Dublin Fringe Festival – Pilot Light Edition
It’s life, Jim, but not as we know it! While this won’t be the most memorable Fringe Festival on record, it still has lots of events worth checking out if you’re in need of a live theatre/ music fix. Here are some of our top picks!
Many events are already sold out, so if you’re interested, now is the time to act!
Paul Noonan Presents: The Electric Kazoo – Smock Alley Theatre – Bring your best teddy and your favourite adult along to a mini-concert of musical favourites curated for both big and little ears. SOLD OUT!
Before You Say Anything – MALAPROP Theatre – Dublin Castle – Chapel Royal – Imagine no one loves you and you have to leave home with nothing. (Shoes? Clothes? Passport? Mooncup?)
Birdboy – United Fall/Emma Martin – Draíocht Blanchardstown – Once there was a boy who wished he was a bird. He wished he could just fly away and be free of all his worries. This is a trip inside his head. In his whirring mind, thoughts, worries, fantasies all compete for space in a world where fitting in is hard to do.
Mustard – Eva O’Connor – Abbey Theatre – Peacock Stage – When the man of her dreams, a professional cyclist, leaves E, she plummets into a black hole of heartbreak at the speed of a doped-up team on the Tour de France.
Tilt – Croí Glan – When everything is off-kilter, what remains? Tender and triumphant, this show spans the fragility of the human body and the endurance of the human spirit.
Comedians in Bohemians – Joanne McNally, Gearóid Farrelly & Friends – Dalymount Park – Live comedy is giving the pandemic a red card. Dublin Fringe Festival has teamed up with Bohemians F.C. to get these stand-up champions back in the game. Take a seat in the stands of the iconic Dalymount Park, as Joanne McNally and Gearóid Farrelly crack you up with their comedy stylings.
A Rain Walk – Andy Field & Beckie Darlington – Take a rain walk – a walk in the rain accompanied by the recorded voices of children from across Ireland and the UK. With their guidance, the rainfall will become your own private theatre, a space in which to observe, imagine and play. – Co-commissioned by Dublin Fringe Festival and The Ark.
