Thursday 11th November

From the 2 October, in line with government guidelines, we are slowly easing restrictions and increasing our capacity in a safe and considered way. To do this we will still operate in pods of 1's, 2's, 3's & 4's, keeping at least two seats around your pod free. Seating for the moment will be unallocated, and we will notify you of your seats in advance.  In order to keep everyone safe we will require you to wear a mask at all times and we will also require proof of vaccine/recovery and ID. Please read our Covid guidelines before you arrive. Thank you for your cooperation with us at this time, and welcome back. 

Fight Night by Gavin Kostick | Rise Productions

Aonghus Óg McAnally returns with his multi-award winning solo show Fight Night for a 10th anniversary nationwide tour. A gripping journey charting the comeback of Dan Coyle Jr, a failed amateur boxer. Living in the shadows of his overbearing father and his brother’s Olympic success, the birth of his own son reignites his competitive fire, and he takes the first tentative steps on his road to redemption. This fast-paced and engaging solo performance combines intense physicality with a classic Dublin wit in a storytelling experience that will leave audiences both exhausted and exhilarated.

Winner of both the Bewley’s Little Gem Award and Best Actor for Aonghus Óg McAnally and nominated Best New Play at the Irish Times Theatre Awards.

"McAnally and Kostick deliver a knockout blow…Extraordinary… Stark, exhilarating, and cathartic" – The Irish Times

Part of Droichead Presents Drama: Five unique, critically acclaimed shows that will engage and entertain audiences, and also for the first time, Droichead Presents new Drama, a short readings/short works in progress. First set up in 2017, Theatre Club brings people together to see a play, and then allows audiences the opportunity to chat and discuss it afterwards. Like a book club, our audiences can share their views, thoughts and impressions informally post show with the cast and creatives. If this is your first or your 50th play, it doesn't matter,  come along, and be part of the drama at Droichead.
