It’s back – again!
Following sell-out runs at Tiger Dublin Fringe and here at Project last year, plus a trip to Cork Midsummer earlier this year, the phenomenon that is Dublin Oldschool makes its glorious return to the Big Blue Building.
Join Jason, a wannabe DJ on a chemically enhanced trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one misguided misadventure to another. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, drug busts and hilltop raves, he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel.
Daniel is an educated, homeless addict, living on the streets of Dublin. The brothers haven’t seen or spoken to each other in three years but over a lost weekend they reconnect and reminisce over tunes, trips, their history and their city. Two brothers living on the edge, perhaps they have more in common than they think, but how long can this buzz last?
Dark comedy, family drama and spoken word odyssey – Dublin Oldschool  snaps, crackles, raps and rhymes, with high octane performances by Emmet Kirwan (Sarah & Steve) and Ian Lloyd Anderson (LOVE/HATE), directed by Phillip McMahon.

“Exceptional acting squared with exceptional writing […] unmissable.”
The Sunday Times
“Kirwan’s late night trip through the city makes for incredible theatre”
The Evening Herald
