Word Made Flesh
Every day they talk to us on trains, buses, in supermarkets, on our mobiles - but who are these people? What do they look like?  What are their hopes, dreams and aspirations –did they always want this job?  Don’t  they get bored saying ‘your cash is dispensed under the scanner’ or ‘next stop Museum’ or ‘you have three new messages’ a hundred times a day.
Word Made Flesh brings you into Ireland’s most secret location –The  Speaksphere – where you can see not only the faces behind the voices –but hear what they can’t  ever say (or sing) when the mikes are live… and inevitably,  what happens when things get out of hand…
 
98 Kavanagh 
This play features a group of young people, all born at a point in time less than twenty years ago, around the turn of the century.
It is about a group of young people one hundred years ago, during the First World War, also born around the turn of the century.
It's about that world then, and how different it was. 
Being young meant something different, and being a man or woman meant something different, and being a good man or good woman was something different again.
If killing and being killed is good, then what can bad mean?
What can obscene mean when the Somme is normal?  

The Honeys
A group of grannies re-unite after many years apart. They reminisce over days gone by; when Drogheda was the Las Vegas of Ireland, Pauline's nick name was 'No Pants' and feminism was a dirty word. How much has changed from when they were young? Take a trip back in time with 'The Honeys', to when they swore they'd be friends forever.
