As Ireland begins to ease out of its lockdown, and as Irish theatre begins to look towards a new future, Fishamble is working with venues and festivals to produce live theatre again later this year, in a way that is safe for all its artists and audiences. In the meantime, Fishamble is proud to announce that it will be presenting a selection of #TinyPlayChallenge plays on 24th July. TINY PLAYS 24/7 will be presented online, it will be a combination of pieces performed on the O’Reilly Theatre stage and filmed, as well as multimedia pieces created digitally.
‘I am delighted that we will present performances during the first week that theatres can reopen, on 24/7, and for a week afterwards, of a small selection of Tiny Plays. We hope that this will share how people responded to the pandemic and the restrictions of the past three months, explore some solutions that theatre artists have been finding to stage work, and celebrate the very beginning of being back in theatre buildings for live, socially-distanced performances.’ – Jim Culleton, Artistic Director of Fishamble
