In­vi­ta­tion to get in touch with your in­ner poet

Bray People - - News -

Lo­cal play­wright and the­atre prac­ti­tioner Lor­raine O’Brien is invit­ing peo­ple to find their ‘in­ner poet,’ and raise some money for Kil­coole’s Luisne Spir­i­tual Cen­tre by tak­ing part in a six-week course start­ing on March 12.

The cost of the course is €55 and it takes place on Thurs­days from 8 p.m. to 9.30 p.m.

Lor­raine em­pha­sizes that prior knowl­edge of po­etry or writ­ing is not nec­es­sary. ‘All that is re­quired is open­ness for ad­ven­ture and self dis­cov­ery,’ she said.

Lor­raine was the founder of the Dry Rain The­atre Com­pany and her play ‘Dark Places,’ was a sell-out in the Mer­maid The­atre.

‘Find­ing your in­ner poet is noth­ing to do with be­ing a poet in the known sense,’ said Lor­raine. ‘It is about us­ing the writ­ten word to ex­plore who you are, what you want and where you are go­ing.’

All pro­ceeds from the course will go to­wards the de­vel­op­ment of the Luisne Spir­i­tual Cen­tre. For book­ings call (01) 2010001 or go to
