Monologue Night – Storybook Edition, 27/05/2019

May is here, and that may mean only one thing! No Drama’s next monologue night is near.

The theme of the evening is the Storybook, in honor and aid of No Drama’s upcoming production of Kate Crackernuts. So, gather round, friends, and prepare to let yourselves be transported into worlds crafted by the teller.

A night of monologues and tales awaits:
Horror stories, love stories, despicable individuals, epics, fairytales, fables, passages, films that should have been books, rip-offs, poems, spoken book reports* and more.

All monologuers and storytellers welcome. If you’re interested in performing (which we highly recommend!), please contact the event via Facebook messenger or email contact@nodramatheatre.com

Both published and original works accepted.

*Okay, we can’t promise that’s a real thing

Workshop – 09/04/2019

Continuing on from last’s week’s work on character development, Siobhan “Shivvy” Hickey will be facilitating this week’s workshop.

Siobhan’s workshop will be focus on getting you from blank canvas to fully formed character through a series of thought provoking exercises.

“I’m very excited for this workshop! Get ready to go big… And then even bigger. My theory is that it’s easier to pare back than it is to build up so get ready to have some fun!”

Siobhan is a writer/actor and has been a member of No Drama Theatre for over 9 years. Throughout her time with the group, she has performed in main productions in a variety of different roles (including the female lead in John McGahern’s ‘The Power of Darkness’) and taken part in the now well established No Drama Monologue Nights. As well as working onstage, Siobhan has also directed (‘Closer’ by Patrick Marber) and produced (including the sell out run of ‘Harvey’ by Mary Chase). Most recently, she performed the first draft of her one woman stand up show ‘Dear Diary… and other notions of a romantic nature’ which is currently being developed for further future performances. Siobhan will also be portraying the character of ‘Anne’ in No Drama Theatre’s upcoming Summer production ‘Kate Crackernuts’.
