On Saturday 13 April at 8.00pm glór studio in Ennis will host The Flowersellers of Amiens, the latest show by Clare Youth Theatre.

The story, which has been devised and created by the Theatre members with directors Eleanor Feely and Clare Townsend, takes place during World War 1 and the turbulent times of that period. Set in Dublin and then in a bombed out convent in northern France, the young cast have created characters who explore what humanity is in a time of war. Through humour, song and tragedy the young people of Clare Youth Theatre demonstrate their vision of morality and hope, against the odds.

Clare Youth Theatre is an initiative of the Clare County Arts Office. Its unique ethos is to explore young people’s innate creativity by giving them the skills to develop autonomy over their artistic projects and to engage in a collaborative way with their community and in topics of interest to them.

This year alone the group has engaged with an Egyptian writer in creating a Christmas story, has met members of the Polish community, been guests of Ennis Book Festival and has been working with musician Andy Spearpoint to create dramatised scenes from Mexican writer Emilio Rioja’s ‘Little Friend’.  The group has also created two intergenerational projects with their friends, the residents of St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Tickets for The Flowersellers of Amiens are €8/5 and available at 065 6843103 www.glor.ie.
