Under My Bed will run at Smock Alley Theatre from March 12th to 14, with all proceeds going to Barnardos Ireland.
There are a wide rand of well known Irish Personalities involved, each creating a piece inspired by their childhood; which are then woven into a patchwork of 5 minute performances. Sounds like a lot of fun, and all in aid of a good cause. This is where Joe Prop started last year, which we loved, so fingers crossed there will be something equally as exciting this year.
Full details can be found on the Smock Alley Website here.
Under my Bed invites well-known people from all walks of life to tell us what was under their bed as a child. These stories are then woven into a patchwork of childhood stories, presented by either themselves, or some of Ireland’s most talented actors. Other confirmed participants include: Author Carmel Harrington, Musician Mick Hanly, DJ Ruth Scott, Academy Award nominated studio Cartoon Saloon, Actress Alison McGirr (Home and Away; Penny Dreadful) in a piece written by husband Sam Atwell (‘Kane’ from Home and Away), former Prison Governor John Lonergan, Aisling O’Neill (Fair City) in a piece by Gemma Doorly (Fair City), Broadcaster and writer Barbara Scully, Academic Ed Walsh (University of Limerick), and Photographer/Actor Brendan Burke.
Under My Bed was created by Amy Dawson, and Karen Lee. The 2015 event is produced by Amy Dawson, Emily Elphinstone, and Eimear Morrissey.
