Description

Purgatory; Archaic : Waterford edition

For the first time ever "Purgatory; archaic" steps outside their residency of the International bar in Dublin to bring their sold out and successful plays to a wider audience.

Our first stop on our tour is writer/director Luke Corcoran's hometown of Waterford city. These plays are written, designed and performed for people who don't go to theatre.

We have selected three of the best of our ten play repertoire to make sure the Waterford Audience gets the best of what we have to offer.

Over 90 minutes you'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll be carried away as far as your imagination can take you... But most importantly, like all our previous audiences, you'll be thoroughly entertained.

The first in our trio of plays

FLIPS

Written & directed by Luke Corcoran

Starring Luke Collins as Aaron and Jason Deeney as Danny.

Upstairs in a pub at the wake of his late wife, Danny wants to have a word with someone... The man upstairs to be exact.

Rudely interrupted by his adopted brother Aaron what follows is a childhood game of flipping beer mats that has serious consequences for their adult lives.


The second play

JOBBER

Written & directed by Luke Corcoran

Starring

Jason Deeney as Dar
Padraic Mc Ginley as Finbarr

It's the year 2028. Due to the exponential increase in social media and lack of face to face interactions among it's citizens the rate of depression has begun to affect the Irish government's profitability. In order to promote citizen satisfaction the government has legalised certain aspects of the sex trade on a trial basis. Oh... and they also threw in cannabis.

Our final play of the afternoon promises to leave our Audience on a high.

D,D&D

Written & directed by Luke Corcoran

Starring Cherley Kane as Deirdre, Manuel Pombo as Daniel and Luke Collins as D

"...A twenty sided dice, a big bottle of potcheen, a very special bong and a... generous bag of cocaine. Your pre-marriage counselling fantasy adventure game is now ready to play".

Daniel is a big fan of fantasy adventure and he wants to propose to his girlfriend Deirdre, a high flying business executive, but she doesn't believe in marriage. To help him out Daniel receives a gift from Karl the Druid outside the supermarket one day. A board game that doubles as a pre-marriage counselling course... With a twist and a certain set of rules. They play the game under the influence of narcotics and alcohol and conjure up much, much more than they bargained for.
