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”
“Volcanic vortex of verbal dexterity”
“Kirwan’s late night trip through the city makes for incredible theatre”
“the makings of a modern classic – never to be missed”
THE ARTS REVIEW
“It’s as a great onrush of sometimes laugh-out-loud verbal virtuosity that Emmet Kirwan’s very talented two-hander bowls you over”
“tour de force”
“a kind of drug-ravaged Ulysses or an Irish Trainspotting”
WHAT’S ON STAGE
“Part urban portrait, part family snapshot and part gratuitous headrush, it’s […] exhilarating”
THE IRISH TIMES
“This Irish import is one of the slickest plays on the Fringe”
