Moonlight and Doubt in Tricycle autumn season

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 21 April 2008

The Tricycle's autumn season has been released and features the world premiere of Dublin-set drama The Pride Of Parnell Street, Ron Hutchinson's golden age of Hollywood comedy Moonlight And Magnolias, and Pulitzer Prize-winner Doubt: A Parable.

The Pride Of Parnell Street, the new play from multi-award winning playwright and novelist Sebastian Barry, is presented at the Tricycle by Irish company Fishamble between 4 and 22 September. Set in Dublin, the play's interweaving monologues tell of a marriage and a time that have passed, and explore the effects of private and public acts of violence.

Fishamble was founded in 1988, then called Pigsback. The company strives to discover, develop and produce new plays in Dublin and around the world. Barry's other plays include Our Lady Of Sligo, Hinterland and Whistling Psyche, which was staged at the Almeida in 2004.

Director Sean Holmes takes charge of Moonlight And Magnolias, which runs from 27 September to 3 November. Ron Hutchinson's touching comic tale is set in 1930s Hollywood, where movie mogul David O Selznick has just stopped production on Gone With The Wind. Determined to succeed, he hires "script doctor" Ben Hecht, who has never read the book, and poaches director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard Of Oz. With all three men locked in Selznick's office, a mammoth creative session begins.

Doubt: A Parable (22 Nov-12 Jan) ran for two years on Broadway, winning both the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play in 2005. The Tricycle's production is directed by the Kilburn venue's Artistic Director Nicolas Kent, whose most recent production was political piece Called To Account.

Doubt: A Parable is set in a Bronx Catholic School in the year following the assassination of John F Kennedy. A strong-minded nun has doubts about the behaviour of priest Father Flynn towards the school's first black student. As her suspicions grow, she embarks on a campaign to have the priest removed.

Currently playing at the Tricycle is Evita For President, which stars South African satirist Pieter-Dirk Uys as his comic creation, the most famous white woman in South Africa and possible future president, Evita Bezuidenhout.
