Founded in 2011 by a group of petrified theatre makers who didn't having a clue what they were doing. Twisted Focus was born from a closet sized office in The Gaiety School of Acting, Sycamore Street, where their over enthusiasm led them to believe they could conquer the world.
Their first production 'Work in Progress' (Smock Alley Theatre) stemmed from their complete 'lack of a clue' how to devise. Went down a storm though..... "A Wonderful little show. Sharp as a tack. Funny as ..... Just funny" Patrick Sutton.....See - Level 1 of taking over the world complete!
Level 2 - Twisted Focus in collaboration with Dublin Theatre Company are staging a production of Apples by Richard Milward and John Rettalack to be directed by Ronan Wilmot and staged by a cast of young, enthusiastic and deadly actors!
Apples is a play about sex and the city when you’re 15.
“Apples cocks an unflinching hard-stare at the sharp end of teenage life, and the play is edgy, exciting and quite brilliant. The drugs, the sex, the boozing… it all smacks beautifully of the real thing.” Time Out
It has toured the UK and was a winner of the coveted Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
For its Irish debut we’re taking this gritty yet comic fairytale and setting it in a North Dublin school.
Apples will be performed in RiRa, The Globe, Dame Street on Monday 24th, Tuesday 25th, Wednesday 26th, Friday 28th, Saturday 29th September nightly.
Level 3 – We need your help! We’re a new company brimming with ideas but with empty pockets. We need a little bit of money to get the basics of a play together …licensing rights, props, costume, lighting, sound etc. Any donation big or small would be really appreciated and help us greatly on our way to delivering this amazing show. Everyone involved in the show is working for free because we’re all passionate about this project and want to bring exciting, edgy theatre to you wonderful people! Thanks for reading and your support we love you all! xxx
