The M House – work-in-progress performance

Equinox Theatre Company presents a public performance of The M House work-in-progress on Wednesday 4th of May at 2.30 pm in the GB Shaw Theatre in Visual, Carlow, followed by an audience feedback session

 M house

The M house is an institution. But it’s also just a cube. A 6 foot x 6 foot by 6foot cube. Inside this cube live seven people.

Upstairs a committee of seven make decisions about the inhabitants of the M house.

…And then there’s Middleman. He’s the middle man in middle management. He’s the go-between, between the M house and Upstairs.

Here be Dragons

To all our KCAT Friends

Wonderful news!

Our very own Fintin Kelly – whom you might know from treading the boards with the Equinox Theatre Company – is mounting a one man show:

HERE BE DRAGONS!

Since January, Fintin has been working with fellow theatre professional Damian Punch to devise, improvise, explore and create a unique and special piece of multi-media theatre.

Fintin will be using both film and live action to tell his story that will be performed as part of the Abhainn Ri Festival (22nd -29th June Callan, Co. Kilkenny).

To help Fintin fund this theatrical endeavour we have set up a Fund It campaign. We are asking for €650 and this money will go toward costuming, technical operations, set and stage managing.

So now we send out a call to those who have supported us in the past to help us achieve our goal of reaching €650. This is an important piece of theatre, where we have two professionals collaborating to create innovative inclusive theatre and any help that we can receive will go a long way toward making this as accomplished as we know it deserves to be.

We don’t ask for something in return for nothing however! Fantastic rewards are available, free posters, free books and perhaps even the odd free ticket abound!

So for more details on the rewards, on the production or to donate money please visit:
