No Drama Theatre presents a Capitol Theatre Company production
A play about a man trying to write a play
Capitol Theatre Company is back with the extended version of ‘Work in Progress’, adding a second act to the 20 minute one-act-play performed at Scene and Heard 2023.
With an imminent deadline fast-approaching, Wilson Reynolds is unable to complete his project for his theatre company, no matter how hard, or how long, he tries. Although his trusted, but somewhat peculiar, friend is sat by his side, the muses just won’t budge and Wilson feels like he’s staring at a blank page. What exactly is it that’s preventing him from completing this work in his small, strange apartment?
‘Work in Progress’ is a two-act-play that explores the subjective experience and the illusion of choice while examining the nature of theatre and raising questions about what it really means to be free.
Running Time: 85 mins incl an interval
Tickets €15 | €10 matinee
WRITTEN BY Alejandro Niklison
DIRECTED BY Bernadette McDermott
PRODUCER + ASSISTANT DIRECTOR Cormac Fitzpatrick
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER Andrei Callanan
CAST: Alejandro Niklison, Jane Tuohy, Terry Kenny
