A stage set with two actors in character for Once in a Lifetime.

Dublin Fringe Festival: Red Bear Company presents

Once in a Lifetime

ISL Interpreted Performance 11 September, 21:00

Contains references to child bereavement, sexual violence and abortion.


Teenage Ciara, thinking she has the house to herself, has brought home school friend Sara to help her with a stomach-churning task. Their scheme is interrupted by the arrival of Ciara’s parents Lorraine and Tanya and so an unwanted evening with the whole family unfolds.  

Privilege, prejudice, and barely concealed resentment are all served up for dinner, with a good dolloping of secrets and lies for dessert.

A woman dressed for autumn sits on a white plastic chair on the beach.

Dublin Fringe Festival: MALAPROP presents


ISL Interpreted Performance 16 September, 13:00

Contains references to mental health.


This is a new play with songs and a ship’s captain pulling the strings. 

Ruth in 1969 refuses to eat sandwiches with lettuce in them. Ali in the present day goes on a cruise to say goodbye to the ice. A parent 100 years in the future tells their child it gets better, even though we’re pretty sure they’re lying. 

A play about horny songbirds, parents, love, legacy, and wanting to change, but not knowing how. 

A photo where the viewpoint is looking down from above into a mosh pit of tightly packed people and focusing on one person’s face tilted upwards, eyes closed, mouth open in excitement and arms flailing.

Dublin Fringe Festival: Rachel Ní Bhraonáin presents


Audio Described Performance: 17 September, 18:15, 60mins, no interval

Contains loud noise, smoke machines, strobe lighting, and references to violence.


This is the thrill of fighting another human, without the fear. This is a dance, a gig, a theatrical shove into the heart of the pit. This is the meaning behind the chaos.

The Mad Bastards, The Pit Protectors, The Karate Choppers, The Bearded Beer Drinkers; everyone plays their part in this ritual of wild abandon.

With live music, real interviews, dance and text, five performers dive into the deeper meaning behind a misunderstood subculture. Is this violence or dancing? What are the rules? What do bacteria, birds, gas and moshers have in common? And why would anyone do this?

This is a show about a community connected through music and risk. This is a show with humour, heart and a whole lot of headbanging.

Chris Owen is lifting Dan Daw from behind, who is facing out towards the camera. Both are topless. Dan has tattoos down the whole of his right arm and torso. He has a ginger shaved head and a goatee. Chris has a hand splayed across Dan’s throat, his face hidden behind his back.

After having spent a lifetime being an inspiration to others, Dan is finally seizing the moment to inspire himself. 

Taking ownership of the beautiful mess that encompasses all that he is, Dan lets go of who he once was to make room for who he wants to be. 

Dan is joined in an intimate evening of play by performer and collaborator Christopher Owen (Joe Moran, Scottish Dance Theatre) where Dan takes back the power by being dominated on his own terms. 

Nominated for the 2021 National Dance Awards, the 2022 UK Theatre Achievement in Dance Award and directed by Mark Maughan (The Claim, Petrification), The Dan Daw Show is a peep into the shiny and sweaty push pull of living with shame while bursting with pride. This is a show about care, intimacy and resilience, about letting go and reclaiming yourself.
