The Party

By FizzyThinking


The political party that ruled in George Orwell’s powerful novel, 1984, is back. But this time there's no torture, only a great night's entertainment with some Orwellian twists. Come and meet the candidate for today's social media society.

For one night only, the four-star Morrison Hotel in the centre of Dublin, will be the venue for the launch of The Party.

In order to create an experiential event that crosses media and genres, we need your help to make this show happen.

Aoife Courtney and Deirdre Lennon (Ready Fire Aim) are teaming up with Sabina Bonnici (FizzyThinking) to create an ambitious event for the Tiger Dublin Fringe, and are bringing a large team of performers, designers and creators together to create an immersive world for an audience of 200. The Party is a development from Ready Fire Aim’s shows in nightclubs, Art Party at The Workmans Club, and FizzyThinking's cross platform storytelling.

Our team is growing, and so far includes Aoife Courtney & Deirdre Lennon (Co-Directors), Sabina Bonnici (Creative Producer) and performers Siofra O’Meara, Angie Butler, Mary Conroy, Hilary Bowen-Walsh, Aisling Madden, Alicia Falvey, Fionnual Gygax, Venetia Bowe, & Michael Dempsey,

By funding this project, you'll automatically become a member of the Inner Party. We can't tell you here what happens in the Inner Party because only Inner Party members are in the know, but we have made a few special rewards public.

We would be very grateful for your support in making this show happen.

The Party Makers:
Aoife Courtney, Deirdre Lennon, Sabina Bonnici.



Party on...

Dear Party Funders, We thought you might like to check out some photos http://on.fb.me/1xdpyMs and a short video (4min) https://vimeo.com/111408522 we've pulled together from the night of The Party. And, if you're around town on Monday 8th December, a few of the Party collaborators are heading to Hogans, Georges St, from 7pm. If you're around, drop in and say hi! Cheers, Sabina, Aoife, Deirdre.

The Party comes to life!

Dear Party Funders, What a night!! 200 audience members, 27 performers, and 37 team members and YOU made The Party happen last night. We really could not have done this without your support, so from the bottom of our hearts, thank you once again. Here’s a taster of the night in tweets: https://storify.com/sabinabonnici/the-party Oh, and a 4.5 star review! http://www.thepublicreviews.com/tiger-dublin-fringe-the-party-morrison-hotel-dublin/ If you are around Dublin tonight, we're having a post-show discussion and a drink or two, from 7pm at The Liquor Rooms. We'd love to see you there if you can make it in to say hello. http://thepartylaunch.com/post-show-event/ Kind Regards, Sabina, Aoife, Deirdre.

Thank you / an update on The Party

A huge thank you to all of you lovely people for your support and generosity. You helped us achieve our FundIt target! We're really very grateful to every single one of you for helping to bring this exciting work to life. The creative team is coming together nicely, and full time rehearsals start next week. It's brilliant to see that tickets for the show are already selling at http://fringefest.com/programme/the-party (The Fringe have an amazing line up this year - do check it out.) For those of you who signed up for Party rewards, we will be in touch about these in a couple of weeks time when The Party begins its recruitment in earnest. Stay tuned to your telescreens...
