Cross Street curtain call
In 2020 Fregoli Theatre Company embarked on their “Finding Home” residency at The Roscommon Arts Centre. They explored the theme of home in a year when the meaning of home became entirely different. And now, Fregoli Theatre are delighted to announce their return as Theatre Company in residence at The Roscommon Arts Centre to continue this exploration. Fregoli Theatre Company’s residency is supported by The Roscommon Arts Centre and The Arts Council.
As part of their residency in 2020, Fregoli reimagined their work presenting a number of digital productions including:
All of the above was available to view on our website: Fregoli Theatre Company . They can now be viewed by request via the website or via email to www.fregolitheatre.com
2020 also saw the beginning of ‘Cross Street’ : a new play written by Jarlath Tivnan. We released a virtual rehearsed reading of this work in progress filmed by Mimar Productions. It is a comedy drama with hints of horror set in shared accommodation. It explores how mental issues can grow and manifest when left to fester. Each housemate in struggles with their own ghosts purposefully isolating themselves from anyone who may interfere or help. The housemates struggle with grief, guilt, alcoholism, eating disorders, neglect, self-harm and self-doubt.
As part of the residency in 2021 Fregoli will continue to develop Cross Street gearing up for a full production (Covid permitting). We will also now embark on an exciting new programme of work that will include professional development, peer learning as well as community based engagements at locations throughout the county, bringing some theatrical craic and madness to communities and groups across Roscommon.
