Foyer Gallery Exhibition

Stephen Price presents
THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

An exhibition of images by photographer STEPHEN PRICE

Stephen Price has been a photographer since the age of ten, when, in those days before instant gratification, he saved his pocket money for over a year to buy his first 110-format camera.

Since then, life has taken him on a hairpin path through the creative industries, from newspaper journalism to radio and television production, into writing books and lecturing. However, all that was purely to pay the bills. His first and enduring love is photography and this is reflected in an exhibition that covers a forty-year timespan, with portraits dating from the 1970s onwards.

We may live in a digital age, but Stephen still largely works with film cameras, mainly because he has never overcome that childhood thrill of getting prints back from the developer, but also because he likes the ‘retro’ feel that film gives; more grain, deeper blacks and a subtle quality to the captured light.

He only works with natural light, because it never occurred to him to buy a flashgun when he was a teenager and he has not learned how to use artificial lighting since. The exhibition title, The Beautiful People, is a play on the notion of fashion glamour. “I have never tried for that glossy, magazine look,” he maintains, “rather for something more uncertain and atmospheric. I never ask my subjects to pose, they just do whatever they want when I point a camera at them. My best shots have been semi-accidental, captured moments when the subject ignored the camera altogether. People are more beautiful when they aren`t trying to be.”

Drama

Riverside Theatre presents
THE THREEFOLD CORD

A new play by Scott Marshall, directed by Des Loughridge

Three very different women share the life of the celebrated barrister Sir Marcus Pennington – Victoria, the successful actress wife; Millicent, the intelligent, self-deprecating PA and Dexie, the vivacious, feisty prostitute.

Each of them reveals their own secrets, with comedy always predominating. Their tales converge at one celebratory moment, as all is finally resolved.

The Riverside is delighted to present another of playwright Scott Marshall’s full-length dramas, which is produced by Belfast director Des Loughridge. Having been successfully staged in Britain, this will be its Irish premiere.

Director Des Loughridge is thrilled to return to UUC, where he made his first stage appearance in "Revue" in Lecture Theatre 1 NUU in 1973!!! His favourite acting roles have been as Jack in Dancing At Lughnasa with Clarence Players and Scrooge in Christmas Carol at the National Concert Hall Dublin. He directed Clarence Players' Taking Sides and Hedda Gabler which both reached the AUDF Finals.

Ulsterman Scott Marshall is a former actor, drama tutor and prizewinning director. He is best known in amateur theatre as an international adjudicator, in a role that has seen him adjudicating no less than 7 British All-Winners Finals, 3 All-Ireland Athlone Finals, 4 British One Act Finals, 3 English Finals and the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish Finals twice each. He was also one of two (the other a Canadian) invited to adjudicate the prestigious World Festival of Amateur Theatre held every four years in Monte Carlo, where 24 countries from 5 continents presented their selected prize-winning plays.

John Taylor presents
ANDY FAIRWEATHER LOW AND THE LOW RIDERS

A big Riverside welcome to this distinguished and very talented ensemble of rock stars

Andy Fairweather Low’s story looks like the perfect example of how to become a legend. He first came to prominence as the lead singer in Amen Corner.

The 60s saw them clock up hit after pop hit. Songs such as 'Bend Me Shape Me', 'Hello Suzy', '( If Paradise is ) Half As Nice' are internationally remembered to this day. But if you were paying close attention you might have picked up a clue in the magnificent ‘Gin House’ to Andy’s future musical collaborations.

Since the early days Andy has gone on to work with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, The Band, Elton John, Roger Waters, Richard and Linda Thompson, Dave Gilmour, The Who, BB King, Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood, Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn, Jimmy Page, Ronnie Lane, Linda Ronstadt, Roddy Frame, Emmylou Harris, Joe Satriani, the Bee Gees, Jeff Beck, The Impressions, Lonnie Donegan, Ringo Starr, Steve Gadd, David Sanborn, Benmont Tench, Warren Zevon, Charlie Watts, Mary J. Blige, Dave Edmunds, Georgie Fame, Bonnie Raitt, Otis Rush, Phil Collins, Van Morrison, Gerry Rafferty, Chris Rea, Buddy Guy, Chris Barber, Jackson Browne, Bill Wyman, Sheryl Crow, Clarence ‘Gatemouth’ Brown, Pete Townshend... and hundreds more.

Now following a solo path, his first solo album in 24 years Sweet Soulful Music was released late in 2007 followed by The Very Best of Andy Fairweather Low which was released in the UK in June 2008 and the Live DVD followed hot on its heels.

A world tour as musical director with Roger Waters band then a European tour with Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings might be difficult to top for most people - but not for Andy Fairweather Low who just segued smoothly into a major solo tour last summer with some of the world’s finest musicians in his band.

Following an acclaimed UK Tour in Autumn 2012 Andy completed a third tour with The Low Riders in Germany.

