We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Ciara Donegan. Ciara worked with us with back in 2009 on our production of Stags and Hens in which she played the role of Bernie. She played a blinder in the part, leading the charge of the ‘hens’ on stage and was a huge part […]

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 Stags and Hens has been and gone at this stage, off on its honeymoon, in advance of our upcoming production of Dario Fo’s Accidental Death of an Anarchist.

The music is fading out and the seats are empty. Stags and Hens is in the rear view mirror. Saturday was the final night of the production. The celebrations went into the wee hours of Sunday morning but were much curtailed compared to previous productions thanks to our early start on Sunday to empty the show […]

You’ll Never Walk Alone

It’s been a great week. Fact. Looking at the show with a producer’s hat on and an actor’s hat on, it really been a great week for us. The show has gone down surprisingly well, last night bringing yet another completely different (and slightly older) audience, further highlighting different opportunities for comedy throughout the script.

Some of us have worked on every production, some made their debuts late last year, others have just joined us since June. As a group, it was a new gathering of people, getting familiar with each other, trying on the […]

Earlier this morning, Kevin Mooney (director), Ciara Donegan (Bernadette) and Mairead Kiernan (Maureen) made an appearance on The Sue Nunn Show on KCLR96FM in advance of tonight’s curtain-raising performance of Stags and Hens. There might well be some scandal to listen to. Or at least, our Liverpudlian accents. We open the show tonight at the Watergate […]

Taking It To The Theatre

So we’re finally in the Watergate Theatre! It always creeps up so quick. Note to self – get the wifi access for the theatre tomorrow as the O2 connection is quite rusty in the main theatre area. We’ve been on the go since 9:15am, starting things in Devious style with a breakfast at The Field […]
