County Wexford Youth Theatre - The Elephant In The Room

The Elephant In The Room devised by County Wexford Youth Theatre, dramaturged by Hannah McNiven

Teenage and child suicide are on the increase in Ireland over the past few years and no-one seems to wish to address the issue. This play devised by 25 members of County Wexford Youth Theatre and funded by the Arts Council attempts to address the reasons which could drive young people to feeling suicidal. CWYT has listened closely to our young members and promises to lift the lid on this ‘taboo’ subject within our society, opening up discussion between adults and young people. We all know it happens every day, we all know someone who is affected by it - but we seem to be unable to talk about the Elephant in the Room. Until now. Made possible through the Arts Council’s Young Ensemble Award.

Performances at 8pm on 24 - 26 April.

CIT Cork School of Music Youth Theatre - 11 Septembre 2001

CIT Cork School of Music Youth Theatre are performing 11 Septembre 2001 by Michel Vinaver with performances on 7th (Preview), 8th & 9th May.

Vinaver's 11 September 2001 is a libretto which features a polyphonic mingling of voices — victims, survivors, terrorists and national leaders from the tragic events surrounding 9/11. We hear the vibrant, tragic, last words of love and words that tell the impossibility of acting while there is still time, voices that still talk of regrets and hopes.

11 September 2001 will be performed in English with French. The young actors will explore the use of language to interpret the text and bring it to life in a visceral, exciting and memorable performance. Directed by Peadar Donohoe

Tickets: €12/€10.

7 - 9 May
Stack Theatre, Cork School of Music
