We’re delighted to announce that Some Flood will then play as part of Collaborations, a festival of new work at Smock Alley Theatre on March 5th & 7th. We went to the launch last night and there’s soooo many exciting debut plays in the programme. It’s going to be a lot of fun and we’re looking forward to showing the play as part of it. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Devious Theatre show without a hometown run and this time we’re returning to our favourite stomping ground of Cleeres Theatre in Kilkenny from March 11th – 15th.
There’s been a bit of swapping around with our originally announced line up for the show and now Eddie Murphy will be performing the play alongside Kevin Mooney while co-writer John Doran takes the directorial reins. The above image sets the tone for our darkly comic survival tale of man against nature. Big thanks to Kasia Kaminska for the epic image and the title design was done by our very own Ken McGuire. The rainy theme will continue in our main poster which will land in the next few weeks.
Want an idea of what to expect with Some Flood? Here’s the details:
The doomsday prophecies were right. Good thing Noah had stocked up on tinned goods.
The wrong man to survive the apocalypse is the only man left in Ireland. Watch him stagger and fumble through a global catastrophe, while attempting to deal with conspiracy and paranoia at a personal level. As he struggles with his own isolation, delusion and neurosis he attempts to define the great pandemic surrounding him. And any other phenomenon’s that he happens to think of. Noah is a danger unto himself. With no one left to help him, what chance does he have?
Tickets are already on sale for the Dublin run and you can book them here. Keep an eye out for an announcement on Kilkenny ticket sales too. As for Cork, you can see us this Saturday as part of the brilliant line up at Quarter!
