Gráinne Lynch

This project is a three person physical theatre piece. It will be devised by the actors and director so it is a wonderful opportunity for you to help us create something completely new.

This Fund it campaign will help us pay for rehearsal space to make the piece, for set, costumes and lighting to help bring it to life on stage and for practical, necessary things like insurance, marketing materials and administration costs.

It will be a joyous physical production, a surreal imagining, a fantastical jaunt. Jump into the shallow end with three worldless explorers, as they crash, dive, duck and jive through their humdrum mundanedom to landscapes of light. Tired of the tedium and inspired by their dreams a trio of arch friends find new realities and old adversities. They push the boundaries. And the boundaries push back. But there’s not much can keep a gagster down when there are new defeats to discover.

The spark of an idea for this show came last October and we have spent the last few months refining that idea and assembling a crack team of actors who can take on the challenge of devising a piece of theatre from scratch. We are very excited about getting into the rehearsal room to create that piece of theatre and even more excited about sharing it with an audience.

The finished production will take place in Smock Alley Boys' School, March 24 - 29.
