Brain Teasers - A Mind Blowing Children’s Play!

‘Brain Teasers’ is a play entirely written and performed, under the guidance of Angela Ryan of Jasango Theatre, by members of the Puttaghaun Youth Drama Project. Over the last year, young people from Puttaghaun Estate in Tullamore were introduced to script writing, dance and drama. They worked with directors Angela Ryan, Cabrini Cahill, choreographer Michelle Cahill and visual artist Emma Barone and were mentored by members of the Offaly Youth Theatre. The play ‘Brain Teasers’ is their own work, entirely devised and performed by the young people. Many of the young people were new to these experiences, but over the year through their commitment and hard work they have developed into budding young actors and storytellers.
Jasango Theatre was commissioned in 2012 by Offaly County Council and Tullamore Town Council to deliver a Public Art Youth Drama Project with the children of Puttaghaun . The project is funded under the Department of Environment, Community and Local Governments per cent for art scheme. Jasango Theatre, Offaly County Council and Tullamore Town Council wish to thank all parents for their support over the project and invite all to come and enjoy this new mind blowing play.
