Walkabout Theatre: Bloody Phoenix

This event has ended

Phoenix Park, Wednesday 4th August - Saturday 14th August

Following a fantastic response, sold-out shows and many requests for more performances, we are delighted to announce that the inaugural Walkabout show, BLOODY PHOENIX will return for two weeks only in the beautiful surroundings of the Phoenix Park.

‘Walkabout is brilliantly simple in its conception. It offers audiences a series of new plays that can be observed within the natural frame of an outdoor setting… the natural environment of the Phoenix Park enriches our experience as audience members, and even the unexpected – a wandering deer, say – adds to the occasion’ Sunday Business Post

BLOODY PHOENIX
This exciting new promenade drama concerns the Phoenix Park murders of 1882 – one of the most shocking and controversial events in Irish history.
A proposed feature film about the famous assassinations has got the green light and the director and the producer are in the park to discuss locations, casting and much else. Focusing on the brutal ambush, they plan how best to show the bloody events in which two high ranking British officials were stabbed to death in broad daylight.

The director is a young would-be auteur, high on his vision of an art house masterpiece.
The beleaguered producer is more concerned about getting the tone right for a modern audience and keeping everything within the tight budget. As they stroll around the actual crime scene, with the audience in tow, they tell the story of the killings while revealing some of the logistical challenges of modern cinema.

Limited capacity of 20 per show.

Note: No shows Wed, August 11th. Extra performances instead on Tuesday, August 10th

An Evening With Fran Lebowitz

National Concert Hall

In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators. An American original and purveyor of urban cool, the cultural satirist and author is pointed, forthright, unapologetically opinionated, and known for her hilariously dry social commentary on American life. Lebowitz’s recent Netflix documentary series directed by good friend Martin Scorsese, Pretend It’s A City, was an unmitigated hit with its offering of a tantalizing snapshot of New York in full bloom, along with Lebowitz’s lively and unap
