The History of the World @ 3am – a play about dreams, borders and nightmares

A border post in some forgotten corner of some unmentionable state is guarded by Oddie O’Dea, and the events of this play happen at a time when people are asleep or dreaming or having nightmares. But Oddie is awake, and he guards his border post with resignation, as he is powerless to control the comings and goings, which might be a scavenger, a dummy, a dunce, a pregnant woman, a dancer, a singer, a secret operative, a prisoner, a sniper. But time stands still and for Oddie it will always be 3am, no matter what happens in the world around him.

Casting: Nabiha Lecoq, John Ruddy, Guy Carleton, and Ari.

A multi-ethnic cast of actors, singers and dancers will bring to life the events of this play using multi-media, music and imagery.

Written and directed by Joe O’Byrne, Choreography by Emily Kilkenny Roddy, Musical Direction by Sean Millar.

A co-production between Co-Motion Media and The Five Lamps Arts Festival.

The Quiet Tree is a magical traditional music, storytelling, and puppetry performance for young children and their families.

Age range: 2-5

Love in the wild by Lisa Walsh

Ger Duffy is a dreamer. He mostly dreams about Grainne McManus. There is a hole in his heart from the day she disappeared out of his life. That was five years ago, when they were lovers and addicts together.

One day, Grainne’s Da turns up at Ger’s hall door in Ballymun. Ger assumes that she’s dead; that she has become another statistic to heroin. But the news is different and lights the flame of hope in Ger’s heart.

LOVE IN THE WILD is an emotional roller-coaster of a play that will make you laugh and will leave you, finally, in tears.

“Lisa Walsh has put human faces, emotions and dreams into the stories that lie behind the headlines” – Joe Duffy, RTE.
