My Friends Are Cooler Than Your Friends – (Why Ya’ll Gagging So? Molly Brings It Every Ball!)

I went to see Serious Money last night at The Lir, with the cool kids from Malaprop Theatre, who sometimes let me eat lunch with them.  It was sexy and great and full of good jokes, fake cocaine and hard, hard rhyming. Director Oonagh Murphy did an amazing job with a tough play about the insider-trading, …

What I Just Saw – Cleite, Black Beauty, Nosferatu at Baboró

The third and final installment of my whirlwind of children's theatre blogging is upon us!  And what a way to end the festival.  Unfortunately for Laika (who will absolutely never read this blog, so won't care) I'm taking my Festival Award For Best In Baboró off Narrow, and giving it to the French sensation that is Bob …

What I Just Saw – Narrow (Nipt), Is This A Dagger? at Baboró

ANNOUNCING NEW WORK – The Lonsdale Project, with Baboró International Arts Festival for Children

I've been relatively quiet since I've been back from NZ, theatrically. I've certainly been posting more about Polyglots and books than my own productions. This hasn't been a dry spell so much as a period of planning and incubation.  Aside from the epic trilingual feat that is Te Rōhi, the influx of drama teaching gigs …

What I Just Saw – The Fever, Dublin Theatre Festival

I've had the Dublin Theatre Festival programme in my room for months, adorned with a post-it saying 'EARLY BOOKING ESSENTIAL'. Yet, did last-month Sian heed her own advice, and grab tickets to The Lost O'Casey? Basic organisational skills would be a fine thing. No heavy hitters from DTF will be appearing on the blog. A …
