Review 2017: The Possible / Strange Fruit / The Morning After

FESTIVAL REVIEW: Three short plays by Momentum Acting studio, Players TCD 7.30pm Saturday matinee 2.30pm. Pioneering gay playwright Neil La Bute’s two shorts combine seemlessly with Neil CK’s piece in a well choreographed and blended 70 minutes evening of theatre directed by Liza Michael and Robbie Byrne. “The Possible” is an eerie piece which borderlines […]

Review 2016: Word Play

Festival review: Word Play This high speed zany comedy from Canada is infectious. Our two young attractive characters Jess and Nick are feckless, lazy and full of themselves – like a next generation ‘Will and Grace’ friendship. They hate their workplace an all night restaurant with a pretty gross clientele. They do a certain amount

Review – Away from Home

‘Away From Home’ takes on another taboo – the premier league- in the Players Theatre at Trinity College. This well-produced one man show reveals the secrets of complex masculinity in ‘the beautiful game’ in a seemingly honest portrayal of contemporary sporting life.

Review – Tits Up

‘Tits Up’ is the gloriously politically incorrect, predictable comedy contribution from the ever popular ‘Acting Out’ LGBT community drama group that continues to power ahead. It is good to see this form of theatre being included in the programme for 2014. There was quite a subdued audience on Monday night and it is essential with

Review – Eirebrushed

‘Eirebrushed’ by Brian Merriman is a controversial and challenging piece of theatre that takes a lot of cultural taboos and shakes them to their core. It is what a gay theatre festival is about, if it is to assert a mainstream relevance. This moving, provocative story invites Pearse, Casement, Gore Booth and O’Farrell back to
