Midsummer Night – Free Rehearsed Reading
It’s midsummer night this Thursday night and if you’re in Dublin, you can catch a free rehearsed reading of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Teacher’s Club on Parnell Square. The piece is presented by La Touche Players and is directed by Emily Maher. The curtain (metaphorically speaking) goes up at 8pm.
Follow the guys on Twitter via @LaTouchePlayers or check out the Facebook event listings for more info and directions.
Formerly known as the Bank of Ireland Drama Group, La Touche Players – renamed after the bank’s first governor – was founded in 1969. La Touche Players has mounted many successful productions through the years by writers as diverse as Frank McGuinness, Noel Coward, Anthony Minghella, Willie Russell, Brian Friel and Sebastian Barry. Over the years, La-Touche has participated in many of the drama festivals around the country, and has reached the All Ireland finals in the past.
Productions have also featured original pieces written by group members, including ‘The Paper Millionaires’ by Tadhg O’Suilleabháin, and ‘Sundays’ by Ray Murray, which won the best New Writer award in the Skerries One Act Drama Festival in 2007.
