SPECTRUMSESSION 28 FEB – 2 MAR

Fags, Skags and Sleeping Bags…

Straight from your favorite music festival beside a miscellaneous body of water.

No cans to spare, scarce tobacco and the music won’t start again for several hours. Could the deranged ramblings of the irredeemably degenerate provide a path to salvation? Sure, all you know is you’re not missing the headline act for the world.

No Drama Theatre’s official entry into this wonderful festival is a unique piece written by one of our own. Due to the content of the play they have requested that their identity remained undisclosed. However, they assure us that he/she/it is working extremely hard with a very dedicated cast to bring a bit of that wet field magic to the main stage!

We are paired with a very intriguing piece from ThereisBear! Theatre, which we are equal parts terrified, fascinated, and, above all, excited by.

Tickets are available to book now on the Smock Alley website

Closer Cast

Introducing the cast of No Drama Theatre’s production of “Closer” by Patrick Marber.

Left to right: David Breen (Dan), Ellen Nolan (Alice), Siobhan Hickey (Director), Helen McGrath (Anna) and Hans Vennevertloo (Larry).

Many thanks to all those who auditioned (you were all amazing!) and a special shout out to Adam Walsh, Louise Dunne, and Renee van de Schoor for assisting with the audition process.

Closer will be in The Teacher’s Club, Parnell Square, Dublin in the last week of April.

Let the rehearsals begin!

Next ‘Shindig’ Performance night.

shin·dig (shndg)
n.
1. A festive party, often with dancing.
2. An platform for drama members to demonstrate their talents and put on a show of their own making. Composed of several 10-15 minute performances. Almost certainly without any dancing.

We might need to work on the name but the date for this terms multi-piece event have been decided.
and it is : 8th of May 2010.

For those of you not familiar here is how it works.
1. You find a group of no drama members to collaborate with or go solo if you so choose.

2. Decide what you want to do. It can be tragedy,comedy,horror,romance or whatever just as long as it is drama (no variety acts please!) , you can write a piece, you can direct, you can act, it doesn’t even have to be complete. If you think you have one great scene put it together and show everyone.

3. Put together a proposal and send it to us (contact@nodramatheatre.com)

4. If the piece is suitable we’ll assign you a mentor to help put things together and you can start work!

If you do not have an idea ready but would still like to participate let us know. We can provide scripts if you would like something pre-prepared (or have a look for ten minute scripts on the net, there are many public domain works out there). We will also help people find a group to work with.

Tickets: Ticket sales will not be directly available to the public (subject to change, depending on venue size) , each performing group will get an allocation of tickets to sell as they please. Ticket prices TBD.

Eligibility: Unfortunately those who are rehearsing for June’s production are not allowed participate (Directors orders!). Finally only no drama members (people who have paid their fees ) can participate

Get your thinking caps on and lets put on a show people.
