Sanctuary - 'What if the cinema was the only sanctuary for your relationship? It looked like an ordinary trip to the cinema and a welcome break from their training centre. But for Larry and Sophie it’s an opportunity to steal away and be alone together at last. But now that they’re alone, what are they going to say and do?’
Blue Teapot Theatre Company is a unique group of people who make inspiring theatre. We are a place where actors with an intellectual disability (ID) can achieve excellence.
Our last production, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, brought our acting company to new heights but we’re not stopping there. We love to challenge ourselves and our audiences.
Our actors have the ambition, talent and training to take risks and to be extraordinary. Our upcoming project, Sanctuary is just that, extraordinary. Playwright, Christian O’Reilly has been working with our actors for months developing the characters and plotline. Our ensemble have been training and performing together for over five years with top theatre professionals.
We are ready to take you through the lives of the characters in this beautiful play. Poignant, funny and realistic, Sanctuary opens a window into the lives and relationships of people with ID and the obstacles they must overcome to be together.
We have the talent, the venue, the creative team and the support from the Galway Theatre Festival. Premiering this new work at a national festival is a first for Blue Teapot. Your pledge will ensure that the production values created will do our actors proud. They are professionals and this production should reflect this in all of the supporting production elements, and of course, our actors need to get paid professionally too!
We really appreciate your support (we couldn't do it without you)
A huge thank you from all of the Teapots! See you at the show.
About us: Blue Teapot creates quality, professional theatre productions that will entertain, delight and move you. We have a mission! Our mission is to effect a positive change in public consciousness concerning people with ID through the medium of theatre by allowing our members inherent talent and creativity to speak for itself.
