Twisted Focus in collaboration with Dublin Theatre Company are staging a production of Apples by Richard Milward and John Rettalack to be directed by Ronan Wilmot.

Apples is a play about sex and the city when you’re 15.

 “Apples cocks an unflinching hard-stare at the sharp end of teenage life, and the play is edgy, exciting and quite brilliant. The drugs, the sex, the boozing… it all smacks beautifully of the real thing.” Time Out

It has toured the UK and was a winner of the coveted Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. For its Irish debut we’re taking this gritty yet comic fairytale and setting it in Ballymun.


Rehearsals: 3 weeks full time Mon to Fri 3rd September till 21st

Performance Dates: 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th September

This will be a profit –share production.


Auditions will be held the morning of Friday 11th in The Gaiety School of Acting, Essex Street West, Dublin 8.

Actors will be required to perform sides from the play which will be emailed along with an audition slot.
