Be My Love in the Rain – Charity Performances
You could do worse this weekend than treat yourself to the brilliant Be My Love in the Rain. I saw this one woman show earlier this year and really loved it. Written by Paul Kennedy and performed by the terrific Linda Teehan, it is an exciting new Irish play set in contemporary Dublin that explores issues around love, loss and mental illness.
Fire & Ice Theatre Company are proud to present two benefit performances of Be My Love in the Rain with all proceeds going to the cancer ward at St. Luke’s. The two performance evenings will take place at 8pm on the 22nd and 23rd of October in the United Arts Club, 3 Upper Fitzwilliam St., Dublin 2. There will be no cover charge but guests will have the option of donating whatever amount they wish to the cause.
It’s a girl’s night out
Janet and her friends are drinking and dancing in a night club, eyeing up the talent. Janet has a brief encounter with a dark brooding stranger. His name is Michael. Love happens and she is swept off her feet. When his dark past comes back to haunt him, he leads her on a downward spiral into a world she could never have imagined. She becomes his accomplice in crime and struggles with the implications of the bad things they do.
Be My Love in the Rain is a play about love and loss. About people trying to hold their lives together under desperate circumstances. It is both tragic and funny and Teehan’s Janet creates a world that is at once strikingly real and tenderly poetic.
Try get along to see this play. I can vouch for it. Linda Teehan is so moving. It’s impossible to take your eyes off her for the whole play. You can reserve tickets through email@example.com or can just show up. On top of everything else, it’s for a great cause, so any help you can give them will be greatly appreciated.
