Áine Ryan is set to wow audiences at the Nenagh Arts Centre when Studio Perform Presents ‘Kitty In The Lane’ on Saturday, January 31st at 8pm.
Written and performed by Áine Ryan ‘Kitty in the Lane’ is a two-act drama and is written and performed by the Upperchurch playwright and actor.
Indeed, the content of the show is heavily relevant to the area. Set in Tipperary, ‘Kitty in the Lane’ sneaks behind the scenes of contemporary Ireland to showcase the plight of Kitty, a girl living alone with her elderly father in a backward lane on an isolated hilltop.
Kitty’s brother, Denis, is recently deceased and with her father lying invalid and ailing in bed, the entire workload of farm and house has shifted to a reluctant Kitty.
The action of the play takes place on the eve of the annual village beauty pageant. Kitty’s friend Salisha is hotly tipped to win the tiara and Kitty has gotten Salisha a large gift to celebrate. Kitty is waiting for her boyfriend, Robert, to drive her to the pageant where she will present Salisha with this token.
However, the clock rolls forward quickly and with no contact from Robert, Kitty finds herself panicking about more than a missed pageant.
Áine Ryan is a graduate of Goldsmiths, University of London where she graduated with a BA in Theatre and Performance in June 2013. She completed E20 Writers School with the BBC in 2012.
Tickets are priced at €15 (€12 concession).
