In 2004 Britney sang Toxic and we blagged our way into clubs with fake IDs and sculled pints and Bacardi Breezers. The future was rosy, so we danced our arses off and sucked the faces off each other and worried about the kind of things that kids worry about. And then, while our backs were turned, it all went wrong.
A fast-paced and wild-eyed production set in contemporary post-boom Dublin. Performed by an ensemble of eighteen young actors Toxic is a new play with a karaoke-style pop vibe, which examines betrayal and the interaction between public ethics and personal morality.
Suitable ages 16+ contains some strong language and adult themes.
