THE NUI Galway Jerome Hynes One Act Play series, part of NUIG Theatre Week, will see eight new plays performed tomorrow from 6pm in the Cube Theatre, Áras na Mac Léinn.
The eight plays are Anachrome by Mark Leahy, about a boy with suicidal tendencies and parents ill-equipped to deal with this; Ballymahon Gospel by Hannah Carleton, about two sisters, an absentee mother, and the grim reaper; Champ by Robin Oree, about hapless drug dealers Top Man and Rudy whose meagre income barely funds their curry chip diet; Coathanger by Martin Keaveney explores the strange world of C and the people who visit him; Headcut by Alan McDonagh explores self-obsession, introspection, and internal conflict.
Sean Scully’s Neighbors is a light-hearted physical comedy about two women, each of whom needs, rather than enjoys, the company of the other. Hannah McNiven’s Dot looks at two drug pushers who have a problem; while Sorcha O’Mahony’s So You Wanna Solve Crimes? introduces Alex and Freddie, two seasoned cops, who can teach you all you need to know when investigating murder.
The plays will be followed by adjudication and announcement of the winning play which will be performed as part of the Galway Theatre Festival. Tickets are €10/8 from the SocsBox, NUIG, or through 091 - 402852. See also nuigdramsoc.wix.com/theatreweek15
