News from the Bat Cave
I apologise for the radio silence recently…rest assured this is not just because I lost the divine inspiration required for blogging. In fact, the machines are still whirring away at The Jack Burdell Experience, so here is a little update on some of our secret plans and clever tricks …
Firstly, Clara and Jen’s ‘She’s Got Love For You’ is heading down to The Solstice in Cork, which is part of Cork Midsummer Festival … it’s a cracking little show, and the whole festival looks set to be pretty darn great, so if you can why not head on down! Plus two other shows from the festival: ‘Finding Fighting Words’ and ‘The Lost Art of Not Blinking’, have been selected for the Dublin Theatre Festival’s ‘Play On’ writing initiative. Watch this space!
We recently assembled for a read through of the new draft of Philip St John’s ‘The Sylvia’, which was performed as a rehearsed reading in our Collaborations festival. The 2nd half has been transformed and it’s now looking better than ever; so we’re hoping to show a few interested parties soon, and get it into production in the not too distant future.
And finally, the main space of Smock Alley had its official opening last night with the Smock Alley Players first new production: ‘She Stoops To Conquer’, which went down very well. It’s running until June 2nd, with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays so I’d love you to head on down … partly because I’m in it, but mostly because it’s a great show!
We’ll see you soon.
