8pm, Busker Browne's: Two documentaries, Mike Casey's Clown Around Lesotho and Dieter Auner's Leaving Transylvania, will be shown in Busker Browne's. Free

Clown Around Lesotho
follows three clowns from Clowns Without Borders Ireland, including Galway's Jonathan Gunning, as they travel across the HIV-ravaged Kingdom of Lesotho, performing to thousands of children.

Leaving Transylvania documents the exodus of the Transylvanian Saxons from Romania in the early 90s, an emigration that wiped out villages and endangered the 8oo years old cultural heritage. The film shows the disorientation of elderly Saxon couples from the village Arbegen, charging this documentary with intense emotion and bringing a little-known story to life.

8.30pm, Bank of Ireland Theatre, NUI Galway: The Company presents its play Duael. "One Room, One War, Two Soldiers. One Empire dying, One Empire rising. When all is said and done, what's done is done". (Mon-Wed 8.30pm) 5 euro
