Set in the dystopian landscape of an institution for spiritual healing, we ltake a closer look at two in-patients who are considered so incurable that they are referred to as 'half-out patients' by Doctor Evan Graft, the intensely unlikeable founder of the institution. A tragicomedy in two acts, this play is a combination of high octane commediae dell'arte and raw tragedy.
Bio / Needs
This has been produced Off-Broadwya in the Venus Adonis Festival and achieved a 4.0 grade in Final Year 'Advanced Writing' in Trinity College, Dublin. I would like to explore the commedia dell'arte (high physicality and lazzi) within the piece. Two of the core actors, Doctor Graft and his sidekick, Nurse Joy Hogan need to be very physical performers. The cast consists of 3 male and 3 female actors, with doubling specific scenes. There is an original score that accompanies the piece that plays before, during and after the piece.
