FundIt for Salt and 30 others...

The Collaborations 13 festival's Fundit Account has just gone LIVE! http://www.fundit.ie/project/jb-collaborations-2013.

The festival will run from Feb 22nd - March 9th next year (hence the '13' in the title!) and will feature one of my own plays, SALT ON OUR SKIN, my first staged production since the Focus (Trade Me A Dream) in 1997, so it's really exciting.

The target overall is €6000 in six weeks but with the number of people involved and if each of us has a few (maybe 10?) friends - yeah, it can be doubtful! - who donate a fiver, then apparently we will make it.

The festival, which is organised by the Jack Burdell Experience theatre company, will feature 31 shows of all sorts, shapes, sizes and moods... There are full length plays but also recurring one hour shows featuring three short plays, one of which will include my own, directed by Antoinette Duffy.

I really REALLY hope you can make it along!

You can read more about the details of the festival on the FundIt site. (http://www.fundit.ie/project/jb-collaborations-2013)

SALT ON OUR SKIN... What it's about...


Eve needs to tell her lover something he really doesn’t want to hear. But how do you make someone understand what it means to be losing your eyesight gradually? To know that soon, even if she still dreams in colour, she will wake up to a black and white world? She decides to take him behind her eyes so that he will understand how it feels and she does this with a lyrical epiphany of a letter – to her lover, to life and to colour. The play was written for, inspired by and is dedicated to a friend, Tanvir Bushe.
