The London Vertigo is a hilarious period comedy based on the play The true born Irishman, or, The Irish fine lady by Charles Macklin. We are looking for 2 women (20s-50s) and 3 men (20s-60s) – for more info or any questions send us an email: itg.asbl@gmail.com (synopsis and more details here)

ITG: Play reading – The Cripple of Inishmaan (15 Mar 2016)

The ITG will host a play reading of Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan on Tuesday 15th March at 20:00 (doors open from 19:30) at The Warehouse (73 rue de Waelhem, Schaerbeek)

Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934 this strange and comic tale coincides with the arrival of Hollywood director Robert O’Flaherty is on the neighbouring island of Inishmore to film Man of Aran.

You will be familiar with McDonagh’s work…we have previously produced The Beauty Queen of Lenane which is also from his pen.

You are welcome to come along whether you want to read a part yourself or just listen.

The ITG is bringing you two of Brian Friel’s one-act plays; very different in their content, style and approach but clearly from the pen of the same writer. Demonstrating Friel’s recurring interest in how we try to reinvent ourselves and the convenient lies we tell to the world around us.
One ‘after Chekhov’, the other ‘after Macklin’ and now sadly, one year on from his death, ‘After Friel’.

The London Vertigo, an 18th century farce by Charles Macklin, but now stripped down to its hilarious essentials, and ‘Afterplay’, an extension to the lives of two characters from two different Chekhov plays who meet 20 years after their dramatic embodiments left the stage.

The London Vertigo was our entry to FEATS 2016 where it picked up three awards: Best Production, Best Stage Presentation, and Best Actor

ITG: The Cripple of Inishmaan (7-11 & 16-17 Feb 2017)

The Cripple of Inishmaan will be directed by Noreen Doyle, and performed in the Warehouse Studio Theatre from Tue 7 –  Sat 11 and Thur 16-Fri 17 February [Sold Out]

The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh, set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, is a dark comedy. Inspired by a real event – the filming of The Man of Aran on Inishmore in 1934 – the story follows the impact of the news of the filming on young Cripple Billy and the other inhabitants of Inishmaan. Could this be their escape from life on Inishmaan where the tedium is broken only by the gossip and stories put about by Johnnypateenmike?

Cruel, sad, sometimes violent, yet achingly funny, the story reveals the characters in a way that makes you realise that people are not always as they seem.

For Tickets (€15) Put your name on the waiting list. Send email to itg.asbl@gmail.com indicating:

  1. which performances you are available to attend,
  2. how many tickets you would like,
  3. a contact phone number.
