Emmet Kirwan's Dublin Oldschool opens at the Dorfman Theatre

Emmet Kirwan's Dublin Oldschool opens at the Dorfman Theatre on 24th January.

Join wannabe DJ Jason on a chemically enhanced trip through the streets of Dublin, stumbling from one misguided misadventure to another. Somewhere between the DJs, drug busts and hilltop raves, he stumbles across a familiar face from the past: his brother Daniel. They haven't spoken in years but, over a lost weekend, they reconnect and reminisce over tunes, trips and their city.

A razor sharp spoken word odyssey, Dublin Oldschool snaps and crackles, with high octane performances from Emmet Kirwan and Ian Lloyd Anderson.

Dublin Oldschool transfers to the National from successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Dublin Fringe Festival where it won the prestigious Stewart Parker Trust Award. It runs until the 31st January and you can buy your tickets here.

Emmett is currently developing Dublin Melody, a companion piece to Dublin Oldschool told through spoken word poetry and he is adapting Dublin Oldschool as a feature with funding from the Irish Film Board.
