Until You Hear That Bell.
Until You Hear That Bell is a show about growing up in the world of Amateur Boxing. The show is set to timed boxing rounds. Three minutes, break. Three minutes, break.
It was developed with and ran for three weeks at the Battersea Arts Centre. Yael Shavit is the Director and Helen Heaslip is the Movement Director.
The show will also tour with CTN this Spring- I'm really excited about this as it won't only be to theatres across the country but boxing gyms also! Here's a link to the tour dates.
The Stage His writing is nimble and light-footed, full of little asides. It’s funny – he has great timing – but he’s also created a piece with weight and range.
Down Stage Centre- cleverly showing us a lad growing in confidence over a span of 10 years, until he felt he could have taken on any one of those bruisers who had bloodied his nose so many times over the years.
It was one of those things that I was so keen to tell people about. It’s really impressive and funny and moving and fascinating. I really liked it. I had so much time for it in more than a few ways.- Daniel Kitson
Spare, sharp, powerful, rhythmic language punctuated by telling silences; performance to match- Clare Brennan
Plays To See there are no twists and no devastating emotional climax – so the whole thing hinges on Mahoney, and his lyrics, performance and on-stage personality. Which is no bad thing, because he is fantastic.
London TheatreWorking within a bare space, and with just a few props, Sean nonetheless paints a series of pictures so vivid that the audience can see and hear it all
Everything Theatre This is an extraordinary piece of work; funny, tragic and poignant, it turns an hour of monologue into an evening of poetic revelation. Sean Mahoney is a young actor and writer of serious promise, and this show is a real tour de force.
Sabotage He keeps his audience guessing what will happen next, never revealing too much at once and there are plenty of belly laughs
This Little Thought For all its boxing technicalities, at its heart this is a touching, relatable coming of age tale that puts the good intentions and aspirations of a father and son’s relationship at its forefront. And it’s a bloody funny one, too.
