The Last Show is a feature film about a theatre director who brings his cast to the seclusion of an old country cottage in the Irish countryside to prepare for the following week’s opening. It examines the nature of jealousy, envy, resentment, the clash of egos and how that fades to insignificance when faced with the actors own mortality.
Cast members from The Last Show include Brian Fortune (Game Of Thrones) as the frustrated yet passionate director desperate for his actors to remain focused and professional. Rita Marie Lawlor (Apollo Music Club) plays the part of Stella who’s in a conflicted relationship with the irritatingly little brother-esque, character of Jack – played by Jeff Doyle (Jack And Ralph Plan A Murder), a fitness fanatic who shares a close bond with peace-keeping. dope-smoking Bobby, played by Johnny Elliott (Charlie Casanova). Rory Mullen (Hunger) plays the notoriously womanising Richie and Andrea Coyne (Psychic Sue) features as Richie’s long-suffering girlfriend, Cynthia while Mirjana Rendulic (Watershed) is Richie’s long-suffering mistress, Vicky.
The film was written and directed by Rita Marie Lawlor for RML Films and shot on RED on a tiny budget in one location at the Calabona cottage in Arklow County Wicklow, over eight and a half days in May 2014. The 80-minute black and white film is now being submitted to film festivals around the globe in the hope of being considered for selection.
