Brothers of the Brush

The Civic, Tuesday 11th June - Wednesday 12th June 2019

A new production of the classic, Brothers of the Brush, tells the story of three house painters, making a meagre living, overseen by an arrogant and shifty boss who is running a small business. Underneath the humour and playfulness of the relationships, a tough world is emerging, where workers are losing faith in old ways.

Set just at the dawn of the Celtic Tiger, it is now interesting to note that Heno and Lar have returned from London as work is now readily available in Dublin as the onset of apartment building kicks off in the city. The need to survive has becomes far greater than anything else in their lives and the manipulation of each is now the new order of the day where fragile loyalties are tested and taken to limit. Brothers of the Brush is both entertaining and thought provoking.

“As good a piece of work as I've seen in a while… a cracker… hugely talented actors” – Sunday Independent.

Two Pints

Abbey Theatre

After two sold-out tours of pubs across Ireland and the UK, Roddy Doyle’s ‘achingly, breathtakingly funny’ Two Pints is on a US Tour before taking to the stage this summer. The hilarious and provocative Two Pints started as a conversation on Facebook. Now it’s a play. Two men meet for a pint. They talk about their Da’s, death, Nigella, North Korea, the afterlife… Settle down and listen in as they chew the fat and set the world to rights. #TwoPints
