Two plays for the price of one!

21 Sep

For our autumn production we’re giving you two plays for the price of one. You can’t say fairer than that.

Tickets are €14 (€2 of that goes to the Tickets.ie people) and you get both plays for that price.

Tickets are on sale here.

Our home is T@36 which is on Parnell Square and the show starts at 7.30pm each night, Tuesday 2nd to Saturday 6th October 2012.

For any of you that haven’t been before, the Teacher’s Club is a lovely place – small theatre downstairs and a really nice bar on the first floor for drinks before the show / at the interval / afterwards (or all three if you like!)

If you know anyone who might enjoy the plays please share the details with them.

Thanks!!!

“Couch” by Síofra Campbell
Directed by Emily Maher

Two women, one couch. The battle lines have been drawn between Leah and Rachel, who are finding their feet in Dublin, living the apartment-life and (mostly) loving it. Leah has a couch and as soon as Rachel sees it, she has to have it.

“Would you exchange your two-seater couch for your next-door neighbour’s boyfriend? Síofra Campbell’s 50-minute play is literally a sitcom, with most of the action taking place on a couch in the one-bedroom apartment of Leah, who’s too easygoing for her own good. She’s no match for her neighbour Rachel, who has fixed her glassy stare on that couch and won’t be fobbed off.” The Irish Times

In this fast-moving roller-coaster of a play, nobody is who they seem. Over the course of this short play, the two actors bring you into the intimate world of Rachel, Leah and the significant people in their lives. Who will win out and get the couch? To find out, come to this cool comedy of intimate ruthlessness and barter, love and desire, anxiety and home furnishings.

“The Drowning Room” by Verity-Alicia Mavenawitz
Directed by Noel McCarthy

Sean, a young gay man, has been murdered; his killers have, for the most part, got away with their crime. One year to the day, high in the Dublin mountains, Sean’s friends gather to scatter his ashes and discuss the injustice of it all… but who is the stranger lurking nearby?

“Challenging the notion that the “war is over” in Ireland, Verity-Alicia Mavenawitz’s The Drowning Roomconsiders the consequences that arise when a gay Dubliner is kicked to death by a group of young men. Her play also shows that the gap between rich and poor can sometimes be much wider than the gap between gay and straight, male and female, or young and old in this country.” Irish Theatre Magazine
