    The Arts House Podcast Update: Sell out Production of Katty Barry moves to December opening

    Elmare mawe spoke to writer and director Marion Wyatt about plans to reschedule her production of Katty Barry Queen of the Coal Quay at the Cork Arts Theatre..The first, new, professional production to grace a Cork stage since March 2020
     
    Katty Barry, Queen of The Coal Quay is a new play, with music, from the creator of
    Dockers, Shawlies, When We Were Young and The Sunbeam Girls. The play is a work of fiction based on anecdotes, memories and folklore.
     

     
    This new play, with music, composed by Jimmy Brockie, celebrates the life and times of  Katty Barry. The play was written with the support of Miss Barry’s family.
     
    Katty Barry, who was a legend in her own time, ran an eating house in Dalton’s Avenue,
    just off Cornmarket Street. Katty Barry's was frequented by peers and paupers alike, and all were treated the same,with nightly songs and stories. Katty Barry served alcohol, often late at night, despite having no licence, and being repeatedly fined.
     
    The Cork Examiner described Katty Barry as the personification
    "of a people and a culture peculiar to a particularly colourful and indigenously Cork milieu",
    presiding over bohemian Cork life until the closure of her establishment by the late sixties.
     
    The Irish Times stated that Katty Barry remained
    "elegant, observant, highly intelligent, with a devilish twinkle in her eye
    and the ability to cut people down to size."
     
    Cast
    Rachel O’Connell, Angela Newman, Pearse O’Donoghue, Judy Donovan and Jimmy Brockie.

    Shane O Driscoll Ardú

    I don't know about you but I was stopped from scribbling on the wall when I was small. Make it large-scale enough, though, and people get excited about it!! There's a brand new Street Art Festival in Cork called Ardú and Shane O Driscoll is the first artist to be given a whole street to paint. I caught him for a chat during a break in painting.
