Robin Williams Tribute Night
Wednesday 17th September 2014
An event will take place at Filmbace next week to mark the recent passing of the great Robin Williams and raise awareness of mental health issues and highlight support available for suicide prevention. Robin Williams’s unique acting talent will be showcased in screenings of classic Mork and Mindy episodes and we will be playing a podcast with Marc Maron interviewing Robin Williams in 2010.
To reflect his huge contribution to the world of comedy we will have a rehearsed reading of the new feature film screenplay written by Karl Argue called Cosmic Baby. The film (which has been in development for the last few years) follows Mannix a comedian whose life ambition is to gig with Robin Williams, but who must first escape from a mental institution to do so.
The reading will be directed by Geraldine McAlinden and will be performed by Jason Gilroy, Sonya O’Donoghue, Elaine Reddy, Hilary Vesey, Clodagh Downing, Rory Mullen, Michael Bates and John O’Donoghue.
