Theatre: The Living Room

Fledging theatre company Outlandish Theatre have been in touch to give us a head’s up about their debut production ‘The Living Room’. Based on the ancient tale Bluebeard (which scared the bejaysus out of at least one member of the Culch.ie team as a child) it’s being performed in a ‘Georgian living room space’ at the Pearse Centre on Pearse Street and it’s happening from Mon 15th – Sun 21st of August at 8 pm, Matinees Thur/Sat/Sun at 2pm.

The official blurb goes:

“Story-telling is Mother Maria’s religion. Maria believes that the power of ‘Bluebeard’, an ancient Eastern European folk tale about sexual curiosity and the loss of innocence, will keep her daughter Lena from marrying Sebastian and ensure she stays with her forever. All Daughter Lena wants is to escape from her mother’s reign. Every night at 12 pm ‘story-time’ begins and the  battle between the old and the new, and the eternal powers of fear, guilt and survival is re-opened.”

We reckon it’s worth checking out!
