THEATRE: Bat The Father Rabbit The Son

Wednesday 7th November, 2018 - 20:00

| €15/€12 BOOK TICKETS NOW »

It’s Dublin in the 1980s. Rabbit is a self-made haulage magnate. But something’s wrong. He cuts a deal with his underling Keogh to help him find his lost moorings. The quest is hampered by his dead father Bat, Citizen Army volunteer and pawn shop assistant, bubbling up. The struggle between father and son, past and present, imagination and reality, spans Dublin. Their voyage out of Howth and up the River Liffey builds to a climax described by The Guardian as “one of the strongest dramatic conclusions I’ve ever seen”.
An explosive exposition of the generation that led us to Boom and Bust.
Written and performed by Donal O’Kelly

“A prose poem of magical beauties and plunging vulgarities … friends, it is purely brilliant”

The Scotsman

“Superbly written and performed portrayal of a father/son relationship”
Irish Times

“A sustained burst of imagination and invention”
Sunday Tribune

“A wild slapstick tour de force”
