Side-Show Productions presents 'Dreams Of Love' at The Town Hall Theatre

Side-Show Productions


Dreams Of Love

February 24th-26th
Town Hall Studio
Tickets: €10/€8

It’s all been real.

Dreams of Love is an original show co-created by the company. Three actors; one girl and two guys, are locked in a revolving love triangle. The spectacle turns through various guises from Romeo and Juliet’s amateur dramatics through to a melodrama on Youtube and on to a scene where a King demands a sandwich. It will all happen once upon a night, for three nights in February at the Town Hall Studio Galway.

Devised and performed by Zita Monaghan, Richard Walsh and Martin Sharry. Sound design by Keith Grainger.

Side-Show Productions aims to stage spectacles that will engage and provoke an audience. Our process attends to the problem of narrative and the associated complications that affect agency. In the treatment of our subject we reflect the many modes of modern culture consumption. We’re open to hybridization and seek to collaborate with other artists working in different art forms. The company is delighted to be presenting their first show at the Town Hall Studio.

Martin Sharry is a graduate of the M.A. in Theatre and Drama Studies, NUIG (2008). He has been a member of the Galway based ensemble WATERDONKEY Theatre. The first Side-Show Production was an ambulatory performance during the Ennis Street Theatre Festival 2010. Martin offered free walking history tours mixing improvisation with neglected biographical fact.

Zita Monahan holds an MA in Drama and Theatre Studies from NUI Galway. She is also an ensemble member of Galway based companies Mephisto Theatre and WATERDONKEY Theatre and recently performed in The Theatre Machine TurnsYou On in the Project Arts Centre Dublin The Very Best of John Lennon.
