Droichead Arts Centre are delighted to announce the first event of In your own time, a programme of monthly filmed theatre performances from some of Ireland's leading theatre companies, presented by our associate artists Red Bear Productions. 

MONEY:

Written & Performed by Peter Daly
Directed by Phillip McMahon
"Money is the root of all evil" - The Bible
"Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems" - The Notorious B.I.G.

On the fourteen year anniversary of the ‘cheapest bailout in the world’ acclaimed performer (and Chartered Accountant!) Peter Daly gets to grips with the changing concept of cash, his own miscalculations during the Celtic Tiger, and what actually happened on the path to, and beyond, that fateful day in 2008, in this one-man breakneck performance lecture. Jaw-dropping in it's discoveries, hilarious in its presentation and nail-bitingly infuriating in it's facts – Money unearths the gobsmacking truths about the flow of cash throughout the history of our state. It's the economy, stupid!

THISISPOPBABY is a theatre production company that rips up the space between popular culture, counter culture and high art. They create new contexts for theatre, bringing significant and diverse audiences to the arts as we support exceptional artists to make their best work. They are passionate about fostering community, inclusion and equality, values that can most notably be seen in their Where We Live Programmes - their incendiary response to how it feels to live in Dublin and Ireland today, as part of St Patrick's Festival 2018 and 2020. Not A Funny Word, by Tara Flynn and Money, by Peter Daly were two highlights of Where We Live 2018.

Sometimes getting to the theatre for an 8pm show can seem like an impossibility. Child care needs, caring for a relative, shift work or even financial worries are just some of the things that can stop us enjoying live theatre. Over the past few years theatre companies around the world have begun filming their shows to a magnificently high standard, bringing dynamic live theatre to our screens at home.

Theatre is for everyone so please join us in your own time.

In your own time is an initiative of Red Bear Productions in association with Droichead Arts Centre. Red Bear Productions are writer/director Tracy Martin and actor Aoibhéann McCann. They present dynamic theatre & film, telling unique stories of the human experience. Supported by The Arts Council.
