Neptune Calling

Red Bear’s new production is a live theatre installation bringing the energy of the Irish Sea to audiences in the most unlikely of places. This September ‘Neptune Calling’ will be in outdoor locations across South Dublin County.

A funny, thought-provoking story of an unlikely friendship between two very different women. Sara – young, naive and optimistic and Helen – older, cynical who believes the powers that be know more than they should.

A mixture of sensory experiences, with a beautiful script by Eoghan Quinn, (Stewart Parker Award nominee).

Voiced by Aoibhéann McCann & Geraldine Plunkett and performed by Robyn Byrne.
Written by  Eoghan Quinn
Directed by Tracy Martin
Duration 50 minutes. 

About the Production
The audience will arrive on site to be seated deck chairs and given headphones through which they will hear waves crash, seagulls holler and swimmers greet one another. As the performance starts the sound focuses in on Sara; her thoughts and the conversations she has with herself, Helen and most importantly – the sea.
A mixture of sensory experiences, a beautiful script by Eoghan Quinn, voiced by Aoibheann McCann and Geraldine Plunkett and a choreographed movement piece performed by dancer Robyn Byrne.
