Toxic at the Project Arts Centre

Toxic at Projects Arts CentreA play named after a Britney Spears song? Really? Pop pickers, this is a must see. Running from tonight June 28 – July 2 in Project Arts Centre in Dublin, this play is suitable from ages 16 and over as it contains some strong language and themes.

So what’s it about?

In 2004 Britney sang Toxic and we blagged our way into clubs with fake ID’s and sculled pints and Bacardi Breezers. The future was rosy, so we danced our arses off and sucked the faces off each other and worried about the kind of things that kids worry about. And then, while our backs were turned, it all went wrong.

The Gaiety School of Acting – The National Theatre School of Ireland’s graduating class debut in this specially commissioned original play written by Michelle Read and directed by Liam Halligan. Celebrating 25 years of training the stars that currently grace our stages and screens and with an alumni that include Colin O’Donoghue, Eva Birthistle, Colin Farrell, Aidan Turner, Olivia Wilde and PJ Gallagher, we are delighted to present the stars of the future from our 2011 graduating class. This is the culmination of their training on our Two Year Full Time Professional Actor Training course.

This is a fast-paced, wild-eyed play, with a karaoke-style pop vibe, set in contemporary post-boom Dublin. You’ll meet, amongst others, a drug dealer, an IT professional, a morgue worker, a civil servant and a terrorist cell, in this new play, which examines betrayal, and the interaction between public ethics and personal morality.
