It's brought by the writer of the award-winning musical Fierce Notions
A new one-man musical comedy about the Eurovision Song Contest will be showing in Bewley's Cafe Theatre this September.
Brendan Galileo for Europe imagines an Irish exit from the EU through a satirical journey to the Eurovision Song Contest. It will be showing from 10-22 September as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival.
The play runs for 60 minutes and follows Brendan Galileo, a man determined to join the ranks of the European Parliament in order to save the local music school from being converted into apartments.
Yet with previous electoral attempts not proving very fruitful, Brendan must find a way to drastically improve his public profile. He resorts to representing Ireland in the most vicious diplomatic catfight across the continent...the Eurovision Song Contest.
The show, like the contest it's based on, will feature plenty of singing, dancing and costume changes - all while exploring "the best and worst of post-Brexit Europe."
The play was written and is performed by Fionn Foley, whose original musical Fierce Notions won the Judge’s Choice Award at last year's Dublin Fringe Festival. Jeda de Brí directs.
Tickets priced at €13 are available at fringefest.com.
