Description

"Peter Duffy Productions presents :

A work-in-progress take and taste of Trilogy - "The State of Us" - Three Great Writers - Kavanagh (50th anniversary), Dostoyevsky, Carleton- Three Great Pieces of Writing - The Great Hunger, The Grand Inquisitor, Wildgoose Lodge - Three one man shows*. To include an introduction to the idea and evolution of the Trilogy, and to briefly introduce and perform excerpts from each piece. The approach will be informal, informative and performative using minimum tech/props and allowing for questions and responses from the audience. The Trilogy is scheduled for full production in Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin, in November. The Great Hunger, a long poem adapted for stage, already performed in Galway, all over Ireland and abroad to popular and critical success. The Grand Inquisitor is from the 5th chapter of Dostoyevsky’s great Russian novel The Brothers Karamazov. It tells the story of Jesus returning to 16th century spain, why the Grand Inquisitor has him arrested and intends to burn him at the stake the next day.Wildgoose Lodge concerns the worst atrocity of 19th century Ireland (1816), more people executed as a result than 1916, at least half of whom were innocent, yet few know anything about it. Why and what is the true story ? “The Murders at Wildgoose Lodge, Carleton, and Me” by Peter Duffy will investigate these events and more recent and contemporary relevance. *GI - one other non speaking actor on stage."
