An exciting new Irish production brings classic film and dark humour to the stage. Fishamble's Silent is returning from its tour of America to Axis Ballymun and I'm pleased to have a pair of tickets to give away to one of ye for the opening night on Wednesday October 10th, courtesy of Axis. It has a limited run from October 10th - 13th.
Homeless McGoldrig once had splendid things. But he has lost it all - including his mind. He now dives into the wonderful wounds of his past through the romantic world of Rudolph Valentino, in this brave, bold, beautiful production.
Winner of the Fringe First and Herald Angel Awards at Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2011 and Argus Angel at Brighton Festival in 2012, it deals sincerely and humourously with the dark theme of depression.
Located at the heart of Ballymun, axis is an arts venue, a production company, an arts development organisation, a community resource centre, and is home to a number of community development organisations.
Axis' Autumn/Winter event guide can be downloaded here, they've got some great events lined up including a screening of one of Gable & Colbert's It Happened One Night as well as a Halloween 'Otherworld' festival, this year taking its inspiration from Bram Stoker's Dracula character.
In order for this giveaway to reach a larger potential audience than my readership, I'm going to take this to twitter, so simply tweet at me: "See 'Silent' @axisBallymun via @acertainsmile http://tinyurl.com/8ujf6nw #events #Dublin". Or if you don't have twitter, comment here with your name and email.
I will select a winner at random on Saturday, October 6th. Good luck!
