On Tuesday 14th of October, in the intimate atmosphere of The Dock, the extraordinary actor, writer and musician Raymond Scannell will take us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of an era.
Sir Henry’s in the ‘90s....Were you there? Over ten years ago the spiritual home of Cork’s first generation of ravers closed forever. DEEP, from one of Cork’s finest theatre-makers, marks the occasion by exploring the social and political backdrop of the time.
It’s the summer of 1988 and Cork’s emigration generation are taking refuge from their troubles on the dance floor, following the beat of a new musical movement bursting from Ireland’s first House club. Among them is Larry Lehane, a vinyl junkie who remains loyal to the music as the scene crumbles around him.
Turning the tables on two decades, DEEP examines the evolution of Cork’s Underground. Featuring footage of nights at the club and exclusive documentary interviews with the club’s main figures, writer and performer Scannell moves with ease through the myriad characters he conveys. From troubled father to high maintenance girlfriend, from Irish Mammy to rebellious teenager, we are with him for them all and enthralled by them all. Put simply, DEEP is a really great show and we hope you can come and enjoy it with us on Tuesday 14th October. Tickets, priced at €16/€14, are available now from 0719650828 or on line at www.thedock.ie.
