Quiz! Prizes! Fun! Fundraiser for The Trial

It’s a quiz.
Where: The Grand Social, Liffey St.

There will be questions.
What kind: Who even asks that!? It’s a quiz. Turn up and see what you know… or don’t know.

And oh how we will all laugh….
How much for this ‘laugh’: €10 per person. Don’t worry about having a team organised beforehand. We’re a very sexy inclusive bunch.

Things should kick off at 8pm so please be there around 7.30 so you can get your team sorted, order some pizza, get your pint of leffe and have that one last google of random facts.

This is the fundraiser for ‘The Trial’ project so who better to be running the night than a real-life burrito-loving lawyer, Jonathan Shortall.

He’s great.

Full details for ‘The Trial’ can be found on our Facebook event page

Helping out with The Trial Project

A wee message from The Trial’s director, Noel Cahill.

“Would anyone be interested in helping out, getting involved in “The Trial Project”?

Looking for people to be able to do audio-visual, light or sound tech.
One for each strand, as well as three people to do front of house on every night, as well as three people to do some street acting before the play starts.

No experience required, just enthusiasm, time, concentration and ability to listen.

Would need to make a production meeting and a rehearsal a week before the play and be available for the play from June 12th to June 18th. 5 performances, a tech run and a dress (flowery).

Anyone interested contact Noel Cahill on noeljcahill@yahoo.ie.

Thanks very much!”

The reviews for ‘The Trial’ have already started coming in and the show hasn’t even been performed yet. Now that’s impressive.

So for the love of all that’s fair and right in the world, all will be posted.

“A heavy-handed fugue of a production that swamps the audience in a morass of pompous, stinking cliché and tortured, circuitous plot logic. The performances are as wayward as they are trite, emotional depth hereby confused with shrill melodrama and redundant, if not entirely ersatz, erotic dance routines. The sets have been seemingly designed by abandoned toddlers on a Benzedrine and skittles binge. It is a small mercy that the languorous performances are so occluded by the lush brocade and apt feathery provided by the costume designer. Kudos Frau Mangevest for the above, and a fie on the rest of the cast / production team for their louche jackanapery.”- 1 popcorn out of 5.