2013 saw Andy & The band opening the shows on Eric’s European tour headline The Americana Festival and complete their first tour in Japan with 8 shows in Tokyo. Late in October 2014 Andy & The Low Riders played a show at The New Theatre in Cardiff as part of their tour and the show was both filmed and recorded and will be released as a DVD / Double live CD this Spring as 2015 sees the latest new chapter in the story develop.

FREE, PRE-SHOW TALK ON STAGE AT 7.15pm DELIVERED BY ULSTER UNIVERSITY ACADEMIC DR KEVIN DE ORNELLAS

Drama

Riverside Theatre presents
A CHIP IN THE SUGAR and A LADY OF LETTERS

A double-bill of TALKING HEADS from GB's master-playwright and comedian Alan Bennett

A double-bill of Bennett’s series of Talking Heads, originally created for television by the author.

Valerie Bray stars in the role of Irene Ruddock, created by Patricia Routledge. The Lady of Letters of the title is a single, middle-aged woman living near Bradford and who is not afraid to speak, or rather to write, her mind. She frequently contacts her MP, the police, the chemist - everyone she can, by letter, to remedy the social ills she sees around her. And just occasionally, she gets things horribly, horribly wrong. Watch for the shock ending…….

In A Chip in the Sugar, Jeremy Lewis performs the role created on television by Alan Bennett himself of middle-aged Graham Whittaker, who finds his life becoming increasingly complicated as his mother or 'Mam', Vera Whittaker, with whom he still lives, unexpectedly reunites with a dubious old flame named Frank Turnbull. And Mr Turnbull suddenly becomes a real threat to the uneasy domesticity of their family relationship……….

PRE-SHOW TALK

Dr.Kevin De Ornellas is well known to Riverside regulars, as he is the Theatre’s principal deliverer of pre-show talks.

Kevin gained his doctorate from Queen's University Belfast and currently lectures on Renaissance Literature and Renaissance Drama at the University of Ulster and has been delivering pre-show talks regularly in Riverside over the last nine years.

His engaging style and obvious passion for the history, development and practice of Theatre have resulted in him pre-performance speaking in here on writers as diverse as Shakespeare [Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream], Brian Friel [Making History], Harold Pinter [The Caretaker], Sean O'Casey [Juno and the Paycock], Peter Shaffer [Equus], Frank McGuinness [The Factory Girls], Shelagh Delaney [A Taste of Honey], Willy Russell [Blood Brothers] and many others.

Kevin publicly interviewed one of Ireland's most significant playwrights, Professor Frank McGuinness, on stage prior to a performance of McGuinness's translation of Ibsen's GHOSTS.

Kevin also interviewed Ulster University Chancellor JAMES NESBITT and the BBC's MARK CARRUTHERS in a public event in Riverside during Riverside's 35th Anniversary celebrations.

McClarty, Mairs & Gardiner Productions presents
STONES IN HIS POCKETS

The enormously popular play by Ulster writer MARIE JONES

Stones In His Pockets is a tragicomedy about a small rural town in Ireland where many of the townspeople are extras in a Hollywood film.

The play centres around two friends, Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, who are employed as extras on the film. Charlie has aspirations to get his script made into a movie. Jake has recently returned from New York and is mesmerized, along with everyone else, by the star of the movie, Caroline.

Caroline is a famous, beautiful American movie star who fails to ever successfully conquer the Irish accent. Caroline and the other American crewmembers do not attempt to accurately portray the town and people and only care about finishing the movie on time. Most of the locals are initially excited at the opportunity to be a part of a major film and distracted by the novelty.

However, as the film continues they begin to feel abused and the glamour begins to wear off.

Local actors Alan and Colin McClarty perform all 15 characters of the play, male and female.

Family Musical

Portrush Music Society presents
THE ADDAMS FAMILY MUSICAL

Portrush Music Society's pre-Halloween blockbuster musical for all the family

The Addams Family is a musical comedy with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa.

It features an original story based around the familiar ghoulish characters of Gomez, his wife Morticia, their children Wednesday and Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandma, and Lurch, who live together in a rickety Gothic mansion in the middle of Central Park in New York.

The curtain goes up as the whole family, past and present, assembles in the graveyard under the Addams Family Tree. Wednesday confides to Gomez that she has fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable Ohio family – Lucas Beineke.

Fearing the consequences of this relationship, spanning as it does two contrasting backgrounds, she begs him not to tell her mother. Gomez has never before deceived his beloved wife Morticia, but agrees to keep the secret, with disastrous results. Fester, who himself has been smitten by love, enlists the support of the ancestors to help sort the whole thing out.

Everything will change for the Addams family and the Beinekes on the fateful night that they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents Mal and Alice who also, it is revealed, have their own relationship difficulties to reconcile.

TICKET PRICES RANGE FROM £13 TO £19.50 WITH CONCESSIONS AVAILABLE FOR MATINEE PERFORMANCES AND THE TUESDAY NIGHT SHOW.
