“A Little Cloud” – adapted as a one act play by Patricia Browne
James Joyce’s short story, ‘A Little Cloud’, which first appeared in Dubliners in 1914, has been cleverly contemporized and adapted for theatre in this one act, promenade play. As the audience moves around from one space to another, taking in the action, we follow the journey of Little Chandler, as he meets an old school friend, re-awakening the exuberant aspirations of his youth. Inspired by his friend’s success, Little Chandler attempts to re-kindle the creative impulses he’s long suppressed. Will Little Chandler have the courage to be a writer or will he let his, ‘unfortunate timidity’ as he calls it, continue to dog and define his life? Judder Theatre at Doyle’s pub, situated at College Green welcomes you to this new, dramatic and dynamic adaptation starring Steve Gunn (Fair City) and Vincent Patrick (The Clinic).
Eveline” – adapted as a one act play by Patricia Browne
“She sat at the window watching the evening invade the avenue. Her head was leaned against the window curtains, and in her nostrils was the odour of dusty cretonne.” Eveline is sitting in her home, saying goodbye to all that is familiar to her – her home, her family, Dublin - her entire world. She is leaving for Buenos Aires on the night boat with her fiancé and in saying goodbye, she shares with the audience precious memories of her simple life – at times funny, painful and poignant. Joyce’s short story, ‘Eveline’ has been adapted as a one act, one woman show. It is a story that compels us to contemplate how a sense of belonging is deeply rooted in place, and duty. Join Judder Theatre at Doyle’s pub, located on College Green for this moving production starring Romana Testasecca as Eveline.
