  • The Game

Theatre, Stage & Film

TheatreCLUB are a young, collaborative theatre company who make work that fizzes with energy. They manage to be in tune with the zeitgeist at all times, exploring issues and subjects that feel timely and incredibly necessary.

This devised work, The Game, premiered in 2015 as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival, and now the show is travelling with its message to Draiocht in Blanchardstown.

The Game, devised by Gemma Collins, Grace Dyas and Lauren Larkin, with the input of women who have been involved in sex work or exited prostitution, asks questions about the act of buying sex.

Five men volunteer at each performance - none have played The Game before, but now they must, without a script.

The Game is really an exploration of the language and behaviours that surround power and authority. It is an uneasy piece of theatre, but every moment of it is incredibly rewarding and eye-opening.

During the process of production, the theatre-makers collaborated with women like Rachel Moran and Mia deFaoite, who have experienced The Game first hand, adding a thoughtfulness and authenticity which really brings home the work's messages about morality, the law, and society.
