Electric is a play that I wrote and performed in which we opened in Theatre Upstairs last year. We then went on to tour the show around different venues in Ireland and received great reviews (please see quotes below). I have produced the show under my theatre company ILA Productions which I started with my brother Sam Hardiman. Sam wrote all the music for the show.
The play is a comedy about two girls, from either sides of the tracks, who meet at Electric Picnic and work to break down the barriers that divide them.
I am absolutely delighted to have been accepted to perform the show at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August, the show will run for 25 days in Underbelly.
However with this wonderful opportunity come big expenses and we are currently working hard to raise the money to cover the costs of our travel, accommodation and venue hire.
I would really appreciate your support!
Baby wipes, glitter and cans at the ready, Joni and Scarlett head off on their respective weekends. From two sides of Dublin City and residing on two sides of the festival, the pair unexpectedly meet in the neon fields of Electric Picnic. Hysterically riotous and soul-stirring ELECTRIC probes our innate prejudices and preconceived notions of who we are, while taking you on the session of a lifetime!
