A tour de force of theatrical vision

The Corn Exchange’s much loved alternative version of the founding of a National Theatre.
Amidst the filth and fury of Dublin 1904, the theatrical event of the century is about to explode... Will the Irish National Theatre of Ireland seize its chance for glory? Fading stars, rebels, whores, and romantics irreverently expose the strange and lurid world of Dublin by Lamplight.
An instant hit when it first opened in 2004, this hugely entertaining and anarchic production is a night to change a nations destiny! Unless it all goes horribly wrong…
Awesome perfection… funny, clever, strange and thoughtful… superbly gifted cast.
