Liam’s producing shows for Smock Alley festival
A FORMER RESIDENT of Bray is producing three shows for ‘Scene & Heard’, Smock Alley’s festival of new writing.
Liam Hallahan, below, lived in Bray for most of his adult life. ‘Even though I’m based in Dublin now, Bray still feels like home to me,’ said Liam. He is taking part in Smock Alley’s Generator programme, a mentorship for budding theatre producers. It culminates with the members producing several shows for the festival. The Scene & Heard festival will run from February 14 until March 4. ‘Love Underwater’ by Miriam Neeham will be on in the Dublin Theatre on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 14 and 15, at 6.15 p.m. Love Underwater is a Beckett-style absurd comedy about two tourists, off on a lovely beach holiday, unaware of what’s lurking out in the depths.
In Search of the Spring by Jessie Doyle is a Fairy Tale for Kidults. It uses the language and conventions of fantasy and fairy tales to explore the terrors and uncertainties that come with being in your 20s. The play is on Thursday and Friday, February 16 and 17, at 8 p.m.
Night Shift by Naomi Elster is on Saturday and Sunday, February 18 and 19, at 8 p.m. Night Shift is a play that captures that ‘sitting in a cafe while a couple is having a massive row nearby’ experience.
