July 22nd – July 27th

Written & Performed by: Irish Times Theatre award-winning actor Bryan Burroughs.
Developed & Directed by: Edinburgh Fringe First winner David Horan

Running Time: 65mins – no interval

A father’s final chance to connect with his son. A boy with a film-soaked imagination. This gripping, funny and poignant “tour-de-force” (New York Times Critics’ Pick) reminds us that life is not about how we die, but about how we live.


Bryan Burroughs trained as an actor at the Samuel Beckett Theatre, Trinity College, Dublin and currently teaches physical theatre at The Lir Academy in Dublin. He has performed in many productions both at home and abroad and is also an accomplished director and movement director. He received an Irish Times Theatre Award for his role in Johnny Patterson the Singing Irish Clown (Barabbas).

Show in a Bag is an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
