Children’s Theatre: The Summer I Robbed a Bank at the Everyman

8 - 16 Jun 2024 (Past)

The Everyman, 15 MacCurtain Street, Victorian Quarter, Cork

The Everyman is proud to present the premiere of The Summer I Robbed a Bank as part of Cork Midsummer Festival.

12-year-old Rex has to spend his summer holidays on Achill Island and he doesn’t quite know what to make of this mad place and its wacky characters. Little does he know his holiday is about to get a whole lot more exciting: his eccentric Uncle Derm is hatching his most hare-brained plan.

This colourful, hilarious play, adapted by Mark Doherty from David O’Doherty’s award-winning children’s book, runs from Saturday 8 June to Sunday 16 June and is perfect for ages 7 and up. Performances Sunday 16 June at 2pm will have both audio-description with a touch tour and ISL interpretation. There will be an ISL-interpreted performance Wednesday 12 June at 11am for schools.

Audio-described performance and touch tour

Live verbal commentary on the visual elements of a production will be broadcast through a headset for those who need it. A touch tour before the show is also available. Bríd Ní Ghruagáin will facilitate at this performance.

To book your tickets, headset for the audio-described performance and place on the touch tour, email access@everymancork.com, or call 021 450 1780. Places are limited so early booking is advised.

ISL-interpreted performance
