Presented by Brokentalkers & Adrienne Truscott
Featuring the savagely comedic feminist discourse of Adrienne Truscott with the slippery dramaturgy of Brokentalkers, MASTERCLASS parodies the “great male artist” to within an inch of his life in order to uncover some difficult truths about privilege and power.
The show begins in the form of a cockamamie masterclass performed by fed up feminist Adrienne Truscott and all around good guy Feidlim Cannon. It’s fun. It’s familiar. There are wigs. But there is something more at play.
Using the arts world as a metaphor, MASTERCLASS is a literate and hilarious examination of gender and power.
★★★★★ – The Irish Times
“This is highly entertaining, each moment underpinned by a fizzing comic energy.” “This is a sparklingly provocative romp. The political vision is flavoured by, but never sacrificed to, a core mission to excite, divert and entertain.”
– The Irish Independent
“Damn me, it’s hilarious.” – The Sunday Independent
“Masterclass is about provoking, not problem solving. And having a lot of fun while doing it.” – ★★★★ – The Arts Review
Masterclass was co-produced by Dublin Fringe Festival, Project Arts Centre and Mermaid Arts Centre, supported by The Arts Council of Ireland.
