4 April – 9 April, The New Theatre Dublin

This is a newly devised piece from An Táin’s Company in Residence which explores issues of bodily autonomy, right to life and abortion. Based on a social issue which has never been more relevant or urgent, Vessel looks at Irish women’s lives as mere vessels instead of people. Brilliant but bleak, grab your tickets here.

Slice The Thief

4 April – 9 April, Smock Alley Theatre

This one’s for anyone who has ever had their bike nicked in Dublin. Meet Slice, your everyday bike thief who accidentally takes the wrong bike, and had twenty four hours to get it back, or he’s fucked. This is a quick, thought-provoking dark comedy from Lee Coffey, played out on stage by Wesley Doyle. 

Recovery: A Live Concept Album

19 April – 23 April, Project Arts Centre

The only way to get through tragedy is to sing and dance, right? Recovery is a concept album of 12 pop songs performed live, written from different perspectives, to present the family dealing with life after the crisis. Starring Peter Coonan from Love/Hate and Maud Ní Riordáin of Maud in Cahoots fame, this experimental work promises to be a great watch.
