"Airplane meets Hall’s Pictorial Weekly… Have you cracking a rib with laughter. Only in Ireland could you get a hijacking this ridiculous. Or this hilarious. Or this much fun." The Arts Review
"Ennis and Moy are a dream team... They physically inhabit each new character at breakneck speed making each one completely believable and unique... The audience last night was completely enchanted by the play. Not to be missed." No More Workhorse
"Lovingly made, giddily nostalgic comedy… An enviable team of collaborators seizes every opportunity for embellishment, from earthy comic turns to absurd religious visitations to slick stage effects." The Irish Times
Verdant Productions present
Dates: 25 Jul - 26 Jul
Show Time: 7.30pm
When Airplane meets Father Ted.
A new comedy based on the 1981 hijacking of an Aer Lingus plane by an ex-Trappist monk with a bottle of water as his weapon, the Pope as his nemesis and a burning desire to know The Third Secret of Fatima.
Step on the plane with us and experience this most Irish of hijackings. There’ll be music, nostalgia, heroism, praying, visions, romance (maybe) sex (maybe) a special appearance by Our Lady (definitely). There’ll even be a miracle. I swear.
Be an early bird, don’t pay €2 more on the door!
We’re committed to keeping our prices affordable. Our tickets are at their most expensive from 6pm on the day of the show, so you can get the best possible value by booking in advance!

Hi there, How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…Read More

Who “gets” access to cultural and creative spaces? What happens to a “programme” when no rules apply? How does a building and an organisation inform the art it facilitates/creates/presents and how does that art, in turn, impact it? What questions are artists asking and how can a cultural organisation help artists explore potential answers? Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited. Una Mullally This summer, Project Arts Centre was going to present Future Forecast, a series of events and artistic interventions forming…Read More
