Grounds for Concern – a play at Croke Park
A Croke Park dressing room will become the set for Dublin Fringe Festival’s Mental Health based play ‘Grounds for Concern’
Alan Bradley brings his highly anticipated one-man play Grounds for Concern to Dublin’s Fringe Festival this September 12th, 13th, 18th & 19th.
Set to be one of the highlights of this year’s festival, Grounds for Concern explores the mental health of young men in rural Ireland on the run up to the local GAA Championship Final. The 50 minute play is directed by Elif Knight and will be performed by actor/writer/ filmmaker Alan Bradley in the intimate and iconic setting of dressing room 1 in Croke Park.
Having successfully secured funding by the Ramor Theatre there was no doubt in Alan’s mind as to what would be the focus of the play. “By focusing on the fantastic community spirit in rural Ireland especially in sport I wanted to draw on the real-life stories of Gaelic football players and challenge the audience to take a closer look and consider how we can continue to engage and support young men in our communities.”
Tickets range between €11/14/16 and can be purchased online at fringfest.com
