Department of Drama

Director:

Luke Casserly

Details:

I can’t pinpoint when it all died down; I feel like it never really did. I didn’t go back to the beach for a while. I don’t really know who I am anymore.
What does it mean to exist in a world that is cruel and absurd? What happens when you lose complete control over your identity, and are forced to watch it smashed into 28 pieces?
Efficacy 84 is a new piece of work exploring the controversial events surrounding the Kerry Babies atrocity in the 1980s, and the public humiliation of a woman named Joanne Hayes.

There is an element of audience participation in this show.

The Rover

Dates:

Weds 8 (Preview) to Sat 11 March 2017 at 7.30pm; matinee Sat 11 March at 2pm

Playwright:

Aphra Behn

Company:

DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama - BA Drama (Performance) Graduate Production

Director:

Peter McDermott

Details:

It's carnival time in the Mediterranean. Three strong-willed Spanish women disguise themselves in search of desirable men. They happen upon three lusty English cavaliers. When a famous Italian courtesan arrives in town, female and male desires converge in an explosion of love, deception and intrigue.

Aphra Behn - poet, novelist and spy - was not only one of the first professional female playwrights but also the most successful playwright of Restoration England, celebrating female desire with bawdy wit and without apology. She was nearly written out of history, but the 20th century returned Behn to the canon of great theatre and literature.

Full of the colour, dynamism and the mischief of carnival, this production of The Rover by DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama opens on International Women's Day to celebrate Aphra Behn's extraordinary voice.    

Tickets:

Euro 15, 12 conc

Preview (8 March) and matinee (11 March at 2pm): All tickets Euro 12

Booking:

In advance, tickets may only be booked online.

Enquiries: Contact Francis Thackaberry, General Manager, at fthackab@tcd.ie
