Absent The Wrong
Dylan Coburn Gray 

Presented by Once Off Productions

A woman seeking her child is lied to. An artist pitches a memorial that's never built. A landlord raises rents. A parrot disappears. Thousands of children disappear. There's family reunions, collective actions, inexplicable Mormons. 

This play is about adoptees, about being the only person in the family photo who isn't white and not daring to ask why, about families destroyed in the name of The Family, about wondering, searching, loving, losing, fighting, losing again, sometimes winning when all seems lost. 

Preview 10 & 12 September, 19:00, €12
Performances 13 - 17 September & 19 - 24 September, 19:00, €16/€14
Other performances 17 September, 13:00, €16/€14
Venue Abbey Theatre - Peacock Stage

Please note
This show discusses various forms of institutional violence frankly, but does not depict them graphically. It does so with regard to both Mother and Baby Homes and industrial schools. More specifically, audiences should expect the following: reference to mental health/depression, the theme of child bereavement, mention of physical and sexual violence.

The running time for this show is 200 mins in length and the performance will have two intervals.

Remnant Ecologies
Jony Easterby

Presented by Dublin Fringe Festival in partnership with National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin and axis: Ballymun

For the nature lovers and night owls, Dublin Fringe Festival teams up with the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin and axis: Ballymun for the opening up of Ireland's premier city garden at night, for the first time, in the spectacular Remnant Ecologies by Jony Easterby.

A large-scale outdoor light and sound installation across a 1.3km route that will give thousands of visitors exclusive access to the Botanic Gardens after dark. In this rare feast for the senses, the artist tries to make sense of a world, in which a passion for nature is mixed with the anxiety for its future. Expect empty birdcages, playful songs, the insides of cuckoo clocks and fragments from botanical dictionaries and illustrations are all intertwined through a series of works, their story winding through the sublime location.

Performances 21 - 25 September, 20:00 – 22:30, various times, €12
Venue National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin

Presented by THISISPOPBABY and Dublin Fringe Festival in association with Irish Arts Center, New York

An adrenaline shot for the city: this extraordinary assembly is an outpouring, a reckoning, a release and a party.  

A howling, raucous, soul-stirring celebration of community, regeneration, and the magic of collective catharsis, this glittering Pop-wake ushers you to a dimension between worlds where club culture meets Irish tradition in an exquisite frenzy of ritual, rave, grief and joy.

This new show, from makers of international smash-hit RIOT, embraces the wild abandon of the all-nighter and the beauty of transformation in a rabble-rousing journey of gut-punching theatre, soaring spoken word, stomping beats and outrageous circus that will leave us ready to dance, as one, into the dawn.

Previews 8 & 9 September, 19:30, €15/€25/€35
Performances 10, 13 - 15 September, 19:30, €15/€30/€45
Other performances 16 & 17 September 19:00, 21:30, €15/€30/€45
