UCC students go back to their roots

Wednesday, 6th March, 2019 4:32pm

Aspiring young theatre makers in UCC are set to showcase stories by some of the world’s most famous writers tonight.

Final year students from the college’s Department of Theatre have adapted stories by the likes of Edgar Allan Poe and the Brothers Grimm for their showcase, which opens at the Firkin Crane tonight and runs until Saturday 9 March.

The self-led adaptations, titled ‘Roots/Routes’ are based on ‘The Masque of The Red Death’ by Edgar Allen Poe, ‘The Golden Bird’ by the Brothers Grimm, ‘The Outsider’ by HP Lovecraft and ‘Goblin Market’ by Christina Rosetti. As part of the BA degree, students must form self-selected companies, choose a short prose text from the literary canon and adapt it to create a new piece of theatre.

The title ‘Roots/Routes’ is because each of the pieces are rooted in their original texts but have been adapted to create four new pieces of devised theatre. ‘Roots/Routes’ shows in the Firkin Crane from 7-9 March at 7.30pm.

For more information follow the UCC Department of Theatre’s Student Insights series, where final year project students talk about their work, at ucc.ie/en/music-theatre/drama/currentstudents/student-insights.
