Two By One in the Courthouse Theatre
Fresh from winning Best Writer, Director, Actress and Design at Cork Writer’s Week, Jan O’Sullivan, Irene Kelleher and Judy Donovan will perform “Fishtail” by Jennifer Williams, directed by Sarah O’Dwyer. John Stack and Paula Drohan will perform “Pictures” which took two first places on the One Act circuit in November. The play is written by John himself and directed by Brendan Drohan.
“Fishtail”takes us on a moving journey through fantasy and reality, in a complicated relationship between Serena and her mother Alice. Both women share their deepest thoughts and wishes in a gripping piece of new writing. The Cork Examiner described the play as “imaginative”, ”chilling” and “compelling”.
“Pictures” is a witty, fast-paced portrayal of central character Brian’s journey through life, love and tragedy. Through a series of snapshots taken in time, the play depicts the fragility of our ties to loved ones. Biddy White Lennon (actress and director) referred to the piece as “tautly written”, “well constructed”…”utterly brilliant”.
Two By One is a production not to be missed. Courthouse Theatre Feb 3rd and 4th. Bookings at Cahills 058 53992 daily or on 086 8938373 (6-9pm).
