Darren Donohue’s Dayshift follows the adventures of a certain Mr. Day as he takes up a new position within a vast, complex organisation. But from the moment he awakes, he appears out of harmony with both his surroundings and the people he encounters. As he struggles to understand the inner workings of the organisation, we’re drawn into an innovative re-imagining of modern Ireland and the high cost of its value system.
Darren Donohue is an award-winning Irish playwright and poet. His plays have been produced in Dublin, London, Edinburgh, Barcelona, Milan, Prague, Baltimore, Washington DC and New York. Eva’s Echo are very excited to bring his work to Galway audiences for the first time.
Hazel Doolan was back in the director chair for the first time since staging Match, Eva’s Echo’s debut play, which won the company the Best Emerging Artists award at the Galway Fringe in 2017. The production was performed by Rena Bryson, Sarah Jane Woods, Rickie O’Neill, Micheal O’ Fearraigh and Conor O’Dwyer in the leading role as Mr. Day. Galway theatre maker Sabrina Kelleher was excited to work with Eva’s Echo again, designing and stage managing Dayshift. Lighting design and operation was by Elizabeth Flaherty.
Dayshift was performed in the Town Hall Theatre Studio at 8.30pm on the 5th and 6th of November.
