Our third and final open workshop for Shaking the Tale. Newcomers welcome!

This is our third and final open workshop for our Shaking the Walls summer production.
We are looking for actors and participants from the local community to take part in this unique theatrical event.
Whether you’re an experienced actor or a complete beginner, the workshop is free and open to everyone aged 18 or over.
From 11am to 2pm the workshop will be theatre based, and then we’re inviting any musicians, singers or indeed anyone who wants to stay, for a music workshop with the composer from 2.30pm till 5pm. This will be our last open workshop before casting so please encourage anyone you know who you think would enjoy the experience to come along.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring water and snacks.


Two Kingdoms, Sicilia and Bohemia divided by an ocean. Two kings, raised together, but at odds over the love of a woman. Lost princes, prison sentences, tragic deaths, bears and ocean voyages, and finally, a mysterious and magical ending that restores peace between the kingdoms. It is a problem play, a text with multiple personalities, but ultimately it explores conflict, reconciliation and borders. It is also Shakespeare’s Brexit masterpiece.

Performances will be held outdoors in Letterkenny and Inishowen during the Earagail Arts Festival this July.
