A drive-in Theatre is coming to Kinsale as part of the town’s arts weekend which takes place from Friday, July 10.

Run by theatrical events company RSVP, the 45-minute outdoor performance consists of two plays and a monologue which the audience can view from the safety of their own vehicles.

Writer-director Yvonne Coughlan said she is excited to be premiering three new plays at Kinsale Arts Weekend during what is “a challenging time in the landscape of theatre history”.

Ms Coughlan who is busy with voluntary duties as the Chair of the Board of Directors at Firkin Crane Theatre, and Cork South West Co-ordinator for the National Campaign for the Arts, said she is “delighted” to have the opportunity to engage with Kinsale Arts Weekend.

“With so many events cancelled and theatres closed this is an exciting adaptation to the times we live in. RSVP and KAW ensure compliances not only for the physical health and safety of our audiences, but also in support of mental health through the creation and sharing of theatre and engagement in the arts,” she said.

The show begins exploring life’s philosophical meanderings through 6 minutes to Wonderland. Unfinished Portrait explores the passions of love lost and finally, hope conquers fear in the monologue performance With Love.

The performance will take place at Saile, Kinsale Sports and Community Centre grounds in line with government guidelines.

No toilet facilities are provided at the venue.

Tickets are priced at €20 per car plus a booking fee on

Ticket holders are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to the event to park and pedestrians cannot gain access to the venue.
