Acting Out present

‘Standing on Ceremony: short plays about marriage’ 

27th and 28th March, The Outhouse, 105 Capel Street, Dublin

In aid of Marriage Equality 


Originally written to support the Equal Marriage Campaign in the USA these nine short plays by leading American Playwrights including Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, Fat Pig), Moises Kaufman (The Laramie Project) and Paul Rudkin (In and Out, Jeffrey) explore the effect of marriage or impending marriage on same sex couples with a mix of humour, pathos and righteous indignation. A new comic piece set in an Irish context has also been specially written for the show, in which a couple fall out over whether a Civil Partnership really is a wedding. All proceeds from the show will be going to support the Marriage Equality Campaign.

About Acting Out 

Acting Out is a community drama group drawn from theLGBT community in Dublin and the surrounding area, and is the resident drama group at the Outhouse on Capel Street. As a group they devise, improvise and create, exploring drama in workshop form, encourage new writers and explore queer classics. They aim to do two to three productions per year. They also collaborate with LGBT community groups for example, the NLGF and The Outhouse, on a show called, “Making Out” for National Coming Out Day, and Marriage Equality for a production of, “Standing on Ceremony”. Recent shows have included, “Gross indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde” and “gay:dad” a documentary theatre piece about the relationship of gay men with their fathers. This last piece was also chosen for the Outburst Queer Arts Festival 2013 in Belfast.
