‘The Importance of Nothing’ – at Arts Centre



As part of a national tour, The Importance of Nothing comes to the Roscommon Arts Centre, Roscommon on the 7th of April, 2018.

  The Importance of Nothing is comedy about a drama therapy class which focuses on the work of Oscar Wilde in an imaginary prison.

  Directed by Gavin Quinn, it has an ensemble cast of Andrew Bennett, Una McKevitt, Mark O’Halloran, Judith Roddy and Dylan Tighe.

  Oscar Wilde’s material is used by drama therapist Lady Lancing to test the prisoners’ patience and imaginations. They, the prisoners, are challenged to refashion or completely overhaul Oscar Wilde’s material.

  The Irish Times says: “Director Gavin Quinn and the ensemble employ a rigorous and wide-ranging understanding of their subject in order to fracture him in so many disarming ways”.

  The play combines great literary work with humour. The Irish Independent says: “All performances are top notch”.
