Emmet Kirwan’s Dublin Old School turned into a free-wheeling sensation, snowballing word-of-mouth popularity before eventually making it to the big screen. Kirwan is reunited with Phillip McMahon, who is fresh from his own tender triumph in Once Before I Go at the Gate, to bring us Straight to Video. “In a video shop in west Tallaght, in the tumultuous spring of 1995, the owner Barry is having problems with his staff, the customers, a local vigilante called The Coach, and an elusive video pirate simply called The Video Van Man, who’s ripping off his stock…” With a heavyweight cast of Stephen Brennan, Colin Campbell, Lloyd Cooney, Derbhle Crotty, Callan Cummins, Kate Gilmore and Emmet Kirwan; expect a valiant pitch for Roddy Doyle-esque levels of wit and popularity.
Project Arts Centre until December 11. Tickets €20-€35.
