Three Figures At A Well by Peter Hussey, Revelations
and Waiting For Johno by Darren Donohue (premieres, Riverbank,
12th 16th February 2002)
Sucking Stones was the second instalment in our series
of anti-sentimental plays, the first having been presented as
Numb: plays without feeling in October 2001.
Three Figures at a Well Three people find themselves
at a well in the countryside at various stages in their lives.
From there they address the audience. Loosely inspired by Beckett's
Play, this short piece consists of the monologues of two women
and a man, which interweave to tell a shared story of love, obsession
and redemption. With Anna Swords-Murphy, Hazel Coyle and
Eric Higgins. Directed by Peter Hussey. Designed by
Waiting for John-O Set in a Kildare urban landscape,
this play discovers two twenty-something year olds hanging out,
passing the time, waiting for their friend Johnno to bring them
to a party. Their banter is interrupted by the arrival of the
pompous Mark and his girlfriend Mary, a silent but deeply strange
individual who entertains and perturbs the men in equal measure.
With Nick Devlin, Steve Gunn, Yvonne ” Hara and
Laurence Hamill. Directed by Darren Donohue. Designed
by CiarŠn Aspell.
Revelations Inspired by Endgame this lyrical play
concerns the reminiscences of a chair-bound old man who is attended
by another old man, his keeper. They have lived in poverty and
want for years, never leaving their rooms, ignorant and fearful
of the outside world, which eventually burst in upon them in the
form of a third, younger man. With Conal Boyce, Nick
Devlin and Darren Donohue. Directed by Peter Hussey.
Designed by CiarŠn Aspell.
