Yesterday I modelled for Maria Cribben, a talented artist whom I worked with last year.
The event took place in The Dragon this year. Maria came second place aga7j.
I went to see “Making Lemonade” this evening in The Civic Theatre in Tallaght this evening. This one man show was written and performed by Sylvia Beatley.
It has been a long time since I saw a piece that had me having laughing fits, my eyes watering and heart breaking. To see such a feminine actor as Sylvia play a man believably was mindblowing. The character of Blade is a strong and almost intimidating presence on the stage at times. From the opening few mintues, he grabbed my attention and took me on an adventure in his life for an hour.
It is running until this Saturday and I think this is a show that has to be seen.

On Friday (aka world Klara day), I went into my course and received a cute thoughtful card from my classmates at Artstains and a birthday cake.
In the evening I went to the Bernard Shaw for shisha and cocktails, then karaoke at Uyiko, Sweeneys, followed by Lillie’s Bordello.
On Saturday, Brian took me to see Kodo in The National Concert Hall. I was blown away by the performances.
I don’t know if i have mentioned this before on the blog, I am a student drama facilitator on the Artstrain course (run by N.A.Y.D.). Through this course, I met Sylvia Beatley, a fellow student who is a versatile, talented actor and writer.
Her one woman show, “Making Lemonade”, will open in the Civic Theatre in Tallaght on 5th March, running until the 8th. The show recently had a successful run in Limerick. I am really looking forward to watching it next month. Knowing Sylvia, I am sure this is one edgy, passionate piece of theatre.
Check out the trailer.

As part of its continued and national success, Making Lemonade continues to win over its audiences through its gripping and authentic story line of – A Day in the Life of Gun Crime Culture – Blade continues to pull audiences into his absurd, cruel and yet heartbreaking story of structured dysfunction and survival.
Twisted Peasant dares you to get up close and personal with Making Lemonade, see if you could walk an hour in Blades shoes.
There will be a post show discussion with Tallaght Drugs Task Force and special guest on March 6th. To book a ticket, call the Civic Theatre box office on 01 462 7477.
This afternoon, I will be going to listen to Brian Keary in Sweeneys, on Dame from 4pm. I can’t think of a more relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon, whether one is still drunk from Saturday, hung over or in need of a caffeine fix.
The talented Brian, is my boyfriend but I am in no way biased (he is the best guitarist I and many others have ever heard in Ireland). If you are ever around Dame street on a Sunday, you should drop in and be serenaded in eclectic bohemian coziness and partake in the Mongrel beer.
Here is the latest episode. Be sure to share the weirdness.
