The Shed at National Theatre - March & April 2014
The Shed at the National Theatre has announced three productions for March & April 2014.
riverrun, an adaptation by Olwen Fouere of the voice of the river in James Joyce's Finnegans Wake, from 11 to 22 March 2014. Produced by TheEmergencyRoom and Galway Arts Festival, it is adapted, directed and performed by Olwen Fouéré and co-directed by Kellie Hughes; music and sound by Alma Kelliher, lighting by Stephen Dodd and costumes by Monica Frawley. 'Fouere’s unique approach to Joyce’s extraordinary ‘sound-dance’ becomes a universal call to wake up, surrender the past and confront the betrayals that might lie at the heart of our histories.'
Chewing Gum Dreams, written and performed by Michaela Coel, 17 to 22 Mar and 4 & 5 April 2014. Directed by Nadia Fall, this one-woman play recalls those last days of innocence before adulthood.
Following run at The Shed in Aug/Sep 2013, Home, returns 26 Mar to 30 April 2014. Created and directed by Nadia Fall, the cast of actors and musicians includes Michaela Coel, Jonathan Coote, Kadiff Kirwan, Ashley McGuire, Grace Savage, Toby Wharton. It is designed by Ruth Sutcliffe, choreography by Jack Murphy, music by Tom Green and Shakka Philip, musical direction by Gareth Valentine, sound by Mike Walker and lighting by Ciaran Bagnall. Homelessness amongst young people in the UK is at a record high, so when the big society doesn't work ― where do you go? An inner city high rise hostel, Target East, offers a roof. HOME brings to life the unheard voices of the young residents and staff who live and work behind the anonymous concrete walls. Using real testimonials alongside existing and original music, Nadia Fall’s play asks what it really means to call somewhere home.
Public Booking opens 10 Jan 2014 for all shows.
