 A DISH OF TEA WITH DR JOHNSON

Our next show gets up close and personal with the unique Dr Samuel Johnson. As well as the acid wit, the famous friends and the dictionary, this pacey two-hander also looks at his compassion, depression and, in later years, his heartbreak.

Massive tour, please note performances at Dr Johnson’s House are sold out. http://outofjoint.wpengine.com/prods/johnson.html

THE BIG FELLAH – COSTELLO’S BACK

Richard Bean’s wonderfully funny thriller about an IRA cell in New York was a critical hit last year. It will tour to Dublin, Cork, Liverpool and Newcastle in April and May. http://outofjoint.wpengine.com/prods/bigfellah.html
