Kind Words Spoken

“…funny, sharp, relevant and delivered with panache” Una Mullally, The Irish Times “An Easter Rising / Wikileaks mash up … the bang-on zeitgeistsy script is backed up by excellent use of live technology, and a completely believable spiralling chain of events.” Susan Conley, Irish Theatre Magazine

Daisy is an unwitting internet celebrity, the ‘Psycho Chugger’ whose video currently has 178, 234 views on Youtube – it is ruining her life.

Alan, a blogger by the name of Generalissimo Malaise who claims to target the ‘everyday arsehole’, is the one who made it.

And Chris, well he just got caught in the crossfire.

There will be casualties when a nasty game of one-upmanship descends into a relentless war. War Of Attrition is a destructively comic thriller that takes you from parties on the streets of Dublin to the darkest parts of the internet where revolution is brewing.

Devious Theatre Company was founded in Kilkenny in 2006. The company works across a number of genres but stays rooted in a style of comedy that it has developed over the years. In 2011 they became the first theatre artists in residence in Kilkenny Arts Office and have also won a PPI Award for Radio Drama. Their work has featured at Cork Midsummer Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival, Galway Theatre Festival among others and they previously presented work at Project Arts Centre as part of  TEXT | Messages and The Theatre Machine Turns you On.

War Of Attrition was first performed as part of Dublin Fringe Festival 2013 where it received four star reviews and a Fringe Award nomination for Best Female Performer. A successful run at Galway Theatre Festival in October 2013 followed.
