On Common Ground
To celebrate St Patrick's Day, Liverpool Hope University Drama and Theatre Studies students and members of the community are presenting two FREE one act plays with an Irish theme:
On Common Ground by A C Courtenay.
A piece of thought provoking theatre, addressing the politics, interrelationships and conditions of life in care. Here we see the struggles of immigration, compromise and a search for understanding. With everyone trying to find their own place, will they all be able to find a common ground?
Riders to the Sea by John Millington Synge.
The One Act Play Riders to the Sea was an important contribution to the Irish Literary revival. Premiered in Dublin in 1904, it explores the tragic power of the sea on island communities on the West Coast of Ireland. Synge, like his Spanish contemporary García Lorca, is noted for his rich poetic dialogue and his depiction of rural Ireland.
This performance will be a rehearsed reading of the play, directed by Niamh Malone, with a discussion contextualising the importance of the work of John Millington Synge and his contribution to Irish Theatre.
