AN IRISH DRUG TRIP (THE WORLD IS GETTING BIGGER NOT SMALLER)
A performance lecture by Graham Ryall.
In 2009 THEATREclub sat in a room in Rialto for four hours with a man called Graham Ryall. He talked them through the last forty years of our history, through Community, Drugs, Politics, Society, Crime & Health. He told told them facts, jokes, stories and song lyrics and he told them with acute intelligence, empathy and heart.
It was this talk that inspired their critically acclaimed play HEROIN (Spirit of The Fringe Award winner in 2010). Not only did the talk inspire the show it also fundamentally changed how they viewed the world around them.
This talk is the first event in a brand new THEATREclub initiative- The world is getting bigger not smaller. It is about finding broader ways to think about the world around us and providing a space for ourselves and our audience to challenge our thinking about how we live now.
Graham has been giving this talk regularily for years, and everytime rehearsals start for HEROIN, he comes in and does it again and it never fails to inspire.
THEATREclub invite you to hear this talk too. Graham will go through our entire social history and take you on a trip that will blow your mind.
Expect your jaw to drop. Expect to be moved. Expect to be engaged. Expect to have all your questions answered. Expect to learn. Expect theatre.
Expect to laugh, and you might cry too.
The world is getting bigger, not smaller. See you there.
All proceeds go to future performances of HEROIN and workshops with drug users.
