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!

“a painstaking work given startling execution”

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

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.
