A sung story of everyday courage written and performed by Catherine Ireton

Bride-to-be Claire is not going to make a speech at her wedding. No way. She’s just not that type of person. But what if being timid is a good thing? What if being scared is just you starting
an adventure? And so it is that a morning’s outing to the shops turns into a 24-hour odyssey where our heroine-in-pyjamas tries to locate her brave bone.

A new solo performance of songs and spoken word from Catherine Ireton exploring small acts of courage and how they can be as contagious as fear.

In Good Hands

Take a seat, would you like a cup of tea, a magazine while you're waiting? Don't worry - you're In Good Hands, a small hair salon on the Ennis Road in Co. Clare where people come for the cut and stay for the chats.  

In Good Hands is an interactive show inspired by the world of hairdressers - of secrets, trust and our human need to share and connect.

Taking place in a working hair salon a small audience are invited to their ‘appointment’ at this rural Irish salon where hairdresser Julie (Catherine Ireton) makes them feel very much at home while Lisa (Grace Kiely) is getting her hair done for a big night out. Over the next 60 minutes – the time it takes for a wash, cut and blowdry - the small dramas of the lives of Lisa and others of Ballybracken unfold around us. Through a series of original songs and involving the audience to help us tell the story In Good Hands explores the important things we tell complete strangers given the opportunity.

For all the fires not yet lit: Work in Progress

"Stories can conquer fear, you know. They make the heart bigger."

Claire Lyons’s fiancé doesn’t think she should make a speech at their wedding reception, neither does her mother. And yesterday she stayed swimming in the slow lane, despite her legs wanting to push her faster. And so it is that a morning outing to get some milk turns into an odyssey of minute proportions where small risks have big consequences and timid Claire surprises herself and others. Over the next 24 hours our unsuspecting heroine goes on a protest, makes friends with a shoplifter, ends up in a prison cell and wakes with a very different view of what is or isn’t possible.

Interwoven with small, tender and mighty stories of everyday bravery For all the fires not yet lit is a clarion call to be brave in an age in which we are constantly told to be fearful. 
Because courage, like fear, can be contagious.
