Hi all, we're Room To Move Theatre Company. For our next production, Hugh Leonard's "Love In The Title", we need your help. We're hoping to raise €1,600, which would go a long way towards paying for the rights of the play and the hire of the New Theatre, Temple Bar, Dublin. Any contribution, big or small, is welcome and genuinely appreciated.
Room to Move Theatre Company are a relatively new, independent and unfunded theatre company, founded by Martin Burns (producer), Dave Ferguson (director) and April Bracken (actor). We have one production already under our belts, 2011's critically-acclaimed sell-out show 'Lovers' by Brian Friel. We first performed Lovers at the Powerscourt Centre, Dublin, in 2010, as a three-show production with all profits going to the Dublin Simon Community. Following positive feedback, we brought the play to the New Theatre for two weeks in the summer of 2011. The production was a resounding success, with sell-out shows almost every night and glowing reviews from publications such as The Sunday Times and entertainment.ie, amongst others. We place the singularity of performance at the heart of the theatrical experience and pursue a style of theatre which is fresh, immediate and embraces the uncertainty that live performance should bring.
'Love In The Title' is taking the The New Theatre stage from May 14th to June 2nd, to be directed by Dave Ferguson. On a visit to the Irish countryside to do research for her thesis, Katie has a fantastical meeting among herself, in 1999 at age 37; her mother, Triona, at age 30 in 1964; and her mother's mother, Cat, at age 20 in 1932. Through these three women, Leonard explores the many social changes in Ireland within one century. As they talk, bicker, insult and argue across the generations, aspects of their futures/pasts are revealed and some of their mother-daughter conflicts ease just a little. The conceit of having characters converse across time pays wonderful comic dividends with one generation’s slang meaningless to another.
"Love In The Title" is an amazing play and, with a little help, we're sure to bring you an amazing production.
