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!

What’s all the drama about?
Come see by joining Droichead Youth Theatre!!
Following on from the success of their production MOCK during Drogheda Arts Festival this year, Droichead Youth Theatre is recruiting new members for its summer introductory programme. This workshop programme will give you a chance to see if the youth theatre is really for you!
Drama workshops will be held every Saturday beginning on the 26th June for a 10 week period. The emphasis is on having fun, exploring creativity and learning about drama in a safe and supportive environment. No previous experience is necessary.

The summer workshops will be led by guest facilitator Gavin Logue. If you are between the ages of 14 and 18 and interesting in joining, we would love to hear from you!
