The fast paced social commentary on the ‘social welfare culture’ that has been created in Ireland over the past 25 years won ‘The Cutting Edge Fringe Award’ at the Toronto Fringe Festival 2015. Set designer, Mario Beck, was nominated for Best Set Design at The Irish Times Theatre Awards.
Honest Arts “combines Artistry and the latest in 3D mapping technology in this fast paced, thought provoking, physical theatre piece”. Directed by Tara Doolan, it will be performed by Pius McGrath, Eva O’Connor and Johanna O’Brien.
Reviews have been positive too with My Entertainment Review giving it a B+/four stars saying that “this company knows how to find counterpoint and comedic relief, particularly McGrath, who is just phenomenal at creating beautifully nuanced and distinct characters”.
Please note: This show is suitable for audiences over 15 yrs.
Honest Arts toured to EdFringe in 2013 with The Mid-Knight Cowboy which received rave reviews and was also performed on Broadway in New York. The Scotsman said: “…..McGrath is a talented performer, shifting through the generations with little more than subtle adjustments of speech and body language”.
