In MiddleTown

This event has ended

St. Michaels Pier Dún Laoghaire, Thursday 22nd July - Saturday 24th July

n MiddleTown is a remarkable new solo show, commissioned and produced by the Gate Theatre and written and performed by Irish Times Theatre Award winner Mikel Murfi (The Man in the Woman's Shoes, I Hear You and Rejoice).

Performed outdoors on the back of a specially adapted truck, and to strictly limited audiences, it will tour towns and communities across the island of Ireland this summer. Making his way to Dún Laoghaire, Mikel's performance will take place on St Michaels Pier – the former Stena HSS Vehicle Compound on Harbour Road.

Murfi plays a furniture removals man, in the middle of his life, living in the middle of a small town.

One day, instead of helping a neighbour move, he drives to his own house, packs up his ‘life' onto the back of his truck, pulls the door behind him and never goes back.

The truck becomes his world, turning into places he thought he would never see or visit. He is a man moving on, neither here nor there, to both everywhere and nowhere.

In MiddleTown is a brilliantly imaginative, gentle reflection on ‘living in the middle', and the search for solitude, simplicity, and the things that make us truly happy. It's a magical, timely, and heartfelt piece for the times we live in.

This summer, find yourself In MiddleTown…

Commissioned and Produced by the Gate Theatre’

The Chronicles of Oggle

Smock Alley Theatre

Meet Pakie. An orphan, a storyteller, an adventurer, a survivor. He may not be the sharpest sandwich in the toolbox, but Pakie knows a thing or two about the history of his native town – from the vicious Vikings, to the less-than Christian Brothers. Pakie’s a laugh a minute… but Pakie’s got secrets. Secrets the God fearing people of Oggle may not be ready to hear. Starring Peter Gowen (Charlie, Love/Hate, The Butcher Boy), and directed by Donal Gallagher (Big Chapel X; What I (Don’t) Know About Autism, Abbey Theatre), this is a hilarious and heart-breaking story of small towns
