Dislocated: A Series of Readings

Dislocated: A Series of ReadingsDislocated: A Series of Readings

Fishamble produced a season of three rehearsed readings of contemporary plays from Germany, Ireland and Britain. The plays deal with young lives turned inside-out by dislocation and alienation: in similar territory, but with strikingly different artistic vision to Tadhg Stray Wandered In.

Each reading took place at 3 pm in Project, Cube on the three Saturdays of the production.
