Smock Alley Theatre, Wednesday 14th February – Saturday 3rd March 2018 We believe that Art is supposed to REACH its audience. We believe that it is the prerogative of the work to sometimes not work. We also believe that the AUDIENCE should be instrumental to the development of ART. Is is for that reason that Scene + Heard was born. A festival of New Work across Music, Theatre, Comedy, Dance and Spoken Word genres. We asked the ARTIST to bring their most original, thought provoking, funny and heart wrenching ideas to our stages to inspire our AUDIENCES and to encourage them to give HONEST feedback on the work in development that they see.
The Irish Premier of Daddy Long Legs The Musical. Starring Eoin Cannon (just off his run as Frank McCourt in Angela’s Ashes, the Musical) and Róisín Sullivan (best known for playing Adele Rice in the European premier of A Man of No Importance at The Arts Theatre on London’s West End). With Direction by Killian Collins and Musical Direction by David Wray. Based on the classic novel, which inspired the 1955 movie starring Fred Astaire, Daddy Long Legs is a beloved tale about Jerusha Abbott the “Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home” and her mysterious benefactor who decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she is never to know the benefactor’s identity – so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs.
