Roscommon County Youth Theatre - Too Fast

              

RCYT present Too Fast by Douglas Maxell, directed by Catherine Sheridan. 

We see a dysfunctional group of teenagers as they gather to sing at the funeral of a school friend. What happens? Teenage relationships, inclusion and exclusion, guilt and forgiveness, obsession, manipulation and reconciliation, the loss of a friend. The play makes us think about appreciating others who are different from ourselves, how we celebrate a life and our ideas of life after death. 

Sensation Nation is a vocal group founded and led by the unstoppable DD. Her grand plan is for the group to storm next year's X Factor. But first they need a gig, and more importantly a heartbreaking backstory that will win them votes later on down the line. So she's booked them in to sing at a funeral. And not just any funeral either. Sensation Nation is to sing at the funeral of Ali Monroe, an older girl from their school who was killed in a car crash. 

Too Fast is an ensemble comedy for young performers with a strong emotional heart and a huge theatrical reveal in the final scene. It was originally produced as part of National Theatre Connections 2011.

LYTC - Carrick on Shanon: Cloud Busting

Cloud Busting, written by Helen Brakeman, follows the life of teenager Sam, who is expecting to experience just another ordinary day - but it all changes when his class are asked by their schoolteacher to write a poem about somone they care about. 

Unexpectedly, Sam decides to write about his friend Davey..... Davey was Sam's friend, not that Sam wanted anyone to know that. While the cool girls in the class thought Davey was well cute in a sad-dog sort of way, the tough boys - Alex and his crew - just saw Davey as different. Davey liked to dance. Davey liked to look at the clouds and see the shapes they made. Davey liked looking at the world in a different way to everybody else. But no matter how much Sam liked being with Davey, he always denied their friendship. Today, he has to decide whether to show his true feelings or hide them when the bullying his friend is subjected to begins to boil over. But will Sam step in to help his friend?
