lend their voices to

Gary Duggan's radio play Country

Future Tense consists of five pieces devised by Backstage Youth Theatre members that are interconnected by the theme of confinement. Using film, text and live music, this is an original performance for the COVID age that will be presented on 26 and 27 September. Audience members wind their way through various spaces of Longford's Backstage Theatre. Keep an eye on www.backstage.ie for ticket info.

Members have also recently finished lending their voices to a radio production of Gary Duggan’s Country. The play was inspired by the world of Shakespeare and fairy tales, and it tells the story of a family, seven girls and one boy, who live in a magical forest. The repercussions of a car crash reveal an edgy tale of hidden desires, power struggles and the effects of confinement, full of surprises and shrouded in secrets. The finished product will receive its radio broadcast premiere via Shannonside FM radio on Halloween night, 31 October.

Limerick Youth Theatre for Culture Night 2020

Limerick Youth Theatre

presents

Soapbox

for Culture Night 2020

Director: Shane Hickey-O'Mara.
Creative Team: Emily Waters, Luke Frawley, Kerrie Ahern, Francesca Walshe, Ellie McCarthy, and Maria Jablonska

Soapbox is a project born of necessity and unbridled stubbornness! When COVID scuppered their plans for the annual Limerick Youth Theatre Summer Production, LYT  developed a unique idea! With 30 young artists and a cracking creative team. they decided to embark on a venture that combines verbatim/documentary theatre with a large-scale Story Exchange! Inspired by the work of Narrative 4, and via Zoom & WhatsApp, LYT shared their beliefs, frustrations, and personal stories through the framework of the 15 Departments of the Irish Government. Given that every aspect of Irish life is overseen by these Departments, it proved the ideal structure to get an all round view of the lives of Limerick artists aged 16 to 19. Through stories that made the personal political, and vice-versa, Limerick Youth Theatre has created a documentary that acts as a time capsule of Limerick Youth during one of the most tumultuous periods of Irish History. Uniquely, the young artists do not perform their own responses to each Department; instead they harness their empathy and step into each other's shoes: an act that has simultaneously strengthened their community and challenged them creatively!
