Dublin Oldschool; Emmet Kirwan’s smash hit show about brothers, Dublin and dance music is about to get reloaded to celebrate its 10 Year Anniversary.
Following 6 sell-out runs at Project Arts Centre, a critically acclaimed run at Edinburgh Fringe, and an historic sell-out run at London’s National Theatre; Dublin Oldschool lands on its largest stage to date - the iconic 3Olympia Theatre, on the 4th & 5th September 2024 for a limited run of anniversary shows starring Ian Lloyd Anderson and Emmet Kirwan.

Tickets priced from €28.40 including booking fee & €1.50 restoration levy on sale now with Ticketmaster Ireland

Join Jason, a wannabe DJ on a chemical trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one misguided misadventure to another. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, drug busts and hilltop raves, he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel. Daniel is an educated, homeless addict living on the streets of Dublin. The brothers haven't seen or spoken to each other in three years, but over a lost weekend, they reconnect and reminisce over tunes, trips, history, and the city.

Winner of The Stewart Parker Award for writing, Winner of Best Performers at Dublin Fringe Festival and made into a box office hit feature film – Dublin Oldschool returns for one more tune in 2024, directed by Phillip McMahon (THISISPOPBABY) and co-produced by Verdant Productions.

Praise for Dublin Oldschool:

"Exceptional acting squared with exceptional writing … unmissable." ★★★★★ - The Sunday Times

"Kirwan's late night trip through the city makes for incredible theatre" ★★★★★ - The Evening Herald

"There's the swagger and linguistic self-intoxication of rap and a kind of vernacular concrete poetry that you can almost see materialising in mid-air as it is uttered." ★★★★ The UK Independent

"…the pace is electrifying, the atmosphere crackling with energy, and the stage alive with an exhilarating love for language itself…. Highly recommended" ★★★★ Sunday Business Post

 "Beautifully directed by Phillip McMahon and performed with raw and involving intensity. It’s a blast" ★★★★ What's On Stage

"A tour de force of performance" ★★★★ The Stage UK
