C.L.G. (Cumann Lúthchleas Gael) (2014) - Live audience recording from the White Bear Theatre

Here is a recently-discovered audience footage recorded at the White Bear in April 2014 of C.L.G. (Cúmann Luchthleas Gael), with James McAnespy and Paul Christian Rogers.

C.L.G./Sitting Up For Michael 2014 - Interview with the cast and crew (video)

The cast and crew of C.L.G./Sitting Up for Michael discuss the upcoming double bill.

C.L.G. 
Two members of rival GAA clubs have been locked in a room until they can decide on a neutral venue for their upcoming match. It'll be the first time the two teams will have met for nine years, and some old scores have been long to heal. Will the dastardly Sam trick his way to getting the venue he wants, or can the put-upon Lory hold fast? They'd need to hurry up though - Fair City will be on soon.

Sitting Up for Michael
Michael's died. Who's going to do the readings? Will there be a lock-in at Packie's? Why did he only get twenty Mass Cards? It's a wil' handlin' altogether. The family and friends of Michael Montague gather for the sit up on the eve of his funeral. Set in contemporary county Tyrone, James McAnespy's comedy explores themes of family, separation and hidden pasts. So don't open the brandy until tomorrow. Brian, Michael's stubborn son, bickers relentlessly with his sister Frieda who has just come down from Belfast and starts ruling the roost as usual. Their neighbour Doris offers her support and a hot pot of tea. Young Rory, who reaches for a drink a little too readily is there to see Joe, whose coming down on the University bus, with a girl he just met - but she's got more to hide than she's letting on.

Meet the Cast and Crew: Paul Christian Rogers as Joe/Sam

In 2007 Paul completed his BA with Drama and Performance Studies and in 2012, he moved to London to complete the MA in Acting from East 15 Acting School. 

During his training, his credits involved roles such as Laertes in Hamlet, Slim in Cowboy Mouth and Lopakhin in The Cherry Orchard. This culminated in the showcase at the Criterion, with Paul’s scene being well received by critics saying he has 'the comic timing under control and squeezes every ounce of humour from the situation.' (The Stage) 

His first role out of drama school was in Carl Heap's adaptation of a 'Pilgrims Progress' at The Yard Theatre, playing many eccentric characters, with the production receiving Time Out's 'pick of the month'. Paul also appeared in Immersion Theatre's 'Dorothy in Oz' (Waterloo East) a dark retelling of the classic tale, with Paul featuring as the re-imagined Tinman, a pierced biker suffering from anger issues. Most recently Paul appeared in Lazarus Theatre's 'The Merchant of Venice' (Brockley Jack Theatre) as the merchant Antonio. 

When Paul isn't treading the boards or in front of a camera, he is a keen writer and deviser, with several screenplays written.
