The Non Stop Connolly Show was a legendary theatre work in 1970s Ireland that visited the life and work of 1916 hero James Connolly in a mould–breaking political drama by John Arden and Margaretta D’Arcy. To mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising Galway legend Margaretta D’Arcy will lead a special Culture Night re–imagining of the work, in the company of a like–minded troupe of radical western performers inclosing Galway icon Mary Coughlan. The evening takes place in the Claddagh Arts Centre, a remarkable cottage that encapsulates all of Claddagh history, just outside Galway’s great walls.
