Spirit of the Fringe winners THEATREclub are back with a play that just might be about you and EVERYONE you know.

The Family is a play about your family.

Watch them fight, love and try to make dinner.

They will cry and stare as funds gets thinner.

BUT The Family love each other,

Cos after all, you can choose your friends….

Since the foundation of the State, the family was the bedrock of Irish society. At a time when the very fabric of the nation is being called into question, THEATREclub are making a play that explodes the idea of the contemporary Irish family, tearing up “An Teaghlaigh” to figure out where we go to from here.

A series of post show talks and discussions will accompany The Family. More information on the schedule of events and speakers here.

THEATREclub are part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.

There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
