Shifting - Audio Shorts

We’re here. We’ve arrived. The week of Shifting.

Tickets have been flying out the door to the point that if you’re looking for a ticket for tonight’s opening performance, Saturday’s closing performance and Good Friday, then you may well be out of luck. Tickets for Tuesday through Thursday are still available to buy online or in person from the Arts Office (box office open from 10am daily).

Anyway, before we even got to the point of opening the show, we had been planning a series of audio shorts to promote Shifting. This is something we did for Smitten back in 2008 in a very small capacity (30 second audio trailers) but for Shifting we decided we would put some of our younger writers to the task once more to come up with some short stories based on the definition of the word shifting.

Shifting: Exchange

The first piece, dubbed ‘Exchange’ looks at the definition of shifting as being to replace one object with another or others. Exchange was written by Rhian Gibson, who plays Hillary, and was voiced by Stephanie Cassin who joins us for the first time as part of our front of house team for the week.

Shifting: To Transfer

The second piece, To Transfer, looks at the definition of shifting as being to transfer from one place to another – think of the cot to school, school to college, college and beyond. This piece was written and voiced by John Kennedy, who plays Jamie in Shifting and is also the one responsible for writing the production.

Shifting: Kissing

The final piece of the installment looks at the definition of the word shifting as meaning kissing, pure Kilkenny slang. It was written by Eleanor Walsh, the youngest of our fair group for this production, and is voiced by Sorcha O’Boyle who previously worked with is on Scratcher earlier in year.

All three pieces aired first on KCLR 96FM before hitting the web and our thanks go to KCLR and Edwina Grace for facilitating the shorts and for having the cast on air last Friday.

All of the shorts were recorded here at the Arts Office.

So, while you get busy to listening to our Shifting Audio Shorts, we’re getting busy with the very last of the set dressing and cleaning up before opening the doors later this evening. Doors open at 7:30pm and sight may be restricted, given the work is very site specific. On that note we’re recommending you arrive early and on time, with the show kicking off at 8pm.

See all y’all later…
