Push Up is kindly sponsored by Osbornes Solicitors, Naas.
Push Up, set entirely in a high-rise office block, takes a satirical look at power struggles and lust in an international corporation.
Who will get the coveted top job in Delhi? Why has Sabine already been turned down for it? Why is Robert's pitch for a new TV ad proving unsuccessful?
Who will pass muster to reach the executive suite? Will anyone find love - or even sex?
Three sets of rivals compete aggressively for what they desire. Their face to face battles are inter-cut with individual musings about their personal lives, breaking the fourth wall. These scenes are topped and tailed by monologues delivered by two security guards.
The Moat Club's presentation stars Sarah Gallagher, Padraic Broe, Ann Delaney, Conor O'Connell, John Lennon, Rachel Lally, Amanda Ryan and Brian McCarthy.
The play was written by a German playwright Arnold Schimmelpfennig, who is well known and lauded in his native country. The English language version was premiered at The Royal Court in London in 2002.
Director Eugene Delaney has been involved with the Moat since 1986 - directing, acting or working behind the scenes in several of its productions.
