Its summer production time down here at Synge Street. Director Louise Dunne is set to take to a main production where no main production has gone before: Smock Alley Theatre’s Main Stage! The play will run from the 4th to the 8th of July but if it is going to do so, it will require your help.
We need people to help out in a number of key positions both in management and backstage. If you don’t have experience in a position that you are interested in then we are always happy to provide training. If you have ever worked backstage you know how fun and rewarding it can be to help put on a show and this promises to be quite the show! In particular, we are looking for Prop Master as a matter of priority, which involves assisting with the sourcing of props and taking charge of them during the performance.
If you wish to get stuck in or think you might be able to help out in promoting the play then please contact Louise at loudunne at gmail.com
Tickets for said production are available here!

Physical and Absurd Theatre.
Devised by Ciaran Treanor, Daniel O’Brien, Emma Brennan, Helen McGrath and Noel Cahill
Directed by Ciaran Treanor.
Fearing work tomorrow? Don’t worry, we’ll be there to ease the pain, with a fantastic new workshop from Mr Noel Cahill!!
How can you play on stage? How can you perfect your staging? Let’s take a look at speed, rhythm and cadence within absurd theatre. This workshop is based around choreography and exaggeration. We will look at speeding things up and slowing things right down, fattening them til they burst, and even skipping whole chunks of action to tell an aesthetic story instead of just a story. We’ll try to apply the Lecoq technique of expand and reduce.
Hope to see you’ll there, and for all you newbies, the first one is free!
