With Fionula Linehan as the Hairdresser
Directed and Designed by Jack Healy.
The Hairdresser’s Calendar is back after a sell-out premier at Cork Arts Theatre in July of 2019. Perhaps it’s time again for the quiet (and sometimes not so quiet) wisdom of the Hairdresser who knows life in terms of what every head needs as the world moves from one rite of passage to the next!!
But for her, it’s all about the mother of the bride (or MOB!!) as she tries to set the world to rights by shaping the only thing she has any real control over, someone else’s hair!
In a space that’s too small for her with two phones too many, making appointments in an old empty diary from a previous year that she can’t see the point of throwing out (“if you just go by the date and ignore the day…..) she plays out the magic of transformation in the only way that she can, in a world where most people feel stuck most of
But sooner or later it must, by necessity, be her own turn to sit in the ‘magic chair’ and take a look in the mirror….. and then there’s that text from her sister-in-law in Malaga… who hopes to visit….. today!!!!!
