The 2019 Dublin Fringe Festival is well underway. One of the many highlights is We Are Lighting, which is running at the National Stadium's Ringside Bar until Saturday, September 21st.
The brand new show from acclaimed artists Joseph O’Farrell and Sam Halmarack combines theatre with the fist-pumping euphoria and power ballads of a stadium gig.
The darkly comedic play reflects on the importance of communal spaces where people can come together and express themselves.
The Ringside Bar is transformed into a music venue on the brink of closure. A teen band, a brass band, a community choir and ageing rockers from Dublin join JOF’s drums and Sam’s guitar to mark and protest its demise.
The show will lead audiences through a strange ceremony and heartfelt celebration of how music shapes the lives of the people who play it.
Tickets for We Are Lighting are on sale now here.
