Frankie Flynn is a northsider with long settled views on everything from child rearing and the role of women, to the quality of the pint in Dublin’s pubs. This doesn’t equip him well to cope with the endless challenges thrown up by his family, friends, and the changing world around him. But in the face of it all, Frankie clings to his principles like a sock to a washing line in a strong wind. Only an eejit would miss this warm and funny evening of banter and sharp-tongued Dublin wit.
Quare Times transferred from London’s Courtyard Theatre and the London Irish Centre, where audiences left with tears running down their cheeks and legs. If you’re looking to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step, hop along to the New Theatre, Temple Bar, Dublin for the treat of a lifetime.
Quare Times – a real tonic for our times.
