Running with Dinosaurs by Nadine Flynn

By Maria Guiver


RUNNING WITH DINOSAURS is a new play by Nadine Flynn. It receives its world premiere at The New Theatre Dublin this April, directed by Lee Wilson.

Dublin gangland culture is on the rise and often hard to ignore. If you grow up surrounded in a world of violence, is your fate predetermined? Are we merely a product of our circumstance?

Running with Dinosaurs examines the transition of a boy to a man, as he tries to find his purpose outside the walls of an inner city Dublin flat.


Gladeye Productions is a brand new, Dublin based, theatre collective that marks the first collaboration between writer, Nadine Flynn, and director, Lee Wilson. In their inaugural production, they bring together a hotbed of creative talent, fresh out of The Lir Academy, alongside experienced Dublin actors. We are:

CAST | Rory Dignam, Eimear Keating, Tom Leavey, Daniel Monaghan and Aislinn Ní Uallacháin.

CREW | Nadine Flynn (Writer), Lee Wilson (Director), Emma Russell (Stage Manager), Mary Sheehan (Set and Costume Designer), Bill Woodland (Sound and Lighting Designer) and Maria Guiver (Producer).


We think that brilliant writing deserves not just a great team but also, top class production values. We need to raise this money in order to realise the creative vision of both Nadine and our designers.

This Fund it campaign and a once off fundraising event are our sole sources of funding so every penny is incredibly important to our team and the future of this production.

By pledging as little as €5, you can help to provide a platform for new writing exploring the communities of inner city Dublin, and support fresh creative talent.


The funds we raise will cover the cost of set, lighting, costume, sound, insurance, props, tea and biscuits. Luckily, we've managed to cut a few corners with freebies from people we're related to or sleeping with. Now, we need your generosity to help make up the difference.

Our cast and crew are all working hard to make this show a success. Because of our tight budget, the entire team are donating their time and talent on a profit-share basis.

This means that your money will go straight into the show and not our pockets. However, anything that helps make this show a success is a step towards future funding from other sources. Your pledge can not only support this project but also reward the hard work and passion of emerging artists by leading to new opportunities and paid work.

Fortunately, our landlords are accepting creative fulfilment for rent in the meantime.


Thanks for taking the time to read about our project. We hope you will support us by pledging or sharing this page with your family and friends. Be sure to check out the awesome DINOSAUR REWARDS you can earn by pledging.

Lots of Love,

The Running with Dinosaurs Team
