We’ll be holding auditions for our Autumn plays on Thur May 26th, Tue May 31st and Thur June 2nd. All at 8pm upstairs in the Kildrought Inn, Celbridge.
The plays are:-
“Love in a Glass Jar” by Nancy Harris to be directed by Bill Elliffe. This is a one act play that will be presented locally in the Kildrought and we plan to bring it on the one act festival circuit later this year.
It centres around Eve and Patrick, two strangers who get chatting on a dating website. They’ve agreed to a face-to-face meeting in a hotel room but all is not as it initially seems. Patrick is in his late forties and separated from his wife. He has no children and harbours hopes of romancing Eve, whose online profile so beguiled him. Eve is a successful single woman in her thirties and is tired of being let down by love. The dynamic between them shifts and flows with comic and painful results as both Eve and Patrick struggle to come to terms with their loneliness and each other. 1 male, 1 female.
“Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays” conceived by Brian Shnipper to be directed by Michael Giblin. This will be presented locally in the Kildrought.
This is a powerful collection of short plays that celebrate love and explore the landscape of marriage equality. Written by eight acclaimed playwrights, “Standing on Ceremony” holds a magnifying glass to the highs and lows, joys and fears, courage and silliness, of people bucking trends and making history. The playwrights include Mo Gaffney, Jordan Harrison, Moisés Kaufman, Neil LaBute, Wendy MacLeod, José Rivera, Paul Rudnick and Doug Wright. 3 male and 3 female minimum but more possible.
Endgame by Samuel Beckett to be directed by Joe Canavan. This is a full length play performed without an intermission. We plan to present it in the Autumn and revive it in the new year for the full length festival circuit.
Endgame is one of Beckett’s most important works. Its protagonists are Hamm, an aged blind master who cannot stand and his servant Clov, who cannot sit. They exist in a tiny house by the sea, though dialogue suggests there’s nothing left outside—no sea, no sun, no clouds. Mutually dependent, they’ve fought for years and continue to do so. Also present are Hamm’s legless parents Nagg and Nell, who live in rubbish bins. 3 male and 1 female.
