LORDS OF STURT have been busy rehearsing their new show Late Night TV Talk Show which will run as part of Cork Midsummer Festival this June.
Your hosts, the talented but idiotic brothers Sean and Seamus, host their own TV show – a dream come true. Of course, it all goes terribly wrong and hilariously right! Through the disaster and tornado of laughs watch a thrilling soap opera descend into the absurd, talking rocks, gags, audience participation and dance routines so flash it could be the 80’s!
They will be sharing some snippets from the show with us this Friday at 6pm at TDC. Come along for a sneak preview…
BrokenCrow Theatre Company have dived into two short stories, Ernestine and Kit and The Wintersongs by award winning author Kevin Barry, to create Dark Kingdom, a theatrical experience that exposes the uncomfortably familiar and the gloriously strange.
Barry’s characters have been described as “flamboyant and malevolent, speaking in a vernacular like no other.” In Dark Kingdom, BrokenCrow Theatre Company strive to put live flesh on the bones of these characters and to create for them a bleakly beautiful world to inhabit, a deliciously vicious version of the Ireland we are all familiar with.
BrokenCrow will be performing this work at The Granary as part of Cork Midsummer Festival and wish to thank both Midsummer and MAKE, a residency in Annaghmakerrig, whose support has made this project possible.
This week’s development sharing will take place on SATURDAY the 9th of April @ 6pm….
The Old Fruitmarket- an off-kilter, dark and comedic family drama that explores memory and consequence.
This is Gavin’s first self-penned play and his first time collaborating with Corcadorca.
