Have you ever stopped to think what Eurovision and Brexit have in common? Maybe not.
One Irish theatre maker is trying to find the funny in a country's exit from the EU, and has mashed it together with the Eurovision Song Contest for his new show.
'Brendan Galileo for Europe' will debut at this year's Dublin Fringe Festival, and has been created by the same guy who brought us Fierce Notions last year.
Fionn Foley describes it as a "one-man comedy that imagines an Irish exit from the EU through a satirical journey to the Eurovision Song Contest".
"To challenge the bureaucracy of Irish political life and to save the local school of music from being converted into apartments for racehorses, Brendan Galileo is determined to join the ranks of the European Parliament."
"Alas, in the City of Tribes he is a man without a spear, his previous electoral efforts little more than a novelty act. In a last-ditch attempt to dramatically improve his public profile, he must represent his country in the most vicious diplomatic catfight in the continent, the Eurovision Song Contest."
Brendan Galileo for Europe will run at Bewley’s Café Theatre from September 10-22 as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival.
