Show Time: 7pm
By A Betrayal of Penguins
DRUID PENGUIN – THE LAST EVER PENGUINS SHOW
Six seperate tuxedos.
Five years of touring.
One last hurrah before retirement.
As of midnight on the 5th of January, 2013, the Irish comedy sketch group A Betrayal of Penguins will be no more. They will cease to exist and move into the past tense as it were. But after five years and four seperate sold-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, on the 4th and 5th of January, Project Arts Centre will host the last two nights pf performance A Betrayal of Penguins will ever do.
No ordinary send off, the Penguins are going out with a bang – performing three of their greatest shows over the course of one night: Don’t Run With Scissors (2010; “Unmissable”, The List); Endangered For A Reason (2011; “Jaw-achingly funny”, Three Weeks); and Harmed and Dangerous (2012; “Hilarious”, The Irish Times).
After countless shows in Ireland and the UK, A Betrayal of Penguins (comprising of Matthew Smyth, Aaron Heffernan, Ross Dungan and Eoghan Quinn) are calling time on their distinguished career, with one last chance to catch some of the most madcap and energetic brand of sketch comedy that Ireland has to offer.

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…Read More

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
