THE Limerick Arts Encounter programme is in full swing now, with several exciting productions starting this week and more to come.

Well known actor Norma Lowney brings the very interesting sounding The Boneyard Man to life this Friday night as part of the Arts Encounter programme, which has dispersed money earmarked for the now defunct Belltable directly to theatre groups in the city.

The result sees producer-director Lowney - a member of the Choke Comedy Troupe - bring the novel piece to Dr John’s on Thomas Street over the next four weeks - starting Friday and running for the next three Thursdays.

A zany parody of 1930s and 40s radio, the piece will come in the form of two half hour episodes, performed by some of the best in local talent, including Kevin Kiely, Darren Maher and Karen Fitzgibbon - all joining Lowney on stage, while musician David Irwin provides accompaniment.

Come along and you will laugh - guaranteed - at the brilliant verbal twists and mock mayhem from this, crackerjack crew of Limerick impresarios.

Tickets €10/8 and are available on 061-774774 or 061-319866.
