Brenda Brooks in Cloudspotter as part of the Five Lamps Festival.
Due to the success of the show the production followed on with a run at the Viking Theatre. Stay tuned for further venues and dates.
We believe passionately that bringing people together is a key part of arts and culture, a passion shared with our talented friends in Allergy Theatre Productions. The result of our latest collaboration is a fresh new play for the Dublin stage, The Cloudspotter. Rebellious teenager Thomas lives with his grandmother, Nan, who with the onset of dementia is resisting family attempts to move her away from her grandson and into a home. As the play unfolds both characters soon learn that their love and mutual respect allows them to meet everything life throws at them. School students and older folks from all parts of Dublin will form the audiences for two performances per day of, The Cloudspotter by Michael Harnett, in April and May at the Seán O’Casey Theatre , Dublin 3, and the Axis Ballymun and later discuss and break down the issues raised onstage. Lines are learned, and rehearsals are already under way. Watch this space for cast details and further updates!
