Cork City Hall – The Atrium: Shakespeare in the Pods

City Hall - The Atrium

Join us for Shakespeare in the Pods, interactive Performances of Shakespeare’s Greatest Works presented by Cyclone Rep Theatre. Funded through the Local Live Performance Programming Scheme, supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

Celebrate Cork Culture Night with one to one 5-minute performances of Shakespeare in the Pods, featuring selections from Shakespeare’s greatest plays.

Performances will take place in the pods located in the foyer of Cork City Hall. Originally designed for the Covid lockdown the pods get a new lease of life as Cyclone Director Peadar Donohoe and actors Paula McGlinchey, Marcus Bale and Oskar Smith present performances that individual audience members can interact with! Yes, you can choose to ‘Swear Like Shakespeare’, experience ‘Shakespeare Through the Senses’, have a chat with Mercutio of Romeo and Juliet, or receive an empathetic performance when you go ‘On the Couch with Shakespeare.’

Reservations for Performances can only be made on the night, in person, on a first come, first served basis.

Reservations will be taken from 5pm with performances running from 6pm-9pm.
