Clinic Media present The Spiral Season in the Granary Studio

Clinic Media, in association with The Granary Theatre, will present a season of plays called The Spiral Season in the Studio space throughout February, March and April.

Granary Artistic director Tony McCleane-Fay says;

The Granary has teamed up with local production company, Clinic Media, to bring you The Spiral Season. Spiral is all about contemporary work, about a re-imagining of older work and about focusing on the text and the performance. Plays are stripped of their settings and props, the emphasis here is on the words, the characters and the plot. The Granary Studio is a place where new work is made on an almost daily basis through rehearsals, readings, workshops and taught drama programmes. The Studio as a venue presents challenges for a director, no theatrical lighting, drapes or platforms, limited seating and white walls. Spiral is about innovation and creativity, transforming a white box into the intimate world of the play. No smoke or mirrors. Grotowski stated that ‘spectacle’ was taking us away from the most important part of theatre, the immediacy between the actor and the audience. Spiral reinstates the immediacy.

The plays in the season are as follows;
