Sandbox (Garter Lane, Waterford) - Stage Mad Productions

I've seen a few productions by Stage Mad and in particular this director, James Power is excellent. Their next production is called Sandbox and stars an actor, Brian Quinn, who has taught many a top workshop with the Boards Drama Group.

In Sandbox, three American soldiers find themselves caught in the no man’s land of “Ambush Alley”, near the border of Iraq and Syria. Ted McClain and Jason Platt are fast tracking soldiers, looking for action and quick promotions. They convince Ramona Valdez to join them in an attempt to capture a supposed insurgent near the Syrian border, while also lining their pockets with anything they can steal. After a firefight goes horribly wrong, the wounded three find themselves trapped with Hassan, a suicide bomber, determined to kill himself and the infidels who have invaded his country. Sandbox is the story of young people at war, prisoners of their situation as well as their own beliefs. This play is running during the Imagine Arts Festival.

The Caretaker - New show from 1984 - One Week ONLY

1984 return with a new production of Harold Pinter's The Caretaker, one of the truly great plays of the 20th Century.
A young man, Aston, brings a vagrant, Davies, back to the West London house he maintains for his brother, Mick, a builder with ambitions to transform the place. Mick is initially disturbed by this intrusion, but eventually offers Davies the position of "caretaker", both of the house and of his disturbed brother.
From the simple premise of three men jostling for control of one room, Pinter fashions a vividly realised microcosm of the world outside, and shows the ways in which people deceive themselves and each other, offering us absurdist comedy along the way.
This production reunites director Pat Burke with actors Ed Jackson and Des Slowey from last year's successful production of Copenhagen, and is not to be missed.
It runs:

Tues. 13th to Sat. 17th October, 8 pm at
T@36 (The Teachers' Club), Parnell Sq.
Tickets are €15/11 conc.
Bookings are on 0871423160

Press Release – 13 October 2009

Dublin Youth Theatre presents Half 3 Heroes
A brand new specially commissioned play for Dublin Youth Theatre by Sarah & Steve (RTÉ 2) co-writer and star Emmet Kirwan
Monday 26th – Saturday 31st October 2009, 8.15pm, Project Cube, Project Arts Centre, 39 East Essex Street, Dublin 1

13 October 2009; Dublin Youth Theatre (DYT) were delighted to confirm today that they will be back in Project Arts Centre for their new show, Half 3 Heroes from 26th – 31st October 2009. Half 3 Heroes takes you into the near future, into the world, thoughts, chats and slags of a group of teenagers, thrown together by changes in a turbulent education system, as they try to come to terms with their own identity as well as the rapidly changing societal identity of a new ‘Ireland.’

Emmet Kirwan, a former member of DYT, worked closely with the youth theatre members to produce a script that would provide a true representation of the voices and experiences of young people in Ireland. Kirwan wanted to remain true to their experiences and not traditionally perceived ideas associated with teenagers. This is not the first time Kirwan has permeated the language of young people living in Dublin, he also co-wrote with David Coffey (Dan & Becs), the new Accomplice TV/ RTÉ comedy series Sarah & Steve, in which he also plays Steve.

Half 3 Heroes is the first show Willie White has directed during his 3 year tenure as Artistic Director of Dublin Youth Theatre and will be the last performance under his guidance before Gary Keegan (Brokentalkers Theatre Company) takes over the role later this year. For White Half 3 Heroes reinforces the credibility in the belief that the teenage years are the most formative in an individual’s life and that young people have something to teach us about the world we’re creating for them to ultimately sort out. Commenting on the show White said ‘This is a great opportunity to work directly with the members - I’m looking forward to getting really strong performances from the large cast of over twenty’

Peter Pans at D-Light

Peter Pans by 50% Male Experimental Theatre

After a huge success of the preview last weekend, D-light Studios will host 50% Male Experimental Theatre with their performance; ‘Peter Pans’ on the 19, 20, 21, 22 of November.

Choreographed by Anna Gáciarz, Peter Pans explores the syndrome of the same name, a generation of people who don’t want to grow up, who find it difficult to express love. Peter Pans – people with the body of an adult but the mind of a child.

Peter Pans is a combination of physical theatre and contemporary dance theatre technique.

This debut performance by an experimental dance/theatre company, comprises of 3 male and 3 female performers with wildly different back-stories, complimentary skills and a tendency to crack up at tender, ‘sensitive’ moments. They are from Poland and Ireland. They are dancers (and stilt-walkers), office workers and visual artists. The group first got together in February 2009 and found they had an amazing chemistry; their months of work has resulted in this universal tale about a certain generation of people (their generation) who don’t want to grow up; a generation of Peter Pans..

Come over to D-light Studios, Dublin1 and immerse yourself in an amazing spectacle that tells a story we have all have experienced in people we know or, even more so, in ourselves.

Shows start at 8pm sharp and tickets at the price of €10 are available online at and in the box office.

You can check also our facebook page here. And feel free to pass this email on any of your friends.
