‘Tear Up The Ground’ Wins St Andrew’s One Act Play Festival
‘Tear Up the Ground’ Sweeps The Boards
The Creative Arts and Digital Learning Centre provided a wonderfully atmospheric setting for the ‘home coming’ of the cast and crew of ‘Tear Up The Ground’ which won Best Play, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and the Adjudicators Award for Best Writing, Execution and Overall Production at the 2017 St. Andrew’s One Act Drama Festival.
Written by my colleagues Mr. Maher and Mr. Cleary, performed by Roy Geary (6th Year), Cian Hasson, Harry Kearns, Hugh Kelly and Louis Keyes (all 5th Year) with stage management by Stephen Ryan (5th Year), it certainly lived up to expectation!
“Tear Up The Ground is a funny and disquiting exploration of family life and the intergenerational nature of the effect we can have on those closest to us as we all strive to establish a genuine sense of belonging in our lives”. [Writer’s notes]
Both disquieting and funny, the play is rich with pathos and poignancy. It is a work of Art.
We congratulate and we celebrate all involved.
