At The Comedy Scoop we like anything that makes us laugh so we thought we would share with you some theatre suggestions we have found in the 10 days in Dublin brochure which are sure to make you giggle along to them.
First up is Sluts. According to the 10 days in Dublin site, “four girls in an unspecified area of Dublin are getting ready to go to a nightclub. What happens? Who knows? But they’re all a load of sluts”…sounds delightful doesn’t it? “Sluts plays on the stereotyped view of girl’s friendships and explores the struggles they experience individually through the dynamic of their friendships. With its sharp, witty dialogue, cutting and aggressive put downs, and heart wrenching moments Sluts captures the frailty and, at times superficiality, of love and loss”. Sluts is on from July 8th – 11th in the New Theatre at 6pm. Tickets are €10/€7
Next Up is Cosas. As you can see from the picture, yes she is a clown. Clowns are funny right? According to the 10 days site “A Clown Lives in a rudimentary and timeless place, one flooded with familiar apparatus, taken out of its context. Things has been distorted to the extreme, for the better or worse. Cosas is an inventor and a user, both satisfied and frustrated, out of necessity or just for fun, technology has become everything for her.” Intriguing…. Cosas is on in the New Theatre from July 12th- 14th at 6pm (with a 1pm matinee on the 14th). Tickets are €10/€8
Third on our list is Heroine for Breakfast. With a name like why wouldn’t you go and see it eh? The 10 days in Dublin website gives us a reason to be cheerful: “2009: Credit Crunch… Global Warming… Coldplay… Reasons to be Cheerful?… 1. Heroin.” Expect some dark humour from this play as flatmates battle to save their country from mediocrity. Heroine for Breakfast can be seen at Smock Alley Theatre from July 5th – July 12th at 8pm. Tickets are €12/€10
Last but not least on our list is Spurt. Though not looking like your typical comedic piece of drama, it looks like there may be some dark comedy among the talk of death and mortality…. “Finn’s dad has just died. But so has his fish. And he fucking loved that fish.” This play will have you thinking about your life…. You can catch Spurt at The New Theatre from July 12th – July 14th at 8pm. Tickets are €10
So there you go some theatre suggestions for you too. Why not pop on over to the 10 days in Dublin Website and take a look around and book your tickets today! Ye never know we might just see you around during the festival….
