Autumn Season 2020 Purchase Tickets
 

Covid 19 Update

On the 6th of October the Irish Government implemented level 3 restrictions across the state. Under level 3 indoor theatre-based events are not permitted. This means that we have to cancel some of the films planned for this season and that our Autumn Season will not begin until 29th of October at the earliest.

A decision on this will be taken and announced here nearer that date. In the meantime we will be contacting all those who have already bought tickets in order to arrange a refund.

Jesus is a hairdresser who helps out at a nightclub showcasing drag performers. He lives a pretty desperate existence. His mother died years ago, and he hasn’t seen his father since he was a toddler. Jesus knows that his financial opportunities are limited, and he can see a future as a hustler, like some of his other pals in the neighborhood. Matters take a melodramatic turn when Jesus’ father Angel newly released from prison, appears one night at the nightclub and decides to move into his son’s cramped apartment. The macho Angel, a former boxer, is appalled by his son’s homosexuality and tries to squelch his ambition to perform in drag. While the film’s bittersweet conclusion isn’t hard to see coming, it still packs an emotional wallop.
