POP Ella Eyre

Academy, Dublin 9pm ¤19.90 thea­cade­my­ Hotly tipped? Com­pared to Bey­oncé? Yikes – 20-year- old Ella McMa­hon (pic­tured) may not have time on her side, but she cer­tainly has song­writ­ing tal­ent. This is the first time we have the op­por­tu­nity to see the singer up close and per­sonal, with­out the safety net of a sum­mer fes­ti­val line-up. So, you know, im­press us, if you don’t mind. TCL

THE­ATRE De­fender of the Faith

Li­nen­hall Arts Cen­tre, Mayo 8pm The canny Gal­way-based tour­ing company Deca­dent The­atre re­turn with a new pro­duc­tion of Love/Hate cre­ator Stu­art Carolan’s de­but play. It’s more than sched­ul­ing op­por­tunism. Set on an Ar­magh farm in the 1980s, where a men­ac­ing vis­i­tor from the Provos ar­rives to find a fam­ily en­trenched in paramil­i­tarism, the play com­bines a fam­ily drama and psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller with dis­creet echoes of Greek tragedy. Di­rec­tor An­drew Flynn notches up the ten­sion as they at­tempt to root out a po­lice in­former in their midst. PC
