The Moat Club presents Four 4 Four

Four nights, four short comedies, four
emerging directors

Four aspiring directors from the ranks of
the Moat Club membership have been participating in a mentoring programme
delivered by Lianne O’Shea and supported by Kildare Arts Service. The
culmination of the nine-month Directors Mentoring Programme will be the staging
of a short play by each participant. These four plays will be spread across four
nights. Think of it as a one-act drama festival without the adjudicator!

A feast of comedy is guaranteed. The plays

Before a Fall
 by Robert Scott

Little Grimley Presents
Strictly Sex Factor On Ice
 by David Tristram

‘Last Tango in Little
Grimley’ by David Tristram

Directed by Clodagh Cummins

The Last Tango in Little Grimley'
follows the antics of the Little Grimley Amateur Society. Membership
has rapidly declined, and in a last-ditch attempt to save the society, and
make the rent, drastic measures are taken with hilarious consequences. 

‘The Star Trap’ by Michael James
Ford adapted from the original Bram Stoker story

Directed by Pete Kavanagh

A tale of love, jealousy and violent death,
set in the colourful backstage world of the Victorian theatre, The Star Trap
tells the story of the affair between married showgirl, Loo Halliday, and her
lover, a flamboyant Harlequin. When her lover is killed in horrific
circumstances in full view of a packed Saturday night house, Loo suspects
something more than a tragic accident and will go to any lengths to discover
the truth.

‘Bride Before a Fall’ by
Robert Scott

Directed by
Patricia Voon

The fast-paced, darkly comic
story of a doomed trio. Victor and his cunning mistress Madelyn decide to kill
Victor’s annoying and dim-witted but VERY RICH wife (Lottie). They scheme
42 different scenarios but things just keep going wrong. The final result will
have unexpected consequences for all three of them.

‘Little Grimley
Presents Strictly Sex Factor On Ice’ by David Tristram. 

Directed by Sarah

The Little Grimley Amateur Society is
faced with yet another threat to its very existence. Reality TV shows have
ravaged their Saturday night audiences, which, in their hey-day, used to
occasionally reach double figures. Never one to take these things lying down,
Chairman Gordon has devised a cunning plan to compete head-on – their very own
live Saturday night blockbuster, combining the best of all the other formats.
All they need now is an audience, some contestants, four judges, a mirror
ball… oh, yes, and some ice.

Director’s Mentoring Programme was made possible by the kind support of Kildare
Arts Service.
