"It's kinda like that show Lost or something, only way more annoying because at least in Lost you know that if you download another episode, you’ll find out exactly what’s going on."
"You don’t see Tom Hanks wondering what happened his plane in Castaway or what happened to Wilson after he got washed away."
"I suppose people like Bear Gyrlls or Tom Hanks or Crocodile Dundee are sexy because they do things like survival so they seem all tough. Rugged, like..."

This is as devious as we get...
We are once more delighted to be part of Out For The Weekend, Kilkenny's annual Pride festival. This coming Saturday August 23rd in Brewery Corner we'll be presenting Secret Movie Read. A secret movie classic gets performed by a secret cast at 8pm. You won't find out what the movie is or who the cast are until you're in your seat. Yes, it's extremely sneaky but we hope that we've earned the goodwill to warrant paying to see something that you have no idea about. But we promise, we will make your 90 minute non cinematic experience a script read like no other. So come along, grab a drink and allow us to entertain you.
The idea comes from a similar night filmmaker Jason Reitman occasionally runs in Hollywood. But unlike his script reads we absolutely guarantee our cast are not famous.
8pm kick off upstairs in Brewery Corner, it's €5 entry on the door, seating is limited and popcorn is provided. The audience may* be required to participate, get rowdy and shout along. *will most definitely
Join us for a very, very, devious evening! For more info on the festival, check out the website
We've just unveiled a brand new poster for Some Flood
set aboard an all too vulnerable looking boat.
A whole lot of Kevin Mooney
and Eddie Murphy's
try and manfully steer themselves through the storm as their search for life after flood gets more and more difficult. The image was shot by Kasia Kaminska
with design from Ken McGuire
The clothes are off and we're back in rehearsals this week as the show gets ready to board the good boat Tiger Dublin Fringe
from 6th - 12th September
in Smock Alley Theatre
. Get on board by grabbing yourself a ticket right here
We're starting to run out of nautical metaphors and with three weeks to go it's starting to worry us...
Apart from Some Flood
, there's another show from erstwhile Deviants hitting the stage at this years Dublin Fringe Festival
is presenting his first one man show The Centre Of The Universe
as part of this years Show In A Bag
line up from Fringe, Fishamble
and the Irish Theatre Institute
. It's got a lot of comedy, a lot of life and a lot of things you don't consider because you're not in a cult. John Morton
will be directing the show and Moses Moorhouse
will be providing the score.
The show centres around a presentation from John. Not John the actor, but John, the cult of personality. Cults are normally a pretty bad idea. But not this one. He wants you to join him.
The Centre Of The Universe
runs throughout the festival in Bewleys Cafe Theatre
. If you want to book tickets you can ger the details
on it here. Please do book and come along and let yourself get brainwashed. Join them...
You need to stay alert. Focus the mind and body because you never know when you're going to need to put on a show in a festival, right?
Good thing we're in show shape because Some Flood
has just been unveiled as one of the shows at this years Tiger Dublin Fringe
. The festival launched in Tiger soaked style on Tuesday night and we were delighted to be there (also soaking up Tiger). We were even more delighted when we saw the fantastic company we're in. It's a bumper line up for Kris Nelson's
first year at the festival and we're immensely excited to be part of it. After the success of our Fringe debut War Of Attrition
at last years festival, it's great to get the opportunity to build on that with a new and very devious show about one man's attempt to survive a flood that has wiped out most of the world.

who joins a team consisting of John Doran
(Writer/Director), Kevin Mooney

We're about to take a Devious Theatre show up north of the country for the first time and we really couldn't think of a better town, festival and spot. We have the terrifying pleasure of being the opening show at the inaugural Cavan Theatre Festival
and Kevin Mooney's
apocalyptic comedy Some Flood

It's a huge honour to be part of such a great programme and we're really excited about opening it up. We're aiming to start things with a splash and we're looking forward to soaking up the buzz in Cavan on the day. It's our first time there so we may as well enjoy our trip to Gonzo

Or table quiz, if you're into the whole brevity thing.
This Thursday night in Billy Byrnes Bar
on John Street we'll be presenting our second ever Great Big Devious Table Game of General Knowledge Show!
It's the first of our fundraising endeavours for this years upcoming work. Last years quiz was a roaring success and featured much controversy and drink fuelled shouting in equal measure. So hopefully we'll have more of the same this year!
You can test your knowledge on matters music, film, TV, World Cup, local history and loads more over 10 rounds. And yes, there is a theatre round.
Guaranteed to be much more craic and a much worthier cause than England vs Uruguay on the same night (though you might be able to catch a glimpse of it in the bar and *hope* that it inspires your World Cup knowledge)
€20 per team of four, spot prizes and raffle prizes on the night as well as something sweet for the overall winners.
Register in advance online at http://devioustheatre.com/tablequiz or turn up early on the night. Let's call it 8pm for an 8.30pm start. Get thee to studying now!
