Cast announcement – seminar

SEMINAR CAST ANNOUNCEMENT

Lads it has been a year, let’s be honest, it really has, and we have so very badly missed our productions and giving you a show, so…

Without further ado, we are so delighted, excited and GIDDY to announce to you the insanely talented cast for our next production of “Seminar” written by Theresa Rebeck, directed by Corinna Reichle and assistant director Sean Coyle.

Due to the ongoing situation – that we shall not talk about – we couldn’t take a current photo of times when people actually touched each other, so we had to use one from the archives…when group photos were a thing, imagine that.

WOrkshop – 12 January 2021

Good Evening No Dramies!

This Tuesdays workshop will be held by the ever-talented Peter Blennerhassett on-

Creating compelling characters.

Why do you care about a character? What is it about some of them that makes you want to spend time with them? What foundations have been put into them to make them feel real and engaging?

In this writing workshop, we’ll create characters, build on them and see what happens when they go out into the big bad world. Make sure you have a way of writing, be that keyboard, pen or ogham stone.

Peter has had the immense pleasure of being involved with No Drama Theatre for the last four years in capacities such as writing, acting, stage management and most recently running the No Drama writers group, the Scribblers.

We are so looking forward to this as usual!Join us on zoom at 7pm, details below!
