Dummy by Peter Dunne

Growing up as children of a celebrity ventriloquist, family problems regularly become front page fodder. Especially when your parent is a national joke.

Burned by the glare of the spotlight, Teddy is a recluse, his only companion the dummy on his arm. But when his sister Dolly has a meltdown live on children’s television, the family home receives a couple of new house guests. One of them wooden.

Throwing tantrums as well as voices, the whole family take to the stage. But which dummy is in control? From Peter Dunne, writer of This Year’s Girl, Eerie, Inhabitance and BROADENING, comes a dark-hearted comedy about guilt, trauma and ventriloquism sure to set tongues wagging.

Inhabitance


Inhabitance by Peter Dunne

Inhabitance


Inhabitance by Peter Dunne


Society is in freefall. Violence is epidemic. Gangs roam the streets. And Lucy Hill is missing.
Her mother, Priscilla, has done everything to find her. Police have been called. Streets scoured and appeals launched.
But Lucy is fading from memory, fast. 
If the public could only connect with Lucy, understand her, listen to her story, maybe they could help to find her. If only there was a way to make people care. 

Inhabitance - welcome to the future of mass entertainment.

Broadening


Broadening by Peter Dunne

BROADENING Poster - Project Arts Centre 2013

Broadening is about a social experiment that takes place on a college campus in the 1970s. It is a fractured look at how, during this huge period of change, people are caught up in the rush to be rebels, to be forces of change, to be part of a new world and how this is used against them, turning them into monsters and victims. It looks at the nature of authority, power and how far you can be pushed away from what you think you are.

Before Colour


Before Colour by Peter Dunne

Before Colour


Before Colour by Peter Dunne

Before Colour is set in Depression Era Hollywood and concerns the warped Brooks family. Studio-head father, aging starlet mother and their three damaged daughters. It deals with the hunger for power, glamour and money, and takes dark detours into murder, mutilation, sexual deviancy and the damning nature of familial loyalty. It looks at what people would do to not only to get what they want but to hold onto what they have and how the love for another can lead to darkness.

 

Written and Directed by Peter Dunne

Produced by Eimear Morrissey

COLOURFUL MEMOIR IS A NOD TO MONSTEROUS JOAN

Emer o'Kelly

Published 21/09/2008 | 00:00  Sunday Independent

The Fringe is not supposed to be about dreary old text-based work; it's supposed, in the Dublin Fringe's own phrase, to "push the envelope.

So why does it always seem that some of its best and most thought-provoking work seems to fall into the category of text? Could it be that old-fashioned thought and discipline are the best way to performance excellence? Just a thought.

Hollywood noir and the Hollywood Gothic tale have inspired more than one writer in the past, sometimes with alarmingly bad results. But Peter Dunne's Before Colour for Wicked Angels (at Bewley's Cafe Theatre) is anything but bad; in fact, it has genuinely camp humour and some very chilling moments. It concerns a movie mogul and his studio star wife during the Great Depression, the days of the silent movies.

It nods in the direction of Christina Crawford's horribly credible memoir of her monstrous mother Joan; it also nods in passing to Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?.

All right, Before Colour does go a bit all over the place in its psychological motivation, and it is the mogul's daughter who seems to have least to complain of (she's the one of three sisters who isn't prostituted by her father for the studio investors or pushed into murder to avoid scandal) who ends up mutilating herself by cutting off her fingers. But if you have a fondness for the outsize and outrageous in your classic movie entertainment, it's great gas.
