Post-show Q&A with Raymond Scannell, moderated by Artistic Director of Theatre, Rex Daugherty
Join us for another radio drama from RTÉ Drama on One.
DEEP is written and performed by Raymond Scannell and directed by Tom Creed. A radio version of the acclaimed stage production. It’s the summer of 1988 and Cork’s emigration generation are following the beat… in perfect time, for a Music Movement simmering from Sir Henry’s, the original home of house music in Ireland.
Raymond Scannell is one of Ireland's most exciting new voices: blending theatre, dance music, and performance art into a dynamic storytelling event.
