THEATRE | The Raparees

FRINGE 2017 | Nine

Presented by Hilary Woods. “An uncompromising and singular songwriter.” - The Last Mixed Tape. Planet Nine looks like a volcanic crater of thickened fog and frenzied awakenings. A demystifying trip of intrigue at the edge of the cosmos, a powerful piece of theatre fusing sound, dance, film, romance, and a hapless hero called King.


DTF 2017 | Melt

Its setting is the Antarctic – the last great wilderness, the edge of the known world, the one relatively uncontaminated territory. Into this idyllic landscape is catapulted the gloriously anarchic Boylan, a pioneering Irish ecologist gone rogue. As the play opens, he is joined by Cook, a young scientist who is strung between his professional ambitions and his romantic longing for the mysterious Dr Hansen – Boylan’s ex-wife.
