Description

A double bill of two of Enda Walsh’s best loved plays on the 20th Anniversary of Sucking Dublin.

Focusing on the two female protagonists, Runt & Little Lamb, this exciting new interpretation of Enda Walsh’s classics will explore the story from their perspectives – how they are trapped not only by their cities and social standing, but also bound by the men in their lives.

Reality:Check Productions team up again with Tracy Ryan to bring you a double bill with a new interpretation of these brilliant plays, like never before.

Description

Smock Alley was the first Theatre Royal built in Dublin. John Ogilby opened it in 1662 as part of the Restoration of the British monarchy and King Charles II in 1660, along with the London’s Drury Lane (1662) and the Lincoln’s Inn Fields (1661). It was the first custom-built theatre in the city and still remains in substantially the same form, making it one of the most important sites in European theatre history. Smock Alley Temple Bar Theatre was the first theatre outside London to receive the title of Theatre Royal, but because it had been built on land reclaimed from the Liffey, the building was unstable and the gallery collapsed twice; it was rebuilt in 1735.
