A new podcast from Dublin's historic Gate Theatre, featuring a diverse and exciting range of discussions with leading artists, thinkers and idea-makers.
CHILDREN OF THE SUN - Discussion and Excerpts from a Gate Studio Workshop
Originally published in 1905, Maxim Gorky’s rarely seen dark comedy Children of the Sun has been radically and brilliantly re-imagined by playwright Matthew Minnicino and director Marc Atkinson Borrull.
As part of the Gate Studio, the play was workshopped remotely during the pandemic with an award-winning creative team and a cast of Irish and American actors. These extracts from the process, alongside a discussion with Matthew Minnicino and Marc Atkinson Borrull, offer unique and revealing insights into the ongoing development of this dynamic new theatrical work.
