I’m Not Here - THEATREclub

Doireann is here and she wants to check if a few things are working.
She’s going to be doing a couple of songs, a couple of poems and maybe a few stories.
She’s after finding a load of tapes.
She’s going to be doing a duet with her brother.
He’s not here. She’s here. You’re here.
Thanks very much for being here.
If you’re concerned about anything that’s happening on the stage just remember to listen to the sound of her voice.
She’s doing a duet with her brother.
He’s not here.
He is dead.
Doireann Coady in her new show debuts as author as she sets off to stage an unstageable, impossible and beautiful act.

“taking conventional notions of theatre and its audience and shoving them back in our faces, with a few expletives thrown in.”
The Irish Independent

The show presents content that some viewers might find distressing, as well as loud sounds and strong light effects.
