Kevin Cardiff, the man who ran the Department of Finance during the crisis, and Noel Dempsey, who famously denied that the Troika were on the way, were in the audience on Saturday to see Ireland's bankruptcy portrayed in 'Bailed Out!'
Colin Murphy's play was read to an audience at St Michan's Church in Dublin by actors playing the parts of Brian Cowen, Brian Lenihan, Jean-Claude Trichet, Dempsey, Dermot Ahern, Patrick Honohan, Mary Hanafin and Michael Noonan.
The audience laughed as an actor portrayed Dempsey defending Cowen following the former Taoiseach's congested RTÉ interview and denying knowledge of bail-out negotiations that were well under way.
