8 Days of Drama┬┐

24th November 2011: The DIT Drama Society presents 8 Days of Drama! Every production stars DIT students, and they are also directed and produced by the society.

First up is Women and Wallace, by Jonathon Marc Sherman, directed by Louise McLoughlin. The play moves back in time to present memorable moments in the life of Wallace, now a handsome young man of eighteen, as he copes with growing up after finding his mother dead from suicide at the age of six. Women and Wallace runs for three nights, the 28th, 29th and 30th November.


Then on Thursday 1st December, we present the One Act Festival. The One Act productions give freshers to drama a chance to get on stage with the society for the first time and showcase their talent. Our evening of short plays include a variety of pieces directed by Kevin Donnellan, Siobhan McGuire and John May. The money raised from the One Act Festival will be going towards to DIT Christmas Appeal, and the price of a ticket is 5 euro.

The second full-length production is a Long Day's Journey into Night, by Eugene O'Neill, directed by Conor Moloney. The action covers a fateful, heart-rending day from around 8:30 am to midnight, in August 1912 at the seaside Connecticut home of the Tyrones. In this play, Eugene O'Neill gives us an unashamedly honest insight into his explosive homelife, dysfunctional family, and tackles the issue of addiction head on. Long Day's Journey Into Night will be performed on the 5th, 6th and 7th of December.

We end our 8 days with a table quiz in the Living Room, Cathal Brugha Street, on Thursday 8th December. All students are welcome, with a table of four costing 10 euro. The quiz will be hosted by DITSU President Ciarán Nevin and be followed by music from No Way Home in their Christmas gig.

All productions will take place in the Black Box Theatre in the basement of Aungier Street and start at seven o'clock. Both Women and Wallace and Long Day's Journey Into Night cost 5 euro for adults and 3 for students. Contact drama@socs.dit.ie for more information.
