THE MAKING OF ‘TIS PITY SHE’S A WHORE

A film director assembles a cast and crew to film the darkly comic and brilliantly horrific play Tis Pity She’s a Whore, John Ford’s Jacobean Masterpiece. What ensues is the recreation, on a contemporary film set, of this story of forbidden love, lust and obsession.

Through Ford’s vivid characters the classic tale begins to resonate with the actors and crew on the set and as the boundaries of these two worlds blur reality, fantasy, life and art collide with disastrous results. With a combination of live and filmed scenes this innovative re-imagining is vividly brought to life by a stellar cast including: on stage – Cathy Belton, Barbara Brennan, Kate Stanley Brennan, Phelim Drew, Louis Lovett; on film – Lorcan Cranitch, Simon Delaney, Tom Hickey, John Kavanagh, Paul Reid; and the crew – Rosin Agnew, Cara Christie, Isadora Epstein, Manus Halligan, Ian Kinane, Liam McCarthy, Meadhbh McHugh, Doireann O’Byrne

Influenced by the works of filmmakers from Fellini to Lynch The Making of ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore is directed by The Irish Times Irish Theatre Award-winner, Director Selina Cartmell.

“Selina Cartmell is the most radical presence in our theatre world” The Dubliner

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. 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.…

LOCKDOWN LETTERS

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…
