The 2011 American drama by Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn and starring Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston and Albert Brooks has already been labelled a classic.

A simple recap of its story will probably leave you unenthralled, as, in its broadest outlines, Drive is but another modern neo-noir with a tough, taciturn hero (a stunt driver by day and a getaway driver by night) caught in a moral conundrum with some very bad men.

However the propulsive nature of the film and the twists and turns of the storyline will leave the viewer in no doubt that this is a visceral entertainment of the highest order. Don’t miss it!

The Gingerbread Man And Peek And Boo features at the Nenagh Arts Centre on Saturday, May 12th - 2.30pm and 4pm (duration 45 minutes). Admission: E5. For group rates please call 067 34400.

In this rendition of the age-old tale. Miriam bakes the Gingerbreadman, but the freshly-baked biscuit makes a break for it, eluding the hungry grasp of everyoneuntil he meets a very clever fox.

Peek and Boo open the performance by guiding the children through the tale of a little girl who pays a visit to the home of an adorable baby bear!

Devised, written and performed by Miriam Lambert this gentle, captivating performance takes place on two levels where even though the puppeteer is visible, the magic, experienced by young and old, never fades.
