Letters to Lucia

written by Richard Rose and James Vollmar and perfomed by Triskellion Irish Theatre Company. 

 

LETTERS TO LUCIA FINAL COPY

Centered on the life of the daughter of James Joyce and Nora Barnacle.

Letters to Lucia is an original drama featuring letters as they might have been written to James Joyce’s daughter Lucia by those who knew her well. These correspondents include her parents and the writer Samuel Beckett who visited her at St Andrews, the Northampton hospital where she ended her days.

In the unique setting of the cemetery where Lucia is buried, her friends and family express thoughts and feelings they perhaps wished they could have articulated during Lucia’s lifetime, but for various reasons did not.

From an original idea by Richard Rose, the drama was developed in collaboration with playwright James Vollmar and the Triskellion  Irish Theatre Company. Cast of James Joyce, Nora Barnacle, Samuel Beckett, Frank Budgen, and Kathleen Neel.

This  new play will be  performed for the first time  on Bloomsday (June 16th 2018 @ 2.30pm) at her graveside, Kingsthorpe, Northampton.  Our 14th year !. Bring a chair and light picnic !.Also buried here are Donall Mac Amhlaigh (Irish in Britain Writer) and Violet Gibson (The Irishwoman Who Shot Mussolini)

Crawley Fleadh Night

 

The  highlight of the Celtic and Irish Cultural Society’s year is their  Crawley Irish Festival held on the Sunday of the August Bank Holiday.  Here John and Noreen Nolan and committee  attracted  over 6,000 people featuring a number of Irish arts workshops, Irish dancing demonstrations, three music stages featuring traditional and modern Irish music, All Ireland Gaelic Football Semi- Final ‘beamed’ from Croke Park, children’s entertainment and storytelling, craft stalls and shops selling traditional Irish produce etc.  This year’s festival proved a great success with a Sky TV crew down to record the happenings for the ‘Irish in the UK’ Tv show.  The programme can be viewed on youtube at

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giQYDPGbQ2Y&feature=player_embedded&app=desktop

Throughout the year as part of Crawley Fleadh with support from Crawley Council  and the Hawth Theatre they endeavour to host other activities such as educational and performance events to showcase further our rich and varied Culture.  Following on from our very successful and well received ‘One Easter Morn’ (2016 Commemoration ) held last year we are hosting a night of Irish Drama, Music, Story and Song on Friday 3rd November at 7. 45 at the Hawth Theatre.

They  are especially pleased to be bringing over from Co. Kildare, The Hy- Breasal Theatre Company as the highlight of the night as they present  ‘Backwater’, Classic Irish Drama by John B Keane . ‘Backwater’ is a rarely seen John B. Keane one-act play which was first performed in 1973. It tells the story of Jimmy Swan, an only son who arrives home to Ireland from London to visit his mother after a nine year absence.  His visit coincides with the annual carnival in the village and he brings his two friends, Sammy and Eddie to stay for the ten days of the carnival.  Jimmy’s arrival triggers a series of events that neither he nor his mother could have foreseen.

The rest of the evening will be a showcase of Irish Dancing from the Ace Academy and traditional music from the local band Strawdogs. This is being  produced in collaboration with Gerry Molumby from Triskellion Theatre who will also perform part of his one man show ‘Tar Isteach’.

When I founded Triskellion Irish Theatre and Concert Productions in 1994 I used the mission statement of ‘Ireland and its diaspora’, it was incorporated into our logo with the harp of Ireland being pages of a script and the TTC (Triskellion Theatre Company ) forming the strings in the Brian Boru harp.
