GRANARY PRESENTS ITS SUMMER PROGRAMME:
FIVE WEEKS, FIVE SHOWS
3 JULY – 9 AUGUST
Granary is delighted to present five plays as part of our Summer Season 2014. The productions, all by emerging Cork-based theatre companies, are mostly new works, by new writers or devised by the theatre companies.
Journeyman Theatre Company
3-5 July 8pm
A man is discharged from the army. A young woman is trapped in an abusive relationship. A young man embarks on a random night out. When these three lives entangle, three people with wildly different points of view tell the story of the most dangerous, violent and pivotal night of their lives.
YOU’VE MADE YOUR BED, NOW DIE IN IT
16-19 July 8pm
What if you WERE breakfast in bed?!
What if you were someone’s or some-THING’S midnight snack?!
Why have a title, when you can have a tagline?!
The magic and mystery of the horror B-movie genre is celebrated and brought to the stage, with its low quality, low budget and high-concept plot.
No Kissin’ Ensemble
DOCTOR ECSTATICUS AND THE QUEST FOR HAPPINESS
23-26 July 8pm
Dr. Ecstaticus travels from town to town in search of the well of everlasting happiness to bottle and sell as part of a vast collection of magical potions. His young apprentice and son Pip follows him faithfully on a journey through a dark and twisted world. Does everlasting happiness truly exist? Can it be bottled and bargained for? What price must the mysterious doctor pay for such a potion?
Bunkhouse Theatre Company
THE SMALL THINGS
Written by Enda Walsh
30 July – 2 August 8pm
A man and a woman, torn apart by a brutal regime of enforced silence and order, recite their story each day in an attempt to gain the once cherished chaos and the chit chat. They talk of their lives, loves and hates. The painful memories of the dictated routine make them consider the futility of the telling. Can they ever be heard by the other? Are they listening? A breath, a pause, and they continue to speak; to relish in the sound of words and the shape of the small talk.
Conflicted Theatre Company
WE MAKE GODS
5 & 6 August 8:30pm
7-9 August 6:30pm & 8:30pm
She is born with the power to change everything, but in order to keep this from her Orla’s father convinces her that life is a dream and that her dreams are the real world.
A devised piece of physical theatre, We Make Gods creates a new mythology around the gods we’ve created in the modern era. Conflicted Theatre will manifest these digital deities in all their glory so that our heroine can battle them to remind them that we are the ones that make gods. A creative collision between a love of myth and a passion for theatre is brought to the stage with an imaginative and playful use of physicality, stagecraft and storytelling.
