We are doing a brand new live radio comedy show at Tiger Dublin Fringe

06_Show poster

Thrilled, excited and a bit giddy to announce that our resident sketch troupe, The Brownbread Players, will be doing an original new comedy show at this year’s Tiger Dublin Fringe. The Definitive View with Sneachta Ní Mhurchú is written by Kalle Ryan, and features a dream team of actors: Eva Bartley, Gus McDonagh and Sean McDonagh (+ Kalle himself), as well as experienced theatre director John Morton, who will be on hand to direct proceedings.

Ireland. The near future. It’s a quiet weekday night. You sit down and tune in to Radio 1 to listen to your favourite arts and opinion show, The Definitive View with Sneachta Ní Mhurchú: a playback revue of the best and worst Irish radio of the past week, hosted by Ireland’s favourite self-important presenter.

A brand new live comedy radio play in the tradition of The Goons and Scrap Saturday.

Four actors perform all 71 characters, as well as every jingle, sound effect and commercial.

A show unlike any other you’ve seen. Or heard.

Tickets are selling extremely fast here, with both nights almost sold out already, so grab one while you can! Hope to see some of you there. It’s going to be a really special show.
