If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You
A new Irish play at the Old Red Lion Theatre in Islington, North London’s
August 30-September 24.
By John O’Donovan, who writes:
Set entirely on the roof of a house in Ennis [Co Clare], If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You tells the story of a night in the burgeoning love and relationship between two troubled young men, Mikey, 24, originally from Ennis, and Casey, 18, originally from Croydon [South London[
Mikey and Casey have been on the rob all day; now there’s a party to get to and they have everything they need . . . Booze. Cash. Drugs. Each other.
The only problem is they’re stuck. Stuck on a roof. Stuck together. And as they wait for the Guards to stop circling the house, they find out there are some truths you just can’t climb down from.
Of his new play, Frame 37, Aidan Fitzmaurice writes:
Frame 37 is part of the upcoming Scene and Heard Festival in Smock Alley Theatre [6/7 Exchange Street Lower, Dublin 8]. Frame 37 is about pool. About people playing pool. About people playing pool and coming to terms with the fact that they’re merely scripted characters in a play about pool. It’s not really about pool. But there is a pool table.
Fair balls, in fairness.
A whole day.
The perfect stocking filler for the thespian lover close your heart.
Phillip Mc Mahon writes:
The 24 HOUR PLAYS DUBLIN is an annual event that raises much needed funds for Dublin Youth Theatre. Over 24 hours, 50 artists and theatre makers come together to write, rehearse and perform six brand new short plays. It’s a riot, and makes for a very unique night out. The event takes place on February 1st at the Abbey Theatre for one night only.

Just wondering if any chance you could do a shout out for my comedy group Ghost Train Willy’s show this week? It’s called Rhubarb Crumble – it’s on in The Civic Theatre [Tallaght, D24] tonight and runs until this Saturday 29th November at 8:15pm. Tickets here.
It’s the comedy tale of a second-rate children’s theatre company, whose members all fantasise about the lives they could have led had they not been held back by each other.
Your analogies are invited.

[Grace Dyas, Louise Donlon, Mike Fitzpatrick, Sheila Deegan, Lauren Larkin and Louise Lewis in Dalgaish Park, Moyross, Limerick this week]
Dublin’s THEATREclub has been working with people living in Moyross, Limerick to create a theatre piece called Moyross.
Rapper Nathan Keane, 19 – whose song [written with Calvin McNamara], was the subject of recent controversy when former CEO of Limerick City of Culture Patricia Ryan requested that the lyrics be changed – is taking part in the production.
Grace Dyas of THEATREclub told Limerick Leader:
“The idea is that there is as much talent in Moyross as there is under the Hollywood sign. When I first got here I thought there was such a difference between the public perception about what this place is and what it really is. I thought, wouldn’t it be great to try and do something truthful, the reality of people’s experience here – and the only way to do that is to give them the voice themselves, give the stage over to them.”
Moyross will take place at the Lime Tree Theatre in Limerick from April 30 to May 3, as part of the Limerick City of Culture festival.
