The excellent young theatre company – Devious Theatre Company, Kilkenny did not disappoint their growing number of fans with Scratcher, written and directed and acted in by John Morton. Now in their fifth year, they still display a wicked sense of humour, an almost manic physical style of theatre as they set their play in a Dole Office.

They now have Arts Council support, as well as embarking on a project In The Future When All’s Well with a residency with an in Kilkenny Arts Office in 76 John Street. Scratcher is the first part of this residency and the In The Future quote is from Morrissey but it sounds Shakespearean.
