THURS­DAY 18.12.14

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - THE TICKET - Lau­rence Mackin PC

To­day is the last chance to get your­self round the Dublin Flea and Block T’s an­nual Christ­mas Cracker mar­ket. There are more than 100 stalls of lo­cal de­sign­ers, art, craft, sec­ond-hand and vin­tage fur­ni­ture from which to pluck the per­fect present. Strike fear in their hearts by adopt­ing an ef­fec­tive Ca­van ac­cent. No­body knows how to drive down a price like those Bor­der-county boyos. HOUSE Kerri Chandler de­vel­ops be­tween a char­ity worker, an on­line scourge and a home­less guy, and it dis­in­te­grates just as quickly, with hi­lar­i­ous per­for­mances from John Do­ran, Roseanna Pur­cell and its writer John Mor­ton (be­low). All are given sup­ple di­rec­tion by Ni­amh Moroney. MAR­KET MU­SIC I Have A Tribe, Hi­lary Woods, Big­gles Flys Again Get your Christ­mas shop­ping pol­ished off (or, in our case, started) and scratch your live mu­sic itches in one fell stroke tonight and on Tues­day at the old firesta­tion Mart in Rath­mines. The main room will host a Christ­mas mar­ket sell­ing crafty goods and arty pieces (we think this is code for “Christ­mas pup­pies” but can’t be sure), while its back room will host a trio of per­for­mances from Pa­trick O’Leary’s I Have A Tribe, Hi­lary Woods, fresh from her Tiger Dublin Fringe show, and Big­gles Flys Again, made up of co-pi­lots Conor Deasy and Jethro Pick­ett.
