Storybook and Seven Versions of a Song will be making their triumphant returns, swathed in glory at this year’s Unfringed festival in Limerick city.

Tickets for both shows are €10 and are available from the Belltable box-office on 061 319866.


"Sweeping the snow away he found a small gold key."

We’re taking the format of STORYBOOK, originally developed as part of Project Brand New, and taken through the Electric Picnic & Fortheloveof LIVE, and telling some completely new stories. We’ve also got a new live score composed and performed by the inimitable Luke McGuire.

Described as “beautiful”, “real delicate” and “a just celebration of life (x2)”, STORYBOOK is an evening of storytelling for adults. It features a live music from Luke McGuire, live illustration from James Tuomey and storytelling from Duncan Molloy.

Put it in your diary:
Wednesday, January 26th at 9.15pm in the Belltable, 69 O’Connell Street.
Thursday, January  27th at 7pm in Red Cross Hall, Cecil Street.
Saturday, January 29th at 2pm in Red Cross Hall, Cecil Street.


Dancing is good for the soul.

Following its premiere as a work in Progress at Daghdha last year, and a very quick tour to Belfast, SEVEN VERSIONS OF A SONG has been refined, rejigged, and relaxed. It is ready to once more warm/break your heart. A song and a dance about love with words by Duncan Molloy, movement by Cathy Walsh and music by Ger O’Donnell and Jean Wallace, it’s part of the Limerick Dance Triple Bill.

Saturday, January 29th & Sunday, January 30th at 5pm in Red Cross Hall, Cecil Street.

There’s lots of other great stuff on, the full programme can be found at http://www.belltable.ie .
Hope to see you there.

Duncan’s Mixtape (Seven Versions of a Song)

Prizes for whoever can tell me where this wall is.

Hi guys,

Duncan here, founder of the LSA and one half of Seven Versions of A Song. You might be wondering why we have an online presence at all, beyond just as a reminder of when shows are happening. The answer is simple:

You are the reason we are putting on plays.

If you’d like to buy us a coffee or a pint, go for it. Failing that, this is how we have chats. Tell us what you think, what you liked, what you didn’t, how your life’s going, your feelings on the recapitalisation of Anglo, whatever. To kickstart a conversation we’re going to put up extra stuff that pertains to the things we make. So here’s a good old fashioned mixtape:

Duncan’s Youtube Mixtape

I’ve been rehearsing Seven Versions of a Song for a little over a month at this stage, and it’s been a lot of fun. I’ve been working on ideas with Cathy and the band in Daghdha and drinking coffee/writing at home and a lot of it has involved of listening to music. The piece is a duet about two sides of a relationship, through dance and talking, and we’ll have our own score but there’s other music that has inspired ideas, or brought up memories, or been lashed on in the background to dance to. In no particular order here are my Seven Songs:

Gorillaz – On Melancholy Hill
Beirut – Scenic World
Sufjan Stevens – The Dress looks nice on you
3epkano – Lullaby for Isobel
Chemical Brothers – Close your Eyes
Waterboys – Fishermans Blues
TV on the Radio – Wolf like me
