And that’s a wrap on our Devious 10 programme marking a decade of us making theatre that can be described as somewhat devious.

‘I don’t even stop to think this through’ Our final poster from bash: latterday plays is of Ken McGuire playing the part of John in a gaggle of saints, directed by Annette O’Shea. In a gaggle of saints, a young Mormon couple tell the story of a romantic weekend in New York in duologue form. […]
Continuing and concluding our season of Dario Fo works, we returned to the Set Theatre in Kilkenny once more to present Fo's Can't Pay? Won't Pay! again calling on the commedia style of Accidental Death Of An Anarchist. The show ran five nights at Set Theatre, playing to a capacity crowd across the weekend.
Accidental Death Of An Anarchist, the first part of our Dario Fo season of works, took to the stage at Set Theatre in December 2009. As a theatre company, we were the first to utilise the award-winning venue for a full-scale theatrical performance, the venue having opened for the Kilkenny Arts Festival of that year. Accidental Death' would be followed up by Fo's Can't Pay? Won't Pay! in March of 2010.
This was our flagship production, first performed in August 2006, the play looks at five couples through five decades (60s to present day) and how their lives and relationships are impacted by and relate to music at a given point in time. A romantic comedy at heart, the five couples are all from different backgrounds, each relationship with different outcomes, reflected by the music of the particular scene. The show opened August 22nd in Cleere’s Theatre in Kilkenny for a three night run before returning by popular demand in 2007 for an extended four night run, June 27th to June 30th and playing the Rockfall Festival in October of that year.
