Ireland. The near future. You sit down with a cup of tay, and tune in to RTÉ Radio 1 to catch The Definitive View with Sneachta Ní Mhurchú: your favourite arty interview and playback show, featuring the quirkiest, murkiest Irish radio from the past week, hosted by Ireland’s most popular self-important presenter. A brand new comedy radio play with a live musical soundtrack, in the tradition of The Goons and Scrap Saturday.
Four actors perform all 71 characters, as well as every sound effect and commercial, with a world class duo of cello and piano performing a live musical soundtrack onstage.
The Brownbread Mixtape return after a sell-out smash hit run at Dublin Fringe Festival 2016 and nominations for Best Ensemble and Bewley’s Little Gem Awards.

About the Company
The Brownbread Mixtape started life as a raucous, fun, monthly themed event in The Stag’s Head with MC Kalle Ryan at the helm, and for 7 years they showcased the best contemporary Irish musicians and spoken word artists, earning the show a cult following and regular festival slots. Every month the resident sketch troupe, The Brownbread Players, would also perform hilarious original radio-style comedy in the spirit of The Goons and Scrap Saturday. As the show’s popularity grew (especially the growing love for the original sketch comedy) the time came to leap forward into the world of producing and touring original long form work, which led to the award nominated Fringe show The Definitive View with Sneachta Ní Mhurchu. In addition to its newfound theatrical touring status, The Brownbread Mixtape is also vying for the title of “greatest thing since sliced brown bread”. The quest continues.

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020 Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…Read More
