Theatre tip: War of Attrition
As you may be aware, we’re big of Devious Theatre from Kilkenny. Their work is some of the best amateur theatre in the country and they’re bringing their latest show, War of Attrition, to the Dublin Fringe Festival next week.
“We’ve created the conditions for war, but no one wants to fight.” Daisy is the unwitting star of a viral video, Psycho Chugger, which currently sits on 178,234 YouTube views. And it’s ruining her life. Alan is the one who made it. A blogger who goes by the name of Generalissimo Malaise, he targets the ‘everyday arsehole’. Chris is a homeless man who just got caught in the crossfire of their feud. Devious Theatre bring their destructive new comedy to the streets of Dublin. There will be casualties.
The show is directed by Niamh Moroney, produced by Ken McGuire and stars John Doran, John Morton and Roseanna Purcell. It will be performed at Players Theatre, Trinity College from September 9th – 14th at 8.30pm nightly. Preview tickets for Monday are €10 and €13 for normal shows (OAP/Students €11). See ye there.
