Soldier, Smoker, Lipstick, Joker - play set in a in wartime bunker
Teenage playwright Caoimhe Flynn from Kilmacanogue brought her work to life at Whale Theatre last week, along with Kilmac Youth Drama Group.
The character driven World War Two drama 'Soldier, Smoker, Lipstick, Joker' is set entirely inside a bunker.
Caoimhe has been a member of the drama group since the age of six. As well as writing, she directed the play which was presented on-stage last Thursday night. The play takes a fresh look at life during 1940s wartime London.
Six characters at odds with one another find themselves caught in the blitz, forced to spend the night in a bomb shelter waiting out the blasts. As the night unfolds, walls crumble, both inside and out.
Soldier was played by Harvey Brezina Conniffe, smoker by Jasper Brezina Conniffe, Lipstick by Eleanor Stephens, and Joker by PJ Lawlor. The evening also included a selection of musical acts performed by a number of talented youths from Kilmacanogue.
It has been a momentous week for Kilmac Drama, as their short film written and directed by Harvey Brezina Conniffe has been short-lived by the Fresh Film Festival. The piece will screened in the Odeon in the Point Village today (Wednesday).
