So, we’re off and running! Out to sea, if you please. So far, it’s been good sailing too. Dublin’s great, the weather is great, Smock Alley is a smashing place and after two performance nights so far, we’ve been enjoying great chats with audience members about the show.
The feedback from audiences has been fantastic and people have really been enjoying the comically physical performances from Kevin Mooney and Eddie Murphy as they portray typical young Irish males in a situation that they have never been prepared for: the end of the world.
Here’s what the reviewers have been saying:
“Tight choreography and high nervous energy and reverberation make this blackly comic harbinger of disaster at its most unprepared something to behold.” – yelp.ie
“Doran (who also directs) makes them pointedly ridiculous, practising kung fu and porn fantasies in their boxer shorts, while giving this diagnosis of male fecklessness some imaginative sequences.” – The Irish Times
“Devious Theatre Company are making large strides in providing intriguing, quirky and funny theatre. Some Flood is no different and is a great addition to the Tiger Dublin Fringe calendar. Theatre like this is what the Fringe is all about. Light-hearted, entertaining, and funny. What’s not to like?” – The Public Review (Ireland)
“They give truly impressively athletic performances comprised of fake punching flurries, action hero grimaces, swimming, and exuberant calisthenics…. This is a goofy, vivacious show, which puts you in the corner with its excessive fake punches.” – Meg.ie
If you’ve been to the show, we’d love to hear what you think of it. You can tweet @devioustheatre, find us in the Smock Alley bar after the show each night or drop us an email to email@example.com with your thoughts.
