Transition Year Drama

                                                          TY Drama 2015
                                               'The Bad Apple' by Maeve Stone
                                      69 O' Connell Street (formerly the Belltable )

Rehearsals are well underway for this year's TY Drama Production which will see over 80 students take to the stage in a new play by Maeve Stone. Maeve is a past pupil of Villiers. We are particularly proud that this is the third play of Maeve's that our students will perform.

In a world where technology has replaced meaningful communication, where dinner-time is divided between phone-calls and skyping and family loyalty is bought by new gadgets, the Eye-Brain 4 is launched by Apfel, a seemingly harmless corporation. Beneath the surface, however, lurks the dark intentions of Pink Lady and her coven of apple witches, vying for world control.

Only haphazard scientists and children fighting for the freedom of their parents, battling internet bugs and trolls, stand in her way.

In a brand new play by Maeve Stone, The Bad Apple shines a humorous light on technology and society. Directed by Ann Blake and Niamh Bowen The Bad Apple will be brought to the stage by Villiers Transition Year students performing and working on all aspects of production.

The play opens for two nights Thursday Jan 29th  and Friday January 30th at 8pm.
Tickets available from School reception.
