Project Arts Centre presents Emmet Kirwan's
Dates: 03 Feb - 18 Feb
Show Time: 7.30pm & 9.30pm
Tickets: €18 - €20
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
“Kirwan’s late night trip through the city makes for incredible theatre”
The Evening Herald
“This Irish import is one of the slickest plays on the Fringe”
British Theatre Guide
“tour de force”
“Part urban portrait, part family snapshot and part gratuitous headrush, it’s […] exhilarating”
The Irish Times

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
