Colored Theatre Lights


Walking Down the Aisle

In a new initiative, the Gap Arts Festival 2021 invited submissions from anywhere in Ireland: write a short scene, a maximum of one thousand words, with either one or two characters. And a selection would be presented by professional directors and actors at the festival. 

From a supermarket checkout woman to an all-night search for a missing hen, from women of fifty on dating sites to a trade union organiser being let go, the variety of themes and styles is astonishing.

"The first play performed was Walking Down the Aisle by Álanna Hammel which was a light hearted piece telling the story of a supermarket worker with big dreams."
