The story of how Ireland fell into the jaws of the Troika is set to take centre stage.
'Bailed Out!', a new drama-documentary by playwright and journalist Colin Murphy, will premiere as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival. The production will open on September 26 at the Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire.
Based on official accounts and off-the-record interviews, an ensemble of actors takes up these documents for a stripped-back production, embodying a myriad of national and international figures as they wrestle with the crisis.
Directed by Conall Morrison, 'Bailed Out!' follows the successful 'Guaranteed!'. The cast includes Denis Conway, Peter Daly, Peter Hanly, Mark Lambert and Ali White.
The Dublin Theatre Festival runs from September 24 to October 11, with 28 productions on 22 stages in the capital.
