100 Minutes 2008 – Ten New Plays About Now

Painted Filly Theatre are delighted to announce that 100 Minutes 2008 will be staged in Project Arts Centre from 5th-15th March. 100 Minutes 2008 brings together some of the freshest acting and directing talent in Ireland today to work with emerging playwrights from around the globe to create ‘ten new plays about now’.

From child prodigies to the trials of being a carer, taxis to taxes, extreme reality television to proposals at gunpoint, this ensemble production will explore modern life from ten widely variant angles. 100 Minutes 2008 gives you ten stories told by ten performers; ten moments plucked from twenty-first century Ireland; ten glimpses of the here and now.
Painted Filly Theatre aims to provide a professional platform for emerging performers, writers and theatre practitioners to showcase their talent in the developing stages of their careers. Read about recent productions and reviews at www.paintedfilly.wordpress.com
