A play reading in Blanchardstown Library on Friday 24 October 10.30am. Rose reading the part of Bernarda.
Director Dylan Tighe is conducting a development project to work on a new version of The House of Bernarda Alba with traveller women in Blanchardstown. The play will be updated to a present day halting site, transposing the idiom to that of present day travellers, and eventually Dylan plans to direct a production with travellers as performers.
As part of the project, a reading of the original play will be presented to the Blanchardstown Traveller Development Project so that the women will get a sense of the original play before making it their own.
