More Rehearsed Readings…

I was delighted to be involved with The Corps Ensemble’s New Writing Night on Sunday last at the Viking theatre in Clontarf.

Rehearsed readings of new plays are simply a fantastic way for writers to learn their craft and improve their work. Other writers hearing their work read were Hillary Dziminski, Stewart Roche and Stephen Jones and Jed Murray (below).

They are also a great way for writers, producers, directors and actors to meet, and for writers to observe a real, live audience’s reaction to their work. It certainly beats coercing your non-actor friends into readings around the kitchen table on Saturday nights! (And those gigs are EXPENSIVE when you factor in the wine-bribery required…)

Check out some of the cast at work in front of a packed audience…

 

…and watch out for The Corps Ensemble’s production of Mark O’Rowe’s Made in China – coming to a theatre near you next month…
