The Gaiety School of Acting - Class of 2014 Presents: 'Dirty Laundry' Written & Directed by Chris Edmund
DIRTY LAUNDRY is a theatre piece written for 19 actors and attempts to engage with the ideas of home in a very broad way embracing the journey of characters from the ghost of the painter Francis Bacon to people on the very outer of society struggling to find a place for themselves in a fractured world.
Art is also central to the piece. Can it heal? Can it teach us how to live or even love? Can it in a real way be a home for people?
Writer + Director Chris Edmund is the former acting head of West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) where some of his students included Hugh Jackman, Frances O’Connor and Jai Courtney. His previous plays The Devil’s Tunic and The Butcher’s Dance have received rave reviews across Australia.
'Dirty Laundry' is on in the Main Space at Smock Alley Theatre from the 23rd to 28th June.
Tickets are €15, with €10 concession tickets also available.
