Welcome to the Theatre Development Centre

The Theatre Development Centre was established by Corcadorca in 2011. Unique in Ireland, it is a studio space dedicated to the development of professional theatre.

Housed in the Triskel Arts Centre, Corcadorca make the space available to theatre makers free of charge so they may write, work with actors, develop the technical aspects of a piece, but most of all so they have a supportive environment in which to create work for the stage.

Friday Sharing August 29th

Johnny

 

As the last fish left in the sea, Johnny the Jellyfish must find creative ways to fight the loneliness and keep from losing his mind.

The private life of the Jellyfish is a one-man comedy theatre piece by Richard Clare that deals with themes of isolation and environmentalism but is really just an excuse for him to write and act stuff he finds funny and interesting. It is stage managed by Tom Duffy,  costume by Francesca Castellano and it includes ideas and characters developed with Fernando Rodriquez.
