100 MINUTES 2008

Dates: 04 Mar - 15 Mar

Tickets: €15

Ten plays. Ten actors. One stage.

100 Minutes 2008 brings together some of the freshest acting and directing talent in Ireland today to work with emerging playwrights from around the globe to create ‘ten new plays about now’.

From child prodigies to the trials of being a carer, taxis to taxes, extreme reality television to proposals at gunpoint, this ensemble production will explore modern life from ten widely variant angles. 100 Minutes 2008 gives you ten stories told by ten performers; ten moments plucked from twenty-first century Ireland; ten glimpses of the here and now.

An ensemble cast works together to present a fast-paced forum of contemporary theatre and exciting new writing in the third annual collection of ten new plays about now. 100 Minutes 2008 will engage with its provocative themes and entertain with its variety of approach.

“Any worries that short topical dramas might approach the times with a truncheon are defused by such deft handling of the scalpel… [100 Minutes 2007] abides by the best principle of showmanship: always leave them wanting more.”

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
