The standard of production at GAA never fail to blow me away. They are always topical, unique and fresh, and a huge variety from musicals, serious drama, shakespeare, pantomime, improvised and scripted.

We are once again taking part in the National Theatre Connections. This year we shall be performing The It by Vivienne Franzmann. The IT is a play about a teenage girl who has something growing inside her. She doesn't know what it is, but she knows it's not a baby. What is it? It makes a noise, like a lizard or a snake. No one must know about it. She has to keep its presence, its possession of her, concealed. She pulls away from her friends. She refuses to speak in case The It is heard. Then the It tries to escape from her body. She can't let that happen. She cuts an isolated weird figure at school, trying to live her life 'normally; but battling to keep The It inside of her. But she can't contain it forever, sooner or later something's got to give...Tickets are onsale for the 7th and 8th of March at our home venue before we take it to the Traverse Theatre.
