Aron Hegarty as the black-eyed blackguard, Corry Kinchela, relishes Kinchela’s pantomime, over-the-top, cartoon villainy, delivering a sharp, focused performance showing hints of a Jim Carrey-like genius at times.
Frontline client Aron Hegarty is busy with Candlelit Tales this month… and next! He was in the Harbour Bar Bray on Wednesday the 3rd July and will be performing next in a SOLD OUT Stag’s Head show on 10th July #soldout. But dont worry, if you dont manage to see him in Dublin this month, you can catch him in Whelans in August!
Three members of the Frontline team will be treading the boards this week in Smock Alley Theatre’s production of Dion Boucicault’s Irish classic The Shaugraun.
Aron Hegarty plays the unscrupulous Kinchella with Juliette Crosbie and Jack Mullarkey playing brother and sister Robert and Claire Ffolliott.
A comic caper with lots of heart and adventure, The Shaughraun runs from 31st July to 1st September in Smock Alley Theatre. You can grab your tickets right here.
Here’s a look at the trailer for the show.
