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 are:

* Last Tango in Little Grimley by David Tristram

The Star Trap by Michael James Ford

Bride 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 Phipps

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.

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