Project Arts Centre presents

Talks and Readings


Dates: 24 Sep - 24 Sep

Show Time: 11:00pm

Space Upstairs

By Pom Boyd presented as part of ABSOLUT Fringe 2011


Revolutionary Texts a series of reading which aim to draw attention to plays from the late 1980s and 1990s, that are political in content and experimental in form which might be unfamiliar to our younger audience members.  Four such plays will be given public readings and directed by some of Ireland’s best emerging talent.

Joey, the much loved daughter, arrives home to Dublin airport where she is met by parents Julie and Frank, a dream couple of the ’60s who have since fallen on leaner times, and her brother Shane, the clever child turned no-hoper.  At the airport, they meet Chris Farrell, a blast from the past, a lonely alcoholic who has been stripped of his pilot wings and is looking for an antidote to numbness. Back at the Fox homestead dissatisfaction is added to old wounds and large quantities of duty-free, as Joey’s long-awaited return begins to shatter what’s left of the family idyll.

Duration 120 mins

There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
