You want to know how I came to live here?
Following its sell out premiere as part of the Drogheda Arts Festival in May of this year. Upstate Theatre Project revive Come Forward To Meet You for Heritage Week August 2011
COME FORWARD TO MEET YOU is an adrenaline fuelled encounter created on site at Oldbridge House. Based on the real life memoirs of local woman Angela Mitchell, who lived and worked here as a servant in the 1920’s, we invite the audience to surrender to their very own journey, cross paths with Angela and immerse themselves in an intimate and interactive experience in the original kitchens of the big house.
COME FORWARD TO MEET YOU is a unique collision of oral history and highly physical performance. Created by members of the community and directed by award winning director Louise Lowe.
‘It is a theatrical haunting.’
There is limited capacity for these performances and early booking is advisable

St. Brigid’s Drama Group presents
The Rhythm of Strife
What can happen in a town in a week? A migrant man becomes a local hero only to lose everything. A female Garda is plagued by a personal health secret. A priest is the subject of gossip. An unemployed musician gets lucky in love and comes to understand his mother’s grief. A young girl gets lucky in love with the unemployed musician while her feckless father is traumatised by a fire. A free-living hippy girl witnesses the fire and doesn’t care. A fallen aristocrat falls further only to rise again.
In November 2009, Upstate Theatre Project and St. Brigid’s Drama Group agreed to collaborate on a new ‘exploratory’ community drama programme. Out of this has come a new play for 20 performers, based on group improvisation and collective writing.
The play is set in 2010, in a large fictitious town in County Louth, Irelandwhich has a major regional hospital as well as the usual civic and private buildings and spaces common to all towns. It begins at the local Saturday market and follows the fortunes of seven diverse characters, their families and associates, across various locations, concluding seven days later at the same weekly market.
Hilarious and poignant, a fast-paced, 24/7, ‘slice-of-life’ comedy-drama that will entertain and engage Droghedaaudiences for 3 nights only. Book now!
