DIT / The Conservatory of Music and Drama present John Steinbeck's



Dates: 27 Feb - 01 Mar

Show Time: 8.00pm

Tickets: €15 - €12 (Wednesday 26 February - all tickets just €10!)

Steinbeck’s award winning novel, THE GRAPES OF WRATH is faithfully adapted by Frank Galati (of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company, and winner of a Tony award for best play) and presented by the Graduates of DIT’s BA in Drama (Performance). The DIT graduates, directed by Mark Lambert, infuse this play with energy and enthusiasm, and make full use of their training in movement, dance, singing and acting to present THE GRAPES OF WRATH in a compelling and compassionate production.

The epic story of a farming family driven off their land by the banks and forced to migrate is as poignant and relevant today as it was when written in the 1930’s. Looking for work, trying to survive, experiencing human cruelty and compassion, the Jode family’s struggle is universal.  They travel Route 66 from Oklahoma to California, in a beat-up truck, looking for the Promised Land, fiercely holding the family together. They seek justice in a decent wage for an honest days work. This adaptation uses music from the 30’s and imaginative settings to create the atmosphere of the “dust bowl” and the “great depression” and the people who lived and died under its cloud.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
