About the production

Devised by:  Members of Dublin Youth Theatre

Directed by: Ciaran Gray

Using only song titles and lyrics as a script, the DYT performers transform old favourites and new indie numbers into high fun and hard hitting theatre: Paul McCartney’s Silly Love Songs metamorphosises into an RTE Prayer at Night; the Manic Street Preacher’s 4 stone 7 lbs. paints a stark image of a girl growing visibly weaker as a result of her anorexia; and a host of songs from the likes of Tom Waits, Joe Jackson, Gloria Gaynor and Harry Connick Jr. are given the unequivocal DYT treatment.
