I have been working in the North and Republic of Ireland for over twenty years and I love the place. This last month I’ve read on stages in Listowell, Dublin and Borris. At the relatively new Borris House Festival of Writing and ideas I gave a dramatic reading of my own man show ‘Something Dark’ and a light sparked in me so I sent out a message.
Tom Morris director of War Horse responded.
Orla Guerin kindly responded. .
Ennis Festival and Listowell responded. I’ve performed Something Dark all over the world yet only twice in Ireland where it resonates stronger than anywhere. Something dark is one man, one script and one Stage. Simple.
To prove how the dramatic reading is received a few nights ago I read Something Dark at The Metronome in Nottingham and here are a small selection of unsolicited comments.
So I want to tour Something Dark in Ireland. Although it is a story about me it relates to what is happening in ireland. Take a look at the story of Majella Moynihan. It relates to her story and the story of the care system. It’s funny too.
It’s not usual to send out a request such as this but I am doing it anyway: If anyone in Ireland is interested in booking Something Dark then please write Sarah Power.
This dramatic reading of Something Dark is followed by a Q and A. Running time 90 minutes. Come on Ireland.
