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

For those who wish to learn more about the piece and the production company behind the work, there will be a post-show discussion following the performance on 7th December.
