The PERCOLATE Talks

This event has ended

Online, Wednesday 21st April - Thursday 22nd April

Two of Ireland’s most innovative, expert and powerful storytellers talking about their craft!

Bewley's Café Theatre, as part of its new writing venture PERCOLATE, are proud to present two Public Interviews with leading theatre artists about the creation of their work, their processes and experiences.

On April 21, Mark O'Halloran will be in conversation with Eugene O'Brien and on April 22, Louise Lowe will be in conversation with Veronica Coburn.

Both events start live at 7pm and are free to the public. Audiences will need to register to receive a link for each event.

In November 2020, Bewley’s Cafe Theatre put out an Open Call to Playwrights to take part in a New Writing Venture – PERCOLATE. At the start of 2021, we selected six playwrights to receive workshops, master-classes, continuing support and direct feedback on their plays. We assembled an Artistic Advisory Panel of independent theatre artists with a variety of experience and expertise, which includes Veronica Coburn and Eugene O'Brien among others. The idea of having a multiplicity of voices
advocating and interrogating the work is to raise the level of discussion around dramatic writing in Ireland.

These public interviews are a part of that process and are open to everyone.
