TCL THEATRE La Reine Claude Project Arts Centre 6pm dublintheatrefestival.com What happens if you get 10 of the best playwrights around to work on a new play? Just three weeks ago, The Irish Times and Dublin Theatre Festival decided to find out, and devised The Arc. Tom Murphy began the project with a short scene, and we asked nine other playwrights to follow, one after the other. Sonya Kelly, Deirdre Kinahan, Enda Walsh, Bush Moukarzel, Brokentalkers, Stacey Gregg, Michael West, Genevieve Hulme-Beaman and Kate Heffernan have all pitched in. Annabelle Comyn will direct a rehearsed reading of the Frankenstein script, with a top-billing cast of Niamh McCann, Kate Stanley Brennan and Declan Conlon.
