In March 2012, Fishamble’s Tiny Plays for Ireland 1 sold out Project Arts Centre’s Space Upstairs with the first 25 of 50 plays selected from over 1,700 submitted to Fishamble. In 2013 Fishamble returns with the culminating 25 plays. Playwrights include Maeve Binchy, Colum McCann, Pauline McLynn, Tom Swift, and members of the public chosen from over 1,700 submissions.
This highly theatrical production, staged in-the-round, offers vivid glimpses of contemporary Ireland as seen through a range of perspectives. A cast of five actors play over 50 roles in this production which is accompanied by a programme of debates and discussions, based on the themes and issues explored.
