'Phoenix Rising' (5th Year Play) Two shows in the New Theatre in Temple Bar.
Mount Temple presents its timely production of ‘Phoenix Rising’ in the New Theatre on Friday, the 1st and
Saturday the 2nd of June.
Following its very successful premiere at the Holqua Theatre Festival in Malta, the play continues to touch
audiences as it responds to the #MeToo movement and the related issues of consent, victim shaming and
Laura Doak directs this multi-media devised ensemble piece with choreography by Ciaran Gray.
Last year Mount Temple gained critical acclaim for ‘Eire:Land of 100,000 Welcomes’, a production that
explored Ireland’s attitude towards asylum seekers and refugees. The same critical exploration of our
society exists in this production.
It was astoundingly good. No preaching just peerless truth telling. In awe of writer/director Laura Doak &
students of @MountTempleArts
