the next director

Good evening beautiful people, just in case you missed our winter production announcement at our Shindig after-party- here it is…in writing!

A woman of such talent, wit, humour, intelligence and comedic timing like no other needs no introduction, but here it is anyway because dammmn we are beyond excited for this! This year’s winter production, will be directed by the one and only – Corinna Reichle! Hi – it’s me. she’s natural.she’s approachable.she is just like one of you.

Corinna has been a member of No Drama Theatre for the past 4 years. She started out as a loyal workshop-attendee (and the pub-after-goer… remember the pub after a workshop?); then soon began helping out backstage at No Drama Shows.

She has written, directed and performed in several of the Shindigs and the (BYO) Monologue Nights and had the pleasure of facilitating a couple of the No Drama Workshops. In 2018 she developed her 10-minute Shindig piece „Insomnia“ further and took it to Smock Alley Theatre’s Scene + Heard Festival.

Outside of No Drama Theatre, Corinna has worked as (Assistant) Stage Manager and Assistant Director for several productions around Dublin and just came back from Assistant Directing two plays in Berlin. Before they locked down.

She finished the Advanced Performance Course in the Gaiety School of Acting and an Introduction to the Meisner Technique and is currently in her third and final year of studying Theatre Performance in Inchicore College for Further Education.

After having been Assistant Director for No Drama’s last main production „Gaslight“ in winter 2019 she is now super happy to have been selected Director for this one. In such strange and unprecedented times, too.

It’s going to be a bit different, but she is up for all the challenges the Corona-Pandemic will be throwing at this production and is looking forward to get her amazing crew and euphoric cast assembled.

There you have it folks, get excited, get involved, get READY.

Because we definitely are 😉

The show will in fact, go ON!🎭

WORKSHOP – 27 OCTOBER 2020

Happy Banker dear friends!

Over the next coming months we will introduce you to the different facets of a production, from translating an idea to a concept, to budgeting, directing and producing.

With the talent, experience and knowledge No Drama has, we feel it’s time to spread the word.

Kicking off this block will be Mr. Jonathan Shortall, who will takes us to where all our productions start: the script. What are the components of a script? How do different authors approach creating one? What do we look for in a script were looking to produce and what do we do once we have one we like the look of? All these questions and more will be answered, with the usual games, chats and good times you’ve come to expect!

WORKSHOP – 6 October 2020

Happy Monday Folks!!

This week’s workshop we reach the culmination of the murder mystery genre with an exploration of the endpoint for all murder most foul: the courtroom!

Recovering solicitor Jonathan Shortall will be using his professional experience to guide us through both the realities of a murder trial and its fictional counterpart in this deep dive into all things legalatrical (he assures us that its a word).

We will be first looking at the makeup of the courtroom, rules of evidence and advocacy before taking a close look at some key legal drama scenes to see how these elements are incorporated, before closing out with a full-on mock trial!CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS ONE
