Audition for Latte

News

We are so delighted to announce auditions for our upcoming production Latte by Sarah Fahy. This production is a site-specific performance that will be performed at The Secret Garden Cafe.

The Play

We’ve all done it, eavesdropping. You’re in a café, the couple at the next table, what is their relationship? First date? Related? Colleagues? This exciting new play by Sarah Fahy shows you a sneak peek into the lives of other cafe customers while they sip their lattes. It is a slice of life in contemporary Ireland exploring many modern issues. We are such complicated beings, two regular individuals having a coffee may not be what they seem!

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.

  • Any gender
