The Cultch/PuSh Festival: Dublin Old School

Emmet Kirwan’s smash-hit play updates old-fashioned Irish eloquence for the days of DJ sets and drug binges, track suits and trash-talk. It tells the story of two estranged brothers from Dublin: Jason is a would be DJ, Daniel a washed-up junkie. After years apart, they meet during a long, wild weekend. Their tentative bonding is set against the backdrop of memories: of the music they raved to, the drugs they thrilled to and the city of their birth and, perhaps, rebirth. A presentation of Project Arts Centre (Ireland)
“Rap, rave music and blistering energy in a chemically enhanced Irish two-hander”
                                                                                                                                       — The List
“Unmissable. Exceptional acting squared with exceptional writing” 
— Sunday Times
“Part urban portrait, part family snapshot and part gratuitous head rush, it’s …exhilarating”                                                                                                           — The Irish Times
