Moby Dick

Based on the novel Moby Dick by Herman Melville.

Renowned for their celebrated, hilarious Beckett prose productions, Gare St. Lazare Players Ireland take on one of the greatest novels ever written: Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Performed by Conor Lovett (Best Actor at 2010 Irish Times Theatre Awards) with musical accompaniment by Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh, this gripping solo performance follows Captain Ahab on his journey of revenge in pursuit of the titular white whale. Told from the perspective of Ishmael—who signs up on Ahab’s ship, The Pequod—this is an adventure story of biblical proportions. The Irish Examiner raves, “Moby Dick is a must-see. Lovett holds us spellbound as he captures the humor as well as the wisdom of Melville.”

This autumn, the Rural Touring Dance Initiative (RTDI) brings a mixed programme of new and returning dance works to rural locations across the UK. Local promoters are invited to select the show that best fits these unique venues by picking a dance work from a bespoke 'menu'. For autumn 2019, the RTDI menu features a visceral duet exploring love and relationships, virtuoso multi-performer juggling and a moving portrayal of what it's like to be d/Deaf in a world made for those who can hear. The RTDI provides people living in remote areas with the opportunity to see innovative, fresh and fierce contemporary dance on their own doorstep. Along with giving people who might otherwise not see professional dance the opportunity to do so, the scheme gives audiences the chance to see highly skilled dancers perform in intimate and often unorthodox settings. The initiative is a partnership between the National Rural Touring Forum, The Place, China Plate and Take Art.

William Shakespeare's rollicking and ever-popular comedy of mistaken identity, TWELFTH NIGHT, brings its magical combination of mischief, madness and romance into the outdoor amphitheater at Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum this summer where it plays in rep through September 28. Written in 1601 and first seen in the Inns of Court shortly after Christmas (hence, the title), the holiday was celebrated as a festival during which everything was made delightfully topsy-turvy, much like the world of the play's Illyria. And you could not ask for a more ideal cast of characters to bring The Bard's non-stop, high energy hijinks to life.
