    Event Description

    The Nation will be preformed at 1pm in the Dramsoc theatre each day from the 6th-10th of February. "Fed up with the modern society Andersson decides to form her own nation in the middle of a forest in Northern Sweden. With the help of her loyal plant Ficus she is able to find a perfect spot for this glorious new country, only to be interrupted by a ghost from her past, a woman called Berg and an old huntsman who goes by the name Gustav. Alliances form and break in the midst of pine trees, the new country is divided, united, brought into a war and to peace. The nation is both a philosophical commentary on what it takes to form a nation but also a surreal comedy about countries, societies, friendships and ideologies" Cast: Andersson: Katelynn McGowan Berg: Anne-Marie Keogh Gustav: Aayan Atiq Senior: Laurence Childs Crew: Producer: Neele Heite-Meißner Director: Laura Tapio Assistant director: Saoirse Hanley Lighting/ sound designer: Leanne Bergin Set designer: Spring Mitchell Stage manager: Orla Mooney Protups: Melissa O'Driscoll and Mairead Burke
