Talks and Readings / Theatre / 12-12 December 2013


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.
