Dolphin Theatre is very excited to announce the line-up for our

2021 One Act Play Season!

After the success of our One Act Festival in 2018 we’ve decided to go BIG!!.....

This year we have 6 exciting plays being presented by 6 new directors* over 2 nights alternating across 2 weeks.

Auditions will be on Saturday January 23rd.

1. THE IRISH MURDERER by Tom G. Robertson
Directed by Simon Foley

It was a dreadful rainy night when Paddy Noonan knocked on the door at Michael O'Hanlon's cottage in the Northern Irish countryside outside of Ulster. Paddy drew a pistol from his coat and announced, with a bit of a grim smile, that he'd come "to kill ya". Noonan had set out on this fearsome Irish night to avenge the death of his brother, killed in a pub bombing by O'Hanlon and the IRA. The two-man play that ensues is filled with a comic irony and the tragic absurdity of the bitter cycle of violence between Protestant and Catholic in Northern Ireland.

Note: Both roles have stage fighting and falls to the ground. We will be having professionals help with
this.
