About SHROUD (see clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wbY1qf1Dx0)
Shroud is a tremendous drama that goes behind the scenes to explore the structures and priorities that lie behind the Catholic Church’s handling of the child sexual abuse scandal that rocked society to its foundations. Shroud looks from a unique angle to see what goes on when the Church is left to think and act uninhibited by any other presence. It is a must see for anyone who considers themselves willing to explore perspectives other than their own.
Hawtheatre are producing Shroud and taking it to The Playground Theatre, London, prior to a planned tour of Ireland in 2022. Shroud raises many unspoken questions that we feel only drama can voice. We believe this play can make a difference and we need your support to make it happen!
The SHROUD team are all long standing theatrical professionals. This is Hawtheatre’s fifth production following The Juggler, Zeitgeist, The Early Hours and Last train from Holyhead which starred the late Mick Lally http://itmarchive.ie/web/Reviews/Current/Last-Train-from-Holyhead.aspx.html. Writer Bernard Field's work has been produced and toured all over Ireland and the UK. Michael Irwin has many outstanding credits to his name; Fintan Kelly is an up and coming future star of stage and screen and our director Jim Ivers has worked extensively in both Ireland and Canada and he directed Haw Theatre's critically acclaimed production of the Early Hours in 2011 at The Town Hall, Galway. http://itmarchive.ie/web/Reviews/Current/The-Early-Hours.aspx.html
We all feel passionately that this play needs to be seen. Ten percent of profits from the show will be donated to One in Four, a charity which supports victims and survivors of sexual abuse. We receive no outside funding whatsoever and are investing €4,500 of our own money which will be invested in preparing the play at home. To realise the project we need to raise a further €5,000
Budget: here is what your generous donations will be spent on:
Lighting and Sound Engineer €350
Hawtheatre want to sincerely thank everyone for their generous contributions to this project.
It means the world to us.
