A play like no other
It’s always special when you get to see or do something unique and authentic in a new city and stopping by the Gaiety theatre to catch a play by a famous local author may just be the ticket! Dublin has always been a city of literature (we are one of only four UNESCO cities of literature worldwide) with some of the most famous English literary works ever written penned by Irish hands. Writers like Oliver Goldsmith, Oscar Wilde and more recently John B Keane were the comic satirists of their day and Dublin continues to nurture authors and playwrights that cut at the fabric of contemporary society. Paul Howard, known for his take on the upper middle class of Dublin, made famous by his Ross O’Carroll-Kelly series, takes an insightful look, and pokes fun at modern Irish life. His award winning Play, ‘Breaking Dad’ has returned to Dublin for the month of February. Even if you’re unfamiliar with his work or the quirks of Dublin life, Breaking Dad will have you in peels of laughter! Learn more with John McKeon’s review of the play.
