And that’s a wrap on our Devious 10 programme marking a decade of us making theatre that can be described as somewhat devious. Thanks so very much to everyone who came to support the three plays we produced this year. A special thanks to our venues, the Kilkenny threesome of Cleeres Theatre, The Watergate Theatre […]

So, we’ve finally done it. We’ve gone and opened our latest show, Dario Fo’s Accidental Death Of An Anarchist, at the Set Theatre in Kilkenny. We opened last night which means today, we’re a little bit more relaxed. I’ve never seen a group of people try to do so much in one day as we […]

Chalking The Line…

It’s been nearly 10 weeks of rehearsal on Accidental Death Of An Anarchist, far longer than we’ve done on any production previously. But then again, no previous productions have required such physicality from the performers and demanded such a high standard of performance. It’s our smallest ever cast and our biggest amount of both text […]

It’s hard to believe that we’re nearly 2 months into production on Accidental Death Of An Anarchist and this is the first time I’ve gotten to write anything. So much for regular blogging. I’m kind of hoping to do another few of these in the next week or two just to give an insight into […]

And we cannot wait to bring this one to the stage. Written in 1970, Accidental Death Of An Anarchist was inspired by events that took place in Italy in […]
