BareBones Youth Past Production


by Sharon Cromwell and the Droichead Youth Theatre

Because this youth company has, of necessity, age limits,
it’s composition changes every year. Sometimes the
membership bias is towards older boys, sometimes towards
younger girls. We may cast for thirty one year and fifteen the
next. This moving target makes it difficult to identify plays
which are appropriate to the available cast, are good of their
type, and will be stimulating and enjoyable for the members.
This year we made contact with Ireland’s National Association
of Youth Drama and have chosen to cast one of the three
plays selected by the Association as the best pieces
performed by their member groups in 2013. .
The play is the result of extensive role play and improvisation
by the Droichead Youth Theatre under the direction of Sharon
Cromwell. Anyone who has worked with creative young people
will recognise the fast freewheeling style where the
medium has no limitations and film and television are a prime
influence. .
