Stagecraft explores the lives of young migrants in FUGEE
Stagecraft are in the final phase of rehearsals for FUGEE by multi-award wining writer Abi Morgan. ‘FUGEE' plays at The Hub, 49 Albert Street for two nights only on Friday 15 and Saturday 16th May.
FUGEE explores the world of migrants seeking refuge. This topical subject was tackled by Stagecraft’s inaugural production ‘How Quickly We Forget’ in 1998 and is as relevant today as it was then. FUGEE is a brilliant exploration of what it’s like to be a young person finding their way in a new country and negotiating a system that seems firmly rigged against them. It is a compelling tale of friendship, loyalty and young love, framed beautifully around a tragic life changing incident.
Abi Morgan is one of the most interesting voices writing today. She has won numerous awards for her work and is most renowned for her recent collaboration with Steve Mc Queen and Michael Fassbender on ‘Shame', which won her a BAFTA Award for an Outstanding British Film. She has written extensively for theatre, working at London’s Royal Court Theatre on numerous occasions and winning an Olivier Award as most promising playwright. Her screenplay ‘The Iron Lady’ was a enlightening glimpse into Thatcher, and the woman behind the facade, depicted by the mighty Meryl Streep established her as one of the most dynamic writers of today.
Stagecraft is one of Ireland’s leading youth theatre’s and is renowned for producing gripping and vibrant work for young actors. As well as producing vibrant and exciting plays they offer a year long programme of drama and musical theatre training for young people from 6 to 21 years of age. ‘FUGEE’ is directed by the talented Jack Reardon, assisted by Ciara Laste, with movement direction by Shane Dempsey.
