Following smash-hit runs at Edinburgh Fringe, Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Project Arts Centre, Tiger Dublin Fringe and Cork Midsummer (and an upcoming run at the National Theatre in London), the phenomenon that is Emmet Kirwan’s Dublin Oldschool is back to Project again!
Join wannabe DJ Jason on a chemically enhanced trip through the streets of Dublin, stumbling from one misguided misadventure to another.
Somewhere between the DJs, drug busts and hilltop raves, he stumbles across a familiar face from the past: his brother Daniel.
Daniel is an educated, homeless addict. They haven’t spoken in years but, over a lost weekend, they reconnect and reminisce over tunes, trips and their city.
Dark comedy, family drama and spoken word odyssey – Emmet Kirwan’s Dublin Oldschool snaps, crackles, raps and rhymes, with high octane performances by Emmet Kirwan (Sarah & Steve) and Ian Lloyd Anderson (LOVE/HATE, Game of Thrones), directed by Phillip McMahon.
“Exceptional acting squared with exceptional writing […] unmissable”
The Sunday Times

The Evening Herald

British Theatre Guide
“tour de force”
“Part urban portrait, part family snapshot and part gratuitous headrush, it’s […] exhilarating”
