Time: 7:30 pm
Venue: Belgrave Square Park, Rathmines
Dublin Youth Theatre’s annual Big Show returns as a Play in the Park, live outdoor performances in Belgrave Square Park, Rathmines with the support of Fair in the Square and Rathmines Initiative’s Social & Community Group.
Welcome to Ballygweeha, the windiest town in Ireland! The people haven’t heard each other properly in years over the roar of the gales, no-one’s ever been able to get a fire lit, and everywhere you look, there’s stuff blown over.
When prodigal son Luc Torney returns after ten years to save the town from ruin with a windfarm scheme, he is hailed as a hero. But Jacinta Nangle is brewing up a storm. A cast of locals, property developers and mammies collide in this modern Irish satire. The Windstealers is a farcical outdoor extravaganza with live music, performed by an ensemble of DYT members, directed by Ursula McGinn, co-director of Bombinate Theatre.
The seated performances will be held outdoors in the leafy surrounds of Belgrave Square Park. It is a free, but ticketed event and capacity will be limited.
Tickets will be available to book from Friday 23 July.
