Dublin By Lamplight

Playwright
Michael West
Season 7: 2010-2011
American Premiere
Ireland

Amidst the filth and fury of 1904 Dublin, the theatrical event of the century is about to explode. Will the Irish National Theatre of Ireland seize its chance for glory? Fading stars, rebels, whores, and romantics irreverently expose the strange and lurid world of Dublin by Lamplight. Our cast of  six portray 40 different characters in this fast-paced tale about the launch of the Irish National Theatre. The style is presentational: a mixture of Vaudeville, American Story Theatre (in which the characters narrate their stories directly to the audience in third person), and Commedia dell’Arte (though the traditional masks of Commedia dell’Arte are replaced here with stylized make-up).
