worked with a cast of 40 teenagers to produce a new play inspifed
by Marlowe's Dr Faustus and by the Faust legends.
This production was the
culmination of our third Summer Project and was directed by Sarah Thornton.
was a hugely successful adaptation which kept the structure of
the original story. This version was about an 18-year-old girl
who sells her soul to the devil. This device enabled the young
cast to devise and debate as to what she would want to achieve
as a parallel to the original. The production featured great imagery
and was also a first in that we changed the shape of Garter Lane
by removing the middle bank of seats, thus having a traverse theatre.
Summer Project is produced in association with Waterford Corporation
and Garter Lane Arts Centre and has the central aim of giving
young people the opportunity of working with professional theatre
directors. Our two previous directors were Jimmy Fay (Bedrock)
and Pat Kiernan (Corcadorca).
