A BRIEF HISTORY (BEFORE 2000)
Pat Abernethy and Dave Marsden are two actors who have written, produced and performed their own shows for many years, originally based in Ireland, and since the eighties, in London. The main feature of the majority of their work then was that it was comedy based but mostly performed in theatres.
Just prior to the millennium the renowned playwright and 'Emmerdale' creator, Kevin Laffan wrote two new plays for Pat and Dave, 'Odd Ball Out' and 'The Husband's Tale' which were highly acclaimed critically.
A BRIEF HISTORY (SINCE 2000)
From this time the duo, who have always performed under the name ISOSCELES, have moved back closer to their straight acting roots, and have worked closely with writer Patrick Prior and actor/director Jim Dunk (collectively known as Useful Idiots); the results have been the following productions:
2000 - Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper
2002 - On Our Way to Lisbon
2002 - The Haunters
2004 - Dracula the Panto
2006 - Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
2008 - The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band Changed My Life
2010 - The Man Who Left The Titanic
2013 - The Vampire and Mrs Riley
2015 - Murder, Just What The Doctor Ordered
In 2005 Pat and Dave also premiered their own music
show 'Songs That Matter'.
In 2009 ISOSCELES produced and performed 'Behind You! by Dave Marsden.
In 2011 Pat and Dave premiered another music show 'Probably The Best Comedy Songs In The World Ever, Maybe'.
2014 - Isosceles premiered a new show called 'BECKETT'S LAST ACT' adapted from the book of the same name by Mora Grey.
2017 - In November Isosceles opened a new show written by Patrick Prior called 'LITTLE VICKY AND THE SEVEN ASSASSINS'
The one thing that has never changed over the years
is that every show is a brand new original production, and so far, past and
present, there have been nearly thirty.
2018 - Pat and Dave will premier their latest show "SONGS FROM IRELAND".
