There are a few great shows happening at this week and next at the Project in Dublin.
Today you have two chances to see Six Characters in Search of an Author by Dublin Youth Theatre, directed by Jason Byrne, at 2.30 and 8.15pm. It sounds like it is very loosely based on the Pirandello play of the same name but it also sounds like a lot of fun – youth theatre shows usually are! And it’s got a great review on Meg.ie
Upstairs in the Project, there’s another re-interruptation of an old play with Siren Productions of The Making of Tis Pity She’s a Whore. It sounds like a really interesting project – combining live action and film scenes together. I saw The Lulu House during the Dublin Theatre Festival, which was also directed by Selina Cartmell and also used technology in interesting ways. I didn’t love it but I did find it enjoyable and interesting.
There’s a great article about the play and the use of technology in theatre in general in the Irish Times.
It’s on until December 17th.
And next week there is TEXT | MESSAGES where “Nine artists will present 160 lines of a Shakespeare play, using two or more actors, in no more than 20 minutes.”
It’s over three nights (Tue 13 – Thur 15) with different pieces being presented each night, and it’s only €5!
