Ok so it’s a shameless plug but its deserved! And they did link to my blog so they deserve a mention.
Back in June of this year, myself and another user from boards.ie, Niamh Cullen tried our best to form a Dublin based drama group with a difference after our efforts to find one failed poorly. We both had our minds set on a few criteria for a drama group:
* Stir clear of traditional Oirish plays which have been done over and over
* Avoid falling in the “Whats on this year in the Leaving Cert” trap
* Avoid groups dominated by old farts
Our first drama group meet up consisted of 4 people, 1 of which never returned. However through much persistence and online pushing, things started moving. We now have approximately 20 people who turn up every week and a committee.
So why plug this (shamelessly) now? Well a few reasons. First of all, our beta website went live. www.nodramatheatre.com This is due to the IT skills of Dave McGowan.
We have a forum on the boards.ie website where we update our goings on and the likes. The forum can be found here.
Our drama season is wrapping up for the Christmas but it ends on a high. We have cast our first production; a original piece one act written by Barry O’Donovan and his buddy (who’s name escapes me!) entitled Night At The Invasion.
We are kicking of again on January 6th and we plan to having an companion piece which will be performed on the same nights as Night At The Invasion. As things advance, I will keep you all up to date as to how it goes!
