Devious 10 And Done

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 […]

The Darker Side Of Devious Theatre

The following is the Kilkenny People review of Bash by Tess Felder. It was published online on 19th October. It was a pleasant surprise to turn up to a horror-tinged play to find warm, cushioned seats in Cleere’s Theatre on Tuesday evening, but such is the star treatment to be expected from Devious Theatre Company […]

Bash: What The Audience Are Saying

AT TIME OF writing we’re about 9 hours away from lights up on the third night of bash: latterday plays at Cleere’s Theatre. The past two nights have been fantastic – both for us as performers and from an audience reaction point of view, particularly to a body of work that is rather heavy and […]

Our production of bash: latterday plays by Neil LaBute opens tonight in Cleeres Theatre. After a whirlwind couple of weeks of rehearsals we’ve arrived here in Cleeres Theatre to open up proceedings. We’ve been teching all morning, sorting out the seats and testing our soundscape. It’s all coming together really well and as an added […]

‘I put heavy things on my audiences. I love it.’ Neil LaBute, February 2011. And that’s probably why we love Neil LaBute. He was one of the writers who was on our mind when we formed the company in 2006. We would sit outside the Marble City Tea Rooms (and then the Coffee Club when […]

‘The looser the better on this one I figure, so bottoms up, or whatever they say at the bar these days’ – iphigenia in orem by Neil LaBute. That’s all we’re asking. That you sit and listen to these three stories. And if you need to loosen up, then by all means loosen up. bash: […]

Medea Redux

Annette O’Shea last played the lead role of Claire in Smitten. Here, she talks about how she came across Medea Redux and what the part means to her. In a strange way, my rehearsal for this play began about four years ago. I am sure he has long forgotten but back in 2008, in my […]

A Gaggle Of Saints

Amy Dunne plays Sue in A Gaggle Of Saints. Here she talks about the challenges of a duologue and her love of LaBute. I had always hoped Devious would to a Neil LaBute play. I read The Shape of Things about seven years ago and so began my love for this playwright. I made it […]

One Half Of A Gaggle

Ken McGuire last appeared for us in Smitten. Here, like John, he writes about his relationship with a gaggle of saints, American accents and the lucky charm that is a tuxedo. This one is ticking a few boxes for me. First off, it allows us to mark bash off our list of things to do […]
