“[dropcap]L[/dropcap]ast week I did a show called ‘Beasts’ as part of Collaborations 2015 in Smock Alley- Collaborations is described as a ‘festival of ideas’, a safe place for creatives to showcase new work and where many of the shows can receive feedback in order to develop further. Beasts (Home You Go Productions) was written by Laura Murphy, directed by Colette Cullen and produced by Madeleine Roche. The show ran at 75 minutes.
There was a cast of five including Kathy Monahan, also from Frasers. The venue was the Smock Alleys’ main space, which seats 178. With the stage itself on the ground level and the seating levels going upwards on three sides, we had to pay special attention to our stage craft to make sure we were playing to the sides as well as the front.
Collaborations 2015 runs until the 7th March. For more information see http://collaborations.ie/
