Date fixed for case against Theatre Festival

Far Cry productions case against the Dublin Theatre Festival has been set down for hearing in Dublin Circuit court for 19th December next.

Our client is Far Cry Productions, whose best known member is acclaimed author, actor, artist and playwright Gerard Mannix Flynn. Far Cry is suing the Dublin Theatre Festival for breach of contract. Flynn and his company, Far Cry Productions, claim that the Dublin Theatre Festival reneged on an agreement made between the two parties in June 2006, partly in writing.

The agreement was that on condition that Flynn and Far Cry Productions produced, funded and staged a production called Letting Go of That Which You So Ardently Desire in the 2006 Festival, they would be given the opportunity to present another production the following year. According to Flynn’s claim, the 2007 production was to receive financial and practical assistance from the Festival, and Flynn was promised financial assistance.

Far Cry Productions kept their part of the bargain in staging the 2006 production, claims Flynn. Further expenditure went on the early stages of preparation for the 2007 feature, entitled Cunning, Baffling, Powerful, which he believed would be staged this year at the prestigious 50th anniversary Dublin Theatre Festival.

Despite numerous requests from Flynn and his company, the production was not included on the 2007 schedule.

Far Cry Productions case will be heard in Dublin Circuit Court on 19th December next.
