Peter Coonan (Love/Hate) and Maud Ní Riordáin (Maud in Cahoots) star in this live staging of a concept pop album which explores a family dealing with life after the crisis.

From the collaborators who brought you The Well Rested Terrorist comes this humourously poignant work which blurs the lines between a gig and a piece of theatre.

Why should you come see this?
We’ve been looking forward to this since we saw a work-in-progress at last year’s THE THEATRE MACHINE TURNS YOU ON!

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?

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC.
