Sir Henry’s in the ‘90s….Were you there? Over ten years ago the spiritual home of Cork’s first generation of ravers closed forever. DEEP, from one of Cork’s finest theatre-makers, marks the occasion by exploring the social and political backdrop of the time.
It’s the summer of 1988 and Cork’s emigration generation are taking refuge from their troubles on the dancefloor, following the beat of a new musical movement bursting from Ireland’s first House club. Among them is Larry Lehane, a vinyl junkie who remains loyal to the music as the scene crumbles around him.
Turning the tables on two decades, from the rise of Ireland’s first House Club (SWEAT@ Sir Henry’s) to the Euro changeover, DEEP examines the evolution of Cork’s Underground as it rises and falls through the eyes of a Deep House Junkie who, at 35, has lived through the peaks and troughs of the last two decades, and is still intent on raving to the grave. Featuring footage of nights at the club and exclusive documentary interviews with the club’s main figures, DEEP is written and performed by extraordinary actor, writer and musician Raymond Scannell and directed by Tom Creed.
