We Have Moved!

ReActors has moved its office to brand new digs! 

It's with heavy hearts that we leave behind our home of the last 19 (!) years at Eden Quay. We are very excited, however, to be relocating to 30 Wicklow Street, where we'll be just down the hall from our illustrious fellow co-ops, Castaway and Frontline! 

We can be found in our new home (pictured) from tomorrow (Monday). Our phone number remains the same, but should there be any teething problems with the landline in the coming days, you can catch us on our mobile - 085 8826440.

Here's to the next 19 years!

NEW DATE FOR YEATS WOMEN

Reactors Glynis Casson and Daniel Costello are bringing their show Yeats Women to the Ilac Library for Heritage week. The show is on the 22nd of August at 1pm 

ReActors Glynis Casson and Daniel Costello are taking their new show 'Yeats' Women' to The Orangery in Killruddery House this Sunday the 6th of August at 3pm.

“Yeats’ Women” tells the story of W.B. Yeats’ life and all the women who supported and inspired him, his two sisters Lily and Lolly, his muse Maud Gonne, Lady Gregory, his wife George Yeats , Olivia Shakespeare and many others who also inspired his wonderful poetry. Besides the narration of the story of Yeats’ life, Glynis Casson and Daniel Costello recite Yeats’ poetry, some of which has been put to music by Harpist Claire Roche which she sings to her beautiful harp accompaniment.
“Yeats’ Women” is a sympathetic and eloquent account of Ireland’s great Poet told in poetry, music and song.

Daniel and Eavan in new Tom Berenger and Beau Bridges film!

Daniel Costello and Eavan Gaffney were hard at work this past week shooting scenes with Tom Berenger and Beau Bridges for upcoming feature film, 'Supervized'.

The film, directed by Steven Bannon and also starring Fionnuala Flanagan and Louis Gossett Jr. is a comedy with a big heart, which follows the escapades of a group of ageing super-heroes in their retirement home in Ireland. Can't wait to see it in 2018!
