Last night marked the launch of ABSOLUT Fringe (our fourth consecutive Fringe launch, can that be right? #nostalgiamoment) and we are delighted to announce that our upcoming production Death of the Tradesmen will feature in this years fantastic programme.

Running at Project Arts Centre from 9th-15th of September at 7pm (previews 8th) you can get your tickets right here:

Want to know more?

His name is Willy. He is a 54 year old tradesman. He has a bad back and a short fuse. He likes a pint of black and he tends to lose more than he wins when it comes to gambling. His hands are sore. They are calloused and dry and he is sick of standing. Running low on brass coins, dreaming of dimes and dollar bill signs – is there someone to blame? Or is this just the name of the game? In a country full of vacant spaces, empty places and ghost estates, Death of the Tradesmen is a new play about an army of men and the live register.

“Playful and intelligent”- The Irish Times, 2011.

“You’d have to be dead inside not to be buoyed by its youthful exuberance, its vibrant performances and its lack of pretentious cynicism”- Emma Somers for the Irish Times on last year’s “DO YOU READ ME?”

This show is made with Rough Magic Production Support
