‘Didn't mean to scare her. I think I just wanted her to recognise me. I've been a stranger here for over a week.’
Crude Mechanics Theatre Company are Roisin Coyle and Janet Moran. Our first production was 'Noteworthy' at Theatre Upstairs in 2013. We are committed to producing new writing.
Our newest production, 'Sick' by Roisin Coyle, will premiere at the Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival 2014.
Under the skilled guidance of director Aoife Spillane-Hinks, 'Sick' is a piercing new play looking at family, isolation and the end of love.
Orla is at breaking point, frustrated and trapped by her mother's Alzheimer's disease. To escape her dismal existence, Orla daydreams about romance and delight. But when fantasy is the only release and life is hell, it's hard for her to drag herself back to reality.
To make this play become a reality we need financial assistance to help cover our production costs totalling €4,000. Your contribution, no matter how small or large, will be of incredible importance to the production of 'Sick'. We would love if you came on this journey with us!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our page.

Good morning, friends and supporters!
We wanted to write you all a quick note to thank you for your great generosity. With your help, SICK is moving closer to becoming a reality—we’ve already surpassed the 50% mark of our fundraising goal.
Aoife and Roisin are in the thick of auditions this weekend, and it has been thrilling to hear the play spoken aloud by so many varied and talented performers.
While we’re delighted by the support we’ve received thus far, we still have just under €2,000 to raise in the next 12 days. It would be fanatstic if you could share our campaign link
on your facebook, twitter, and other social media accounts.
And if you know someone who might like to support us, please send them to the page.
We look forward to sharing the production with you, and thanking you in person, this September at Tiger Dublin Fringe.
All the best,
Roisin, Janet, Aoife and the SICK team.
