Presented by Una McKevitt
as part of First Fortnight Festival
565+ is about survival. There comes a time in all our lives when we look for help, when we reach crisis, when we will try anything that helps. For some it is therapy, for others it is medication. For Marie O’Rourke it is the theatre. Marie O’Rourke is a school teacher who began attending the theatre seven years ago on the advice of her doctor. Since then she has seen over 565 plays. Marie credits the theatre with saving her life.
What the critics thought:
“McKevitt and her compatriots have crafted a piece of theatre that artfully celebrates the everyday and finds unexpected resonance in the simplest of exchanges” Irish Theatre Magazine on Victor and Gord.
565+ – Una McKevitt is part of Project Catalyst, a Project Arts Centre initiative. 2 OCT 7PM – Post Show Discussion: Talking Theatre: Marie O’Rourke & Una McKevitt in conversation. For more information on Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival or to see the full programme of events vist their website.
