One For Sorrow by Mary Kelly and Noni Stapleton
Doreen, a young woman playing catch-up on life, finally freed from the clutches of her small town family, moves to Dublin. Expectations are rampant and grievances raw. She encounters a myriad of characters and ghosts from the past, ranging from the wildly humorous to the absurdly familiar.
Mary Kelly and Noni Stapleton, founders of Skipalong Theatre Company, co-wrote and produced One for Sorrow and its sequel Two for a Girl.
Bad Sunday by Mark Wale
Think Commedia dell’Arte, think Marx Brothers, think Ariane Mnouchkine, think Steven Berkoff, think Warner Brothers cartoons. If you can. If you can’t, don’t think at all.
Mark Wale studied mime with Etienne Decroux in Paris and film at CECC in Barcelona. Bad Sunday was written for The Little Sisters of Tragedy. The play received a Society of Irish Playwrights O. Z. Whitehead award in 1999.
