TU Dublin Conservatoire Presents Eight by Ella Hickson

14 Jan, 2021

The final year students of the BA in Drama Performance are starring in Eight - a series of monologues written by Ella Hickson for the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where the show won a 'Best in Edinburgh' award and a Fringe First award.

Despite the show's name, Eight tells the story of nine characters ranging in age from late teens to early thirties. The characters' stories are not connected, and each monologue offers a stand-alone narrative.

Performed and recorded by two separate casts,  Eight will be available on-demand on four Thursdays from January 7th with casts alternating weekly.

Tickets for all performances are €10 and are available to purchase here.
