Hope springs eternal

Ah, the spring. A time of birth and new beginnings. A time the sun starts to March on and brings us a grand old stretch in the evenings. The fear we have already failed our New Year’s Resolutions banished. A time of blossoming hope. A time of:

+ No Drama Monologue Night +

Join us with our fabulous host Noely Michael murphy upstairs of the Bison Bar where we’ll be spring cleaning our minds with a dash of hope.

We’re all coiled up and ready to go!

Location: Synge Street CBS
Provisional callback dates: Thursday 14th and Monday 18th March

Please send your applications to kate.cosgrave2@mail.dcu.ie with subject line “Kate Crackernuts Audition”, indicating which day you would like to attend and your preference for two roles max (doubled roles count as one slot, but you may not be called to read for both halves of a doubled role).

*****

Kate – Female
Kate is the mightiest cleverest person around. Practical Kate will set out to solve a problem, however unsolvable it may seem.

Paul – Male
A sick young man. Formerly an eloquent young man. Falls victim to vice in search of comfort after the death of his glorious mother. It’s taking its toll.

Paul’s voice – Female
All the better parts of Paul that don’t want to be lost by him. This is a highly physical and sometimes abstract role.

Headless Sheep – Any gender
A sheep, searching for a head and being very poetically Shakespearean about it. A storytelling role.

Anne – Female
Kate’s step-sister. An unmatched beauty and unrivaled romantic. No good at solving her own problems. 

Miss Prima – Female
Seductive and Deadly older woman. Queen of the scene, pusher and all-round femme fatale. 

Baby – Male
Miss Prima’s foul-mouthed and neglected baby.

Ralph – Male
Paul’s competitive brother. Wants his share of the attention.

Kate’s mother – Male
Kate’s loving mother, Anne’s evil stepmother. A brittle, jealous and insecure woman.

Father – Male
Paul’s father, a well-off Kingly type with as many good intentions as gold coins, but out of sane ideas to help his ailing son.

Lavender – Female
A mysterious wise old crone.

Wilhema – Female
A bouncer you don’t want to mess with.

No Drama presents: Neil+1 & Bill and Bob

We are thrilled to invite you to this very special Improv Night.
Back to Back improv, where not one, not two, but three (+1) very talented people will take the stage of Smock Alley’s Boys School.

Founding member, Neil Curran will be blowing us away with his show Neil +1 and on top of that, we welcome the extremely handsome and talented Bill and Bob, aka Shane Robinson and Tamryn Reinecke.

All these festivities are only a few sleeps away! So get your tickets (here) while they’re still hot hot hot!!
29th March | 19:30 | Smock Alley Theatre | The Boys’ School

Neil +1 is a unique improvised theatre show starring Neil Curran and a random audience member. Completely unplanned and improvised, an audience member is invited up on stage and becomes a leading performer in the show! There are no tricks, plants or gimmicks; everything is made up on the spot. What unfolds is an alternative view of the life of the audience member, unfolding through improvised narrative.

Bill and Bob are the improvising duo of Shane Robinson and Tamryn Reinecke. They perform a specific style of improv creating real characters from the quirks of human nature. Exploring these relationships on stage can result in boundless hilarity and other times a melancholy undertone either way it’s always in pursuit of the truth of the moment.
