NORAMOLLYANNALIVIALUCIA (The Muse & Mr. Joyce)
Presented by Curlew Theatre Company, written and directed by Eamon Grennan and performed by Tegolin Knowland. This play will also be performed in June as part of Bloomsday Celebrations 2016 at Howth Castle Co. Dublin, The National Library of Ireland Kildare St. Dublin and for The Dept of Foreign Affairs in The Hague Holland.
The Curlew Theatre Company perform ‘plays-for-voices’ devised, written, and directed by Eamon Grennan. Each of these takes a crucial element in Irish history and explores it in depth. The duration of each of these pieces in performance is about an hour. The aim of the group is to produce performance pieces that rely almost solely on text and voice. With only two actors (playing many voices), a minimum of props, and not much stage “business,” these dramatic pieces explore in an immediate way their chosen subjects, seeking to bring everything down to a close, even intimate relationship between players and audience. By so doing, the issues (big, small, historical, political, personal), gain a recognisable human face and, most important–in the constant flow of talk, of language – an intensely human sound.
