From the creator of Dublin Oldschool comes a poetic and musical journey about family, love and the sound of our voices
Accents is a transformative new show about the arrival of new life, the families we try to create, the families we may never have, and the post-crash boom generation living a life delayed. Written by Emmet Kirwan, composed by Eoin French and directed by Claire O’Reilly, this world premiere presents a powerful, poetic journey through a gentrified city.
Please note that this show contains the use of strobe lighting.
‘I am thrilled to finally bring Accents to the stage with Eoin and Claire. The work has been simmering away in the background for the last few years. Life has thrown some pretty big changes at me, and the world, over the last few years and I hope these words will uplift, bring joy, and offer hope for what’s next’Emmet Kirwan
