Prague Fringe Festival 2010

Kavárna 3+1

Be in good company with Nora Connolly and her poetry. She’ll take you with to the West of Ireland – along with Dandy the Rooster, Drunken Fairies, The Madwoman of Cork and Dan McGrew. If there’s any time left to spare she may even get to tell you about The Dogs on the Roof.

Nora trained at The Abbey Theatre, Dublin, Ireland.  She took her James Joyce Bloomsday Event and Going West !!! to The Liverpool City of Culture 2008 Irish Festival.

Her most recent theatre work includes playing the cantankerous mother Mags Folan in Martin McDonagh’s THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE at The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh.

She loves words, loves performing and is thrilled to be in Prague for this festival.


Pragues eagerly awaited annual marathon of theatre, dance, comedy
and music from around the globe bursts to life on May 28th for 9 days.

The Prague Fringe Festival, now in its 9th year attracts a growing
band of visitors from overseas as well as being increasingly popular
with Czech audiences. The event creates a great international atmosphere
where those on holiday can mix with locals and enjoy an eclectic mix of
high quality and reasonably priced non-elitist theatrical

This exciting event offers 40 different shows with over 200
performances and is a mini and more manageable version of the mighty
world famous Edinburgh Fringe. Its cheaper too with tickets priced at
around a third cheaper than the Edinburgh shows.

All productions are in English, Czech or are non-verbal and are
programmed so that you can see up to 5 shows a day or dip in and out as
you please. Shows take place from the afternoon to late evening, most
last for an hour or so with time between to zip from venue to venue and
grab a bite to eat, or even pop back to your hotel for a freshen-up.
