MALAPROP will send you a text a day. Don’t write back...
Some day, Where Sat the Lovers will be a live theatre show by MALAPROP. It’s going to have lava lamps and hallucinations and codes and seats and lights and people. It will be about seeing meaning where there’s none and vice versa. But for now, because we can’t all be together in one place, it’s a series of messages sent to your phone, by us, over the course of seven days. Videos, links, thoughts, suggestions.
Epistles is a glimpse into the world of Where Sat the Lovers: who the characters are, what they’re thinking and talking about, and what Isaac Newton’s favourite emoji would be if he was alive now.
Epistles is not a digital copy of WSTL the live show. It’s a companion, a commentary, a riff. Some of the time it’ll be us speaking to you directly. (More or less.) Some of the time it’ll be the characters from the live show. (More or less.) Where exactly the line between author and actor falls may not be clear. Which is fun, right?
WSTL: Epistles will be presented as part of both Carlow Arts Festival and Cork Midsummer Festival. Though these two versions will be similar, they won’t be exactly the same. So you can do both, if you want.
Please note: you will need an internet enabled phone to experience this show. We will also need your name and phone number. This data will be retained solely for the purposes of distributing the show and will not be shared with third parties.
