Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
