Rough Magic SEEDS present a new play by Hugh Travers

Talks and Readings


Dates: 12 Dec - 12 Dec

Show Time: 1.00pm

Rough Magic SEEDS present a rehearsed reading of Cardboard City by Hugh Travers, a new play developed under the SEEDS programme.

A teenage girl has been found on the streets of Dublin at the scene of an unspecified crime. Under arrest, she talks to a social worker who has been tasked with finding out how she got there; not the crime that was committed, but the life she lead. As the social worker investigates her records, the pivotal days leading up to this moment play out on the back streets of Dublin city, where those who make their beds on the streets, build their lives with cardboard instead of concrete.

Hugh Travers is a Dublin based playwright and screenwriter and is currently a participant on the 2012-2013 SEEDS Programme. His first play, Clear the Air, was presented at Theatre Upstairs earlier this year. Rough Magic presented a rehearsal reading of The Disappeared at Project Arts Centre during May. Most recently, his play LAMBO received a critically acclaimed run as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival and has been picked up by RTE for a radio broadcast in 2014.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…
