, their friends and many more besides.
Directed by Ted Germaine, the production is a treat for all ages, although some of the themes may be too mature for very young children.
Muse are delighted to be back once again in Hope Café, where they previously performed ‘The Crucible’, and more recently ‘Love, Loss and What I Wore’ and ‘Closer than Ever’. The production is sponsored by Shannon Springs Hotel and Ei Electronics.
Tickets are €10 and are available from the new Online Booking System at https://www.ticketsource.eu/muse [ticketsource.eu], by phone at (087) 413 6822 and on the door provided it is not a sell-out.
