Scratch Scripts save Sunday

22 Jan

Besides being suckers for alliteration and sensationalist headlines, we also love to see what new work is being created and debated in our fair city so we are really looking forward to this week’s Scratch Scripts at the Town Hall Studio.

Ten minute extracts will be read from four scripts: ‘Pageant’ by Joey Kavanagh, ‘Shattered’ by Ciara O’Dowd, ‘Crossings’ by Seán Bennett, and a selection from ‘Festival’ by Órla McGovern. The actors reading will be Maria Lopez, Siobhán Donnellan, Dara Mac Eoin and Kate Murray. The readings will be directed by Róisín Stack of JOLT (official title).

After each reading, the writers will ask the audience a few questions about their piece and a short discussion will ensue.

Entry to the event is only €5 and all proceeds go towards . . . . making more theatre. So hopefully we will see you there.
