Debut 2016

A festival of Theatre from graduating Directors of TCD's BA in Drama and Theatre Studies course

Week 3:

Salome by Oscar Wilde

Date:

Weds 7 to Fri 9 December at 6pm

Director:

Richard Durning

Details:

The palace of Herod. Salome, Herod's mysteriously powerful step-daughter, is dogged by his lascivious attention. Breaking men, clutching at control, she seems a force without equal, until she encounters the incisive prophet Jokanaan, who will not be moved. Salome takes her revenge, in one fell swoop, on Herod, Jokanaan, man, and God. All the while, the angel of death beats its wings and the fateful moon watches. Something terrible is bound to happen.

Salome is a sumptuous, decadent, poetic play, abounding in rich character and mystical symbolism. It's about old gods, new gods and those who choose neither.

Tickets:

Euro 10, 5 conc

Booking:

In advance, full-priced tickets may be booked online. Tickets, including concession tickets, will also be available on the door from 1 hour before the start time of each performance.

The River by Jez Butterworth

Date:

Weds 7 to Fri 9 December at 8pm

Director:

Briony Morgan

Details:

Just the two of them. The river, the beach, the fishing cabin, the midnight trout run. A bottle of wine. A new moon. No TV, no internet, no-one nearby to distract or bother them. Peace and quiet, and an opportunity to get to know one another better. Or to find they may as well be strangers.

Jez Butterworth's The River flows between reality and fantasy, truth and lie, fact and fiction. Mystery, mysticism and magic meet biting wit in this intense and intimate thriller. 

Tickets:

Euro 10, 5 conc

Booking:

In advance, full-priced tickets may be booked online. Tickets, including concession tickets, will also be available on the door from 1 hour before the start time of each performance.

The play is produced by ActorsVision through its Cross Emotion Studio programme.
