HART & PUNCH comprise 2 members, namely Hart and Punch. That is, Caroline Hart and Damian Punch, 2 clowns who were set free by Simon Edwards of The Actor's Space. He made us do stuff that we were not ashamed to do on our own. And then, he made us do it in front of people. And they laughed and we liked it so we did it again. And now we want to do it all over the place. We call it 'Twilight Cabaret'.
Those of you who saw the short form of this play will remember how much fun we all had. Well, now, we intend to expand it to a full length piece( with a little help from you). Simon Edwards will once again be waving the magic wand as director and after a two week rehearsal at 'The Actor's Space' and a week back here in Ireland, we hope to do a tour of Cork County (with a little help from your good selves), in July and August of this year. We will provide dates the minute we have them.
For those of you that might not have seen the short form of this play, I will elucidate( big word! ).
'Twilight Cabaret' is a tragi/comic play in the form of the theatre clown. It focuses on two simple souls struggling through a fraught relationship both off and, ultimately, on stage. It's an unusual form of theatre that relates at times directly to it's audience and is always listening to the audiences reactions. Don't worry we don't sit on you or anything but we do take our cues from your reactions.
Through intrepid means and kind sponsors we have raised some funds. But, to realise the full potential of this piece, we are asking for your help to fund production and a short tour of a large county. Please help us bring this little gem to a wider audience.
