THE heart warming Tuesdays with Morrie will kick off the Lime Tree Theatre’s new season next Wednesday.

Marking a year since the sleek, 510-seater state of the art venue opened its doors, the emotional play, written by Mitch Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher and performed by Terry Byrne and Andrew Murray, returns for a two night run next week.

The autobiographical story of Albom, an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor battling Lou Gehrig’s Disease, the play tells of the burgeoning friendship that grows between the two men.

The play already sold out twice in the theatre already, and returns for a two night run this month to mark the start of the Lime Tree’s autumn/winter collection, running next Wednesday and Thursday, September 18-19.

The venue, currently putting the finishing touches to a new bar for customers who attend shows in the theatre, have a busy programme ahead of music, theatre, dance with plenty for children.

In the coming weeks Music Generation Limerick will perform a free gala performance of the acclaimed Lola Montez cabaret for Culture Night on September 20, while Theatre Club present the intriguing play Heroin from September 25-27.

The Kilfenora Céilí Band are back on Sunday, September 29 with their new show Spraoi, a celebration of the Irish at home and abroad in the year of the Gathering.
