Well, Holy God

Knock, knock...
Who's there?
The Virgin Mary and you.

Oh come all ye faithless and prepare to be converted. After her recent sell-out show at Knock, The Blessed Virgin is making a one night only apparition at the Bernard Shaw on Holy Fool's Thursday, the 1st of April, and it promises to be divine.


Tunes from both testaments and virtuous visuals from Collidoscope (
Euchristic electropop from Come As Soon As You Hear's Joey Kavanagh & Eimear Fitzmaurice
Decades of The Rosary
Condom Communion
Religious treats
And, of course, an appearance by The Madonna herself

This Facebook invite has ended. Go now in peace, to love and serve The Lord.

Deeper Underground

The Basement is an underground performance and rehearsal space that has been our base of operations for the past year or so and the organisers of a series of 'Scriptscribe' workshops felt it was about time we included it in our plays.

Six writers have drawn inspiration from The Basement and come up with an original 20 minute script. Some of these will eventually be performed in The Basement but, for now, we're hoping you'll come along and check out the scripts-in-progress.

This evening and tomorrow evening there will be rehearsed readings of the 20 min scripts in The Basement (Clarendon House, Clarendon Street, Dublin 2).

Come. Listen. Discuss. Wine. Whine.

[Wednesday 24th @8pm]
Readings of work by:
Jennifer Carroll
Louise Melinn
