'Dave at Large', by Brian McAvera

By Joe Devlin


 'Dave at Large'

Here is a unique opportunity for you to get involved in the making and producing of a brand new piece of Irish theatre, and to celebrate together the controversial comic genius Dave Allen, reinvented for the 21st century.

“When Brian McAvera told me about his new play, I was instantly excited at the potential of everyone having a good time in the theatre. It’s clever, it’s witty, it’s innovative. And it is the celebration of one of my favourite comedians! For all these reasons, it is really important for me to make this project happen” - Joe Devlin, Director

Funny, irreverent and touching, 'Dave at Large' reinvents Allen’s fabled comedy routines of politics, sex, religion and family for a modern audience.  

Bryan Murray, Tara Breathnach and Michael Bates take up the challenge of portraying Allen as this new play daringly explores the complex life of a master comic. We are so lucky to have such an experienced A-List company of actors in this show. They love working together and are also extremely funny. After the success of our last production "In search of Mister B', we could not NOT bring them together again!
