Draíocht were delighted to provide free rehearsal space for Gavin Kostick, Aonghus Óg MacAnally, and crew to develop work on a new script for the week of April 25th.
Here's what Gavin had to say about his experience.
"Myself, Gavin Kostick, working with RISE Productions and supported by the Arts Council spent a very happy and productive few working days in the welcoming home of Draíocht.
We were working on a new play based on the The Lower Depth by Gorky - it was full-on Russian gloom, ameliorated by Hob Nobs and the odd Krispy Kreme.
The opportunity provided by Draíocht gave us an invaluable space in which to work, and an increased confidence in ourselves in having such a valued arts space behind us (metaphorically) and around us (literally). Much appreciated."
