In 2012 we set aside our leather pants to write and perform the play Clowns, which premiered at the Dublin Fringe Festival. The story of three beleaguered children’s entertainers battling poverty, repetitive strain injuries and creative differences; the play drew on our experiences of touring, arguing and taking a ludicrous job incredibly seriously. It was nominated for the Fishamble New Writing Award.
Since then we have been developing it as a screen play and we are delighted to say that, earlier this year, we were awarded production funding by the Irish Film Board to turn Clowns into our second feature film. Directed by George Kane, and produced the Ashmore Films and Fastnet Films. Send in the Clowns is currently in preproduction, and will hopefully be shooting late 2018 or early 2019.
We will be updating on our facebook page though (probably a lot of juggling videos) so you can follow us there for more info.
