Galway Theatre Festival continues until this Saturday, showcasing more unique and exciting talent from the performance scene in the West of Ireland.  Following Jérémie Cyr-Cooke’s much-lauded solo show in last year’s Festival, Brick Wall Theatre returns with a warm ensemble performance The Messiness of Human Relationships. Its central character, the Good Gay Gentleman is an innocent, naive creature, too curious for his own good and on a journey to explore and expose the nature of Humans.

Blending text and physical theatre, the Gentleman’s quest is charismatic, intimate and touching, celebrating the ‘messiness’ of love and relationships in all their varied forms.

The Messiness of Human Relationships runs at the Bank of Ireland Theatre, NUIG, until Saturday, May 12. It’s at 6pm on May 10 and at 8pm this Friday and Saturday, May 11 and 12.

Caitríona Ní Chonaola’s Glutened delves deep into the belly of a woman with an unusual and uncomfortable condition. An estimated one per cent of the Irish population suffer from Coeliac disease, but just what does it mean to be ‘glutened’?
