JOLT Panel Discussion in Galway next Monday

The wonderful Roisin Stack is part of the JOLT team organising an exciting event in Galway next week for all lovers of the arts. Here’s what they had to say about it or visit the event page on facebook

We are delighted and excited to announce that on Monday 10th December a panel discussion on the subject of Adaptation for the Stage will be presented on the main stage of Galway’s Town Hall Theatre.

Chaired by Patrick Lonergan (NUI Galway), the panel will consist of Máiréad Ní Chroinín (Moonfish Theatre), Niall Henry (Blue Raincoat Theatre), Simon Doyle (Pan Pan Theatre) and Michael West (The Corn Exchange Theatre Company).

The panel will discuss adaptation in its broadest sense – ideologies and methods, successes and failures – as well as their own experiences with this approach. We will also open the floor to questions if time permits.

With recent stagings of The Picture of Dorian Grey at The Abbey, Moonfish’s successful run of Pinocchio . . . , Darwin: A Life in Poems adapted by Mephisto for this year’s Cúirt Festival, Dubliners by Corn Exchange and an upcoming production of The Dead at The Abbey, adaptation is clearly as relevant to theatre now as ever. JOLT would like the public to come and share their thoughts on adaptation as a form of theatre at the panel discussion and everyone is welcome!

We encourage anyone to come along, whether interested in adaptation, writing, theatre, or maybe just curious about the event itself.

The discussion is free of charge and presented by JOLT in association with NUI Galway, Town Hall Theatre, Galway and Acadamh (OÉ Gaillimh).

Doors are at 7:30pm sharp and running time is approximately 90 minutes.

We look forward to seeing you all for a lively discussion! Spread the good word.
