Circular stages

Another play in the Granary, this time over the Bank Holiday / Jazz Festival Weekend. 4.48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane (it's showing at 8pm on October 11, 12, 13 & 21, 22 and at 12 midnight on Saturday October 23.

'4.48 PSYCHOSIS' deals with the suicide of a young girl. Kane interweaves fantasy and delusion with her
life experience, including her relationship with the psychiatrist in the mental hospital in which the play is set.

Which reminds me, Alleycats will be showing The Curious Savage, another play set in a mental hospital at the Cork Arts Centre (CAT club) in December.

Yet another play, and I'm involved in it, is Amelia by Pauline Jackson which is showing as part of the Cork Ghost Festival on October 26, 27, 28, 29 in the Vision Centre. It's the story of Mrs. Emma Bishop who murders her way in to money and her unfortunate maid Amelia. Based on a series of actual incidents in Cork.

And there is more (it's been a while since I've written about plays and such).
The Storytellers Theatre Company presents Hard to Believe (written and directed by Conall Morrison) in the Half Moon Theatre on October 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 at 8pm. Staring Sean Kearns it's just finished it's run in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

"Hard To Believe charts with dramatic intensity and humour the story of John Foster, a former counter- intelligence officer who operated dirty tricks for the British army in Northern Ireland. A professional cynic and arch political manipulator, he returns to Belfast when the last member of his family dies, where he finds himself in the family attic, free-falling through memories of a complex and contradictory life." ... "It poses the question: at the dark centre of a world of spin and stakeknife, is there anything left we can truly have faith in?"

Personally I love the term, "a world of spin and stakeknife" in relation to northern Ireland.

And in the same building... Amp Fiddler plays the Opera House. He is described as being "equal parts Prince, George Clinton and Stevie Wonder". He's playing on October 25 as part of the Jazz Festival Weekend.

Which brings be back to my first link.

take care,
