We’re celebrating the arrival of summer by releasing some video of our summer set production of Smitten by John Morton. The play itself takes place over a rain sodden summer in Kilkenny so we earnestly hope we can avoid another miserable summer this year. But considering our 2008 and 2011 summer productions of Smitten took place during some miserably rainy summers, we’ve already given up hope. On May 1st.
This is the first video we’ve released from the romantic semi musical comedy and it shows off one of the many song and/or dance interludes from the play. This one, from the 2011 production, is a homage to the ‘All I Do Is Dream Of You’ sequence from Singing In The Rain with nowhere near the amount of co-ordination of Debbie Reynolds and her chums. Have a look!
Smitten was produced as part of our In The Future When All’s Well residency in Kilkenny Arts Office in 2011. It was directed by Angela Barrett and John Morton with choreography from Gemma Grant.
Smitten first opened in Cork on June 16th 2011 at Solstice as part of the Cork Midsummer Festival. It then marked the conclusion of Devious Theatre’s Kilkenny Arts Office residency when it played No. 76 John Street from June 26th — July 2nd.
