    Event Description

    Directing Is All About Collaboration - a workshop in directing with Deirdre Molloy. Tuesday 28th 11:00-12:30 Deirdre Molloy's 90 minute workshop will be completely practical with a Q&A opportunity at the end. We will work on scenes and monologues from three modern texts: Sucking Dublin by Enda Walsh, Danny and Chantelle (still Here) by Phillip McMahon and Show Me Love by Colin Thornton. Participants will perform segments from these shows and be directed by other participants with guidance and input from Deirdre.
