March Fringe Fuse


A couple of Devious heads will be presenting a rehearsed reading of a work in progress tomorrow night at March Fringe Fuse. This is the third installment of Dublin Fringe Festival’s new monthly scratch night which is described as

‘a brand spanking new monthly scratch night where works of no longer than twenty minutes will be tested out in front of an audience in FRINGE LAB on the last Monday of every month.

And that’s it in a nutshell. Some of our team are looking forward to presenting an extract of a new play by John Morton entitled War Of Attrition. The play was initially developed by John and Angela Barrett during In The Future When All’s Well in 2011 and was presented as a rehearsed reading as part of Play On at the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2012. The play itself is described as a ‘dark comedic thriller about a nasty game of one-upmanship that descends into a relentless war.’ Tomorrow night will see John Doran, John Morton, Roseanna Purcell and Niamh Moroney present part of the in development piece and we’re very excited about getting to test out some new material as part of Fringe Fuse. We attended February Fringe Fuse which was great fun and a really relaxed, informal way of seeing new theatre work in development and being able to have lovely chats about it.


Also presented on the night is ‘HOME inside the Body’ the current dance & theatre solo project by Csilla Nagy / Cipolla Collectiva LIVE ART and ‘The King’s Feet’ by
Louise Melinn and Máirín O Grady, a futuristic satire following the exile of a chiropodist and his hapless brother to the desert (We’ve seen some of it and it’s brilliant).


It all kicks off in Fringe Lab Studio 1 at 7pm tomorrow evening in Dublin and admission is €3 with a refreshment (mmm… beer). Capacity is limited to 40 so people are only let in on a first come first served basis. And you may get ready to take your shoes off too. We hope to see you there.

Especially you Gael Garcia Bernal.
