Drama on the Theatre Stage
Behind the scenes
Here are some backstage photos (my apologies for the quality but they were taken with my iPod) from Strule Arts Centre in Omagh where I have performed. The play was called “Deadly Cocktail” for which purposes I also took part in writing a script and I was a prop manager.
The play was a TiE (Theatre in Education) production that consisted a play itself, workshop activities and education pack. The play showed how people are influenced by alcohol and how this can lead to street violence. It’s aim was to make an audience aware of the impact that alcohol has on the choices of individuals. It showed the consequences of street violence and how dangerous streets at night may be. The target audience (teenagers/young adults/18+) could learn the importance of keeping themselves safe on the night out as well as that they “have to be responsible for their own actions.”
What made this play different was that it didn’t show victim’s side only, it also showed the impact on the offender’s life. In the audience there were special guests invited including a local family of the dead victim of violence insult in the area.

Here I would quote myself again:
“Be aware of what step You take,
You cannot go back and fix it afterwards.”
