The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down (Gallery Books, 2018) by Padraic McIntyre
at The Olympia Theatre
Monday 11th February (preview) to Saturday 16th February 2019
The hit music & comedy show The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down is returning to The Olympia Theatre from February 11th to 16th (including a matinee performance on the 16th). This will be the show’s 8th run at The Olympia, where it has been enjoyed by over 60,000 people to date!
Imagine being stranded with the legendary Joe Dolan in a rural pub in Cavan on the night his car breaks down. That’s just the sort of fantasy scenario that’s imagined in The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down a play written and directed by Padraic McIntyre.
The play is set on a stormy St. Stephen’s night as people gather to celebrate the 60th birthday party of the The Horse Munley. As the storm worsens and people head home, a knock to the door brings the night’s entertainment to a new level. As the play unfolds so too do personal secrets, the music and the craic.
This hilarious show has been a sell out success in theatres all over the country including The Olympia, The Ramor Theatre Virginia, Roscommon, Longford, Mullingar, Monaghan and Galway. Mixing comedy, drama and music it is a treat for all theatre and Joe Dolan fans alike!
A powerful performance – The Irish Times
