It's Back...


Fast & Loose 2014

Saturday 4th October 2014

Lyric Theatre, Naughton Studio

Tickets £5 (plus booking fee)

Box Office: 028 9038 1081

Returning to the Lyric for its third year, we're ecstatic to announce that Fast & Loose is back. Four new mini-plays are written overnight in this twenty-four hour play project. A bold and often breathless experiment in playmaking and inspiring creativity, all housed in the Lyric over twenty-four hours. From 9pm on a Friday night, four playwrights have only 12 hours to craft a new short play. At 9am the following day four directors and casts have a further 12 hours to rehearse the plays, which premier that very night in the Lyric's Naughton Studio. Drama doesn't come any fresher. 

The results are often unpredictable, unique and uplifting, showcasing some of the finest theatre and creative artists working in Northern Ireland today. 

 
Loved it. Brave, bold, funny and engaging...

Just before rehearsals started for our latest show The Kitchen, the Bedroom and the Grave Elizabeth sat down with the writer Donal O'Hagan and director Richard Lavery to chat about were the show came from, what were some of their favourite moments to look out for. 

DRAMATURG INTERVIEW

As we work on our latest show we took time out to talk to Emily, our Dramaturg Fellow, supported by the BBC Performing Arts Fund. Asking her about what she thinks about her work, the show and the support that the BBC Fellowship has given her this year.

The Kitchen, the Bedroom & the Grave

Written by Donal O'Hagan

Directed by Richard Lavery

Up-and-coming journalist Dempsey loves his London life – but is suddenly shipped home to Belfast to make a documentary on the changing face of good ol' Norn Iron.

A Christmas visitor at best, Dempsey has his fingers crossed for a quick job and a leap up the career ladder. But his parents (Tom and Martha) and his oldest school buddy (Mark) have their own agendas for him, and soon Dempsey is forced out from behind his camera.     

O’Hagan’s stage debut is a multimedia exploration of homecoming that rips into ideas about family and identity, and asks how far can a person be the author of their own life. With a superb cast, starring Maggie Cronin best known for her role in the BBC's long-running daytime drama Doctors and Academy award winning short film The ShoreCillian O'Sullivan, currently starring in 6DegreesNoel Magee from BBC production Betrayal of Trust, and upcoming Lyric Theatre actor Jason McLaughlin.
