And… we’re back!
A year since we last trod on a stage, Devious Theatre return with an exciting new project that should serve as a tasty appetiser for our next full production.
Little Deviations: Volume 1 is a scratch night showcasing five new works in progress that Devious Theatre have been developing over the past year. Each of these new plays will be previewed, tasted, tested, rehearsed, read, sampled and performed, all in 20 minute chunks for your viewing pleasure!
We’ll be returning to our birthplace, stomping ground and spiritual home of Cleeres Theatre for two performances only on August 2nd and 3rd at 8pm nightly.
The five plays in question are as follows:
Girls In Africa by John Kennedy. Mary and Sally want to raise money to undertake charity work in Africa. The easy part? Fundraising. The hard part? Surviving Africa. John Morton directs the cast of Hazel Doyle, Adrian Kavanagh and Aoibhín Murphy.
Tenterhooks by John Morton. Eddie Murphy directs Leah Egan and Jack Nolan in this darkly comic fairytale set in a variety of suicide and accident blackspots.
The Union by Adrian Kavanagh. A comedy about missing money and chronic hangovers in a sweltering hot students union. Alex Christle directs the cast of Alan Doyle, Peter McGann and Colin O’Brien.
The Hellfire Squad by Peter McGann & John Morton. Michael Collins wants to set up his own personal hit squad to fight the Brits. But this mission needs some real men. Philip Brennan directs the line up of himself, Richie Cody, Stephen Colfer, Ken McGuire, Niall Morrissey and Annette O’Shea.
Some Flood by John Doran and Kevin Mooney. When a Biblical flood wipes out Ireland, one man takes to his roof to survive. This will be performed and directed by the writers themselves.
We’re very excited to have such an outrageously talented team, scratch that, FIVE teams, working on this show! If you’ve been a fan of our work over the years, you’re going to love this. If this is your first time seeing us in action, these are the perfect little starters!
The new plays that make up Little Deviations are works that we hope to produce over the next few years. This will be your first chance to see them performed and it will also prove an invaluable opportunity for the writers to road test the material in front of an audience. Also, props to Paddy Dunne for his sterling poster work on this. Five little beauties the lot of them and all nicely summing up the plays we’ve been brewing.
The funds raised from Little Deviations will go towards the making of our new work. Tickets for the shows are €10 and are limited to 120. With only two performances scheduled, this one will sell fast so make sure you get your tickets as quick as possible!
