“What the fuck do we do now?”
Kate’s attempts to confront her husband’s ‘problem’ go hilariously wrong. But the others in her all-night café have darker secrets, bigger problems. A daughter on the run. A brother and sister in search of escape. Their personal dramas are about to boil over…
Night Shift is a comedy (black, 2 sugars) that asks: how well do we really know those we know best?
Written by: Naomi Elster
Directed by: Emily Foran

Frontliner Stephen Tadgh on set yesterday shooting a screen adaptation of Sarah Binchy’s ‘Thorny Island’.
Directed by fellow Frontliner Geraldine Mc Alinden, Thorny Island sees a young pair having to travel to the UK while trying to untangle one of the biggest decisions of their lives.
The hidden memoir of an elderly woman confined to a mental hospital reveals the history of her passionate yet tortured life, and of the religious and political upheavals in Ireland during the 1920s and ’30s.
The Secret Scripture will be screening at the Toronto Film Festival 2016

Food of Love by Lorna Kelly Dalton
A young man struggles to find his way through the hectic maze of young adulthood when a serious accident becomes the catalyst of a turbulent year falling in, and out of, love with The Belly Button Girl.
Along the way we meet ‘Samuca Lady’, ‘Miguel from Longford’, ‘Cousin Sharon’, ‘Lazy-Eyed Niamh’ and ‘The Massive Lad’. One year on we reflect on whether one can maintain the fulfilment they found in someone else, but do so, by themselves.
“And I wondered what it would be like if we bought a house together? And what it would be like if we had a child together? And what it would be like if she died first?”
Running from the 23-27 of August in Temple Bar’s The New Theatre, at 7.30pm. Tickets are ON SALE NOW!
