Following success at the Dublin Fringe Festival and supported by the Arts Council, Dick Walsh’s Oneday will tour venues in Wexford, Limerick, Kerry, Monaghan and Cavan in September.
The show will be performed in Wexford Arts Centre on Thursday, September 5th. This is a particularly important stage of the tour, as the show was developed in Wexford Arts Centre, and in Cowhouse Studios Wexford. So this is very much regarded as “bringing the show home for this performance!
Oneday is a look at a single day’s news and a meditation on the link between power and knowledge. Probing and frenetic, the show examines our unraveling and chaotic relationship with social media, news outlets and the media in general. It is a timely piece; a wake for our shared understanding of what’s happening in the world today.
Three years in the making, a director, an actor, and a drummer attempt to encapsulate a day that was reported in over three million articles worldwide. It explores our obsession as a nation with the news and with storytelling and is an investigation of the subjective nature of reporting that becomes ever more prescient in a world which is branded as “post-truth” and where news is all too often decried as “fake”. Taking local, national, and international newspaper articles as its frame, it seeks to find one unified truth from confused and tangled blend of perspectives.
Oneday will be performed in Wexford Arts Centre on Thursday, September 5th, at 8 pm. Enquiries and ticket sales at 053 9123764 or firstname.lastname@example.org
