ECC: The Father (23-27 October 2018)

ECC is proud to present The Father, written by Florian Zeller, translated by Christopher Hampton, and directed by Heli Pärna, at the Warehouse Studio Theatre from October 23-27, 2018.

What is actually going on in this flat? And who are these people coming in and out of it? And is it even his flat or is he in someone else’s home? And if so, how did he get here?

According to the author, Florian Zeller, The Father is a puzzle with a missing piece and no one ever knows which piece it is”. The protagonist, André who is living with his adult daughter Anne, is looking for people to tell him the truth in an ever changing world while trying to make sense of his environment despite the reigning chaos around him. This play is a glimpse into the world of someone with dementia – an illness that leads quite a silent existence, perhaps because many people think, and even more so, hope, that it will never affect them.

A €2 donation will be made to Alzheimer Europe Foundation from each ticket sold. You can visit their website to learn more about the work and research that they do www.alzheimer-europe.org

Tickets are €15 and are available from www.thelittleboxoffice.com/ecc

ECC Youth Theatre Summer School

The ECC is offering a theatre summer school from 9th – 13th July for children aged between 6 and 16 years old. The week’s activities will be based around the stories of Robin Hood and will include acting, singing and dancing rehearsals. Additionally, there will be a series of workshops on some of the back-stage aspects of theatre, such as hair & make-up, sets, props, sound, and lighting. The aim is to give a short performance for parents on the Friday afternoon, with the possibility for some children to be involved back-stage, if they wish to do so!
