DFR Theatre Night

Hello all,
As part of the Gay Theatre Festival we are planning a night out on Saturday 16 May. There is a double bill in the Players Theatre in Trinity College, The Astonished Heart by Noel Coward @ 19:30 followed by St. Joan @ 21:00. We will be meeting up in the Front Lounge afterwards, around 22:00 to discuss the merits of both plays in great detail. If you are interested in coming along please book your tickets.
Hopefully see you on the night.


THE ASTONISHED HEART

BEHIND THE MOON PRODUCTIONS, IRELAND
Gay playwright Noel Coward when asked why he didn’t ‘come out’ replied: ‘I didn’t want to offend other people’s prejudices’. He wrote sexually ambiguous plays. ‘The Astonished Heart’ stars a tormented psychiatrist, his wife, her friend in a toxic love affair that splinters their very existence. A raw and emotional journey through the landscape of repressed love and shattered illusions.

Behind the Moon Productions reveals the now eighty year old play, reclaiming Coward’s queer sensibilities in a stripped down, visually engaging and theatrically inventive presentation.

DURATION: 75mins
Contains scenes of a sexual nature.

Written by Noel Coward | Directed by Geoff O’Keeffe


ST. JOAN

PASCAL THEATRE COMPANY/MANYTRACKS/ADD2PRODUCTIONS
Three women are Joan. All trying to save history from itself. This is a highly physical, darkly funny and entrancing work of theatre.

An exhilarating delve into the heady themes of national identity, purity of race, women as victims and makers of history asks – ‘would Joan the girl fighter, with the voices of God in her head, really boot out the foreigners today’? She challenges the view that only a dead saint is a useful saint and dreams of going back in time to stop history’s atrocities. Can she overturn its course? Can she save one life?

DURATION: 55mins
Written by Julia Pascal | Directed by Katrin Hilbe
