Dublin nightclub Copper Face Jacks has inspired the plot for a new stage show - "Coppers: The Musical".

Paul Howard - writer of the Ross O'Carroll Kelly book series - is writing the new show, a report in The Sun says.

Copper Face Jacks is a well-known city hotspot long-associated with nurses, country folk and gardai.

The producers of Anglo: The Musical are said to be behind the show.

Darren Smith has written a draft for the musical and has described the show as a version of West Side Story, but with a "culchie versus Dubs" theme.
