Project Arts Centre presents
By Una McKevitt Productions
THE BIG DEAL
It’s 10.30pm on Tuesday night. I have just finished your recent email. You are now on the way to recovery. You are here now as you should have been and will be until the day you die. So whilst I struggle slowly onward and upward, you are already there.
Following the hugely successful premiere of The Big Deal at Kilkenny Arts Festival 2011 Una McKevitt (Victor and Gord, 565+) brings us an extraordinary real life story of two women who knew from a very young age that they were born into the wrong bodies. Scripted from original material provided by the contributors – including journals, poems, songs and interviews -The Big Deal charts the incredible personal gains and losses each has made to become the women they have always been.
“Moving and sometimes stunning.” The Irish Times
“The subjects in McKevitt’s important new work remind us there are many voices yet to be heard.” Irish Theatre Magazine
Una McKevitt is part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre

Our seating is unreserved so you will choose your seat on the night of the performance. We advise you to arrive at least 10 minutes before the start time as we are unable to seat patrons once a performance has begun.
Before the show, why not…?
…have a look around our gallery. During exhibitions our gallery is open Mon-Sat from 11AM until the performance begins….
…or catch up with your friends by having a drink in our bar. We offer a full bar service so if you just can’t wait to talk about the show join us afterwards for another.
Present your Project Art Centre ticket (evening performances only) at the Fleet Street Car Park and you will qualify for a special fixed price of just 5. Ask at box office for more information.
Want to grab a bite to eat before the show? Why not pop down to Milano Restaurant in Temple Bar and pick their pre-theatre menu – Pizza, Pasta or Salad plus and a glass of wine – for just 12.50. Available from 5pm -7pm, just show your tickets or email booking confirmation to avail of this offer.
And if you’re in a rush remember that Milano also delivers to Project Arts Centre. Choose from a range of delicious made to order pizzas delivered to you in our bar. No queues and no need to even leave the building. Ask a member of our bar staff for more information.
