With smash-hit runsboth at home and abroad, and hot on the heels of its triumphant cinematic release, Dublin Oldschool returns home to Project.

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.
