Nurses Show the Way – Time for a Living Wage for All

The Nurses and Midwives are in the thick of a major battle to defend and improve our health service, which includes fighting for decent and fair pay for the nurses themselves. All workers should support the nurses in this fight. A victory for them is a victory for us all and will be an example that other workers should follow. We all deserve a living wage and that’s what we should demand in this so-called recovery that skewed massively in favour of the super-rich. Come along to this meeting hosted by Solidarity TD Ruth Coppinger and hear from nurses, teachers and other essential workers who are organising to tackle this inequality.

Where: The Bell Pub, Main Street Blanchardstown, Dublin

When: 7.30pm to 9.30pm

Pericles by William Shakespeare

This new contemporary adaptation at The Lir Academy turns William Shakespeare’s classic tale into a modern-day take on the refugee crisis, in a story of resilience and hope.

When Antiochus, the malign ruler of Syria becomes a threat, Pericles must escape conflict and flee his country, risking his life at sea. In this modern-day adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s Romances, Pericles becomes a refugee, a modern hero. His strength and resilience will be tested by the Gods as he seeks asylum in different lands, meets love, faces loss and is ultimately restored to his rightful place.

Where: The Lir Academy, National Academy of Dramatic Art, Trinity Technology and Enterprise Campus, Pearse Street

When: 7.30pm to 9.30pm

Price: 17€/12€
