Dose – A Rehearsed Reading

News

As part of Culture Night 2021 Eva’s Echo presents a rehearsed reading of Dose, featuring actors from three countries performing together through the wonders of digital theatre. Join us at 7.30pm on September 17th from the comfort of your own home.

Following its inclusion in IDGTF’s anthology Play’s Inside and a short digital performance on Dublin Pride’s Pride Player playwright Rena Bryson began developing her short play Dose into a full-length script. The new dramedy explores toxic family dynamics, mental health issues, and struggles unique to Queer relationships.

The rehearsed reading of Act 1 gives audiences early access to the work in progress and the opportunity to give their own feedback or ask the cast or playwright questions at a Q and A following the performance.

This project is supported by Galway City Council.

Casting Call

News

Auditions were completed on August 6th 2021.

We are so delighted to announce auditions for our upcoming production It’s True I Love You All So Much by Jenni Nikinmaa. This production is a piece of digital theatre, this makes casting especially exciting as anyone with decent WIFI, a webcam and a mic can apply from anywhere in the world.

The Play

It’s True I Love You All So Much is a new and innovative piece of interactive digital theatre. The audience watching is in front of their screens, disconnected from each other and disconnected from the performance, performer, and the stage, which are the same thing, the screen. The audience is part of the process, the part that is watching how self-harm and madness perform themselves. The audience engages several times throughout the performance via completing surveys, attending zoom calls and clicking on animations that progress the performance.  The performance explores family dynamics, self harm, mental health and love through text that is both blunt and poetic in its delivery. 

The Cast

We are looking for actors and voice actors of

  • Any gender
  • Any ethnicity
