Three women in a psychiatric hospital meet for a therapeutic drama lesson.  Jones, an ex-professional actress, adopts the role of teacher.  The other two women – Dawn, a neurotic day-dreamer, and Hannah, an apparently “normal” dispassionate person – portray her students.  From the outset we learn that the lesson is carefully controlled to extract information regarding a gruesome murder.

Blue Hat Drama Group

Blue Hat Drama Group is based in Whitechurch, Co.Cork. The club was set up in 2001 and first became involved in the One Act Festival circuit in 2005. The club usually has a one act production for winter and a full length play for the spring. This year, for the first time, they have entered plays in the Open and Confined sections of the One Act Festival.  They have a strong and dedicated team of actors, directors and technical crew and are looking forward to performing on the circuit this year.
