Out of Luck: Friday 13th December 7pm

Galway Community Circus is very excited to announce their brand new Christmas show: ‘OUT OF LUCK’! The spectacular performance will take place outside the Galway City Museum at Spanish Arch in the centre of Galway city.

The show will kick off at 7pm and feature new performances from the Tweenies, Moustachios, Seniors and Performance Troupers. Given that this is an outdoor show, our members are taking it as an opportunity to explore the space, make site specific choices and perform without the rigging and set-up of our circus hall or the Black Box theatre. It’s going to be a magical night of thrills and mystery, but as its outside make sure to wrap up well before hand!

Free of charge

3 plans for the weekend






Theatre and Circus

We have to start with the Circus because it is only TODAY (Tuesday, 16th) in the Black Box, at 5 pm and 8 pm. Black Box is part of the Town Hall Theatre so they share the website, you can check all the options throught this link as also the two plays we are presenting are part of the offer of the Town Hall.

The Chinese State Circus presents the show YIN YANG a mix  traditional chinese acrobatics, which origins are in the III century, described as  “The interaction of two energies in a dynamic system of balance”, including shaolin warriors and all kind of acrobatics.

Druid Murphy: Conversations on a Homecoming (Wednesday, Thursday and saturday)  and A whistle in the Dark (tuesday, friday and saturday)

Both plays by Tom Murphy (link to Wikipedia, just in case the name doesn’t ring a bell), A whistle in the Dark tells the story of a family of Irish immigrants in Coventry.

Conversations on a Homecoming  is set entirely in a pub where the characters drink when Michael returns from America and as everyone gets progressively drunker truths are told and souls are bared.

Tickets from 22 euros but there’s also an offer of a combination ticket to see both plays during the week. Check the time and price here
