Celebrating their tenth year, Dublin Based Theatre Collective THEATREclub are set to make their debut on the Abbey Stage with It was easy (in the end), playing from April 26 to May 4.
With a cast of thirteen humans and one frog, the play imagines what would happen if art could end capitalism… and then tries it. The summary reads: “A company of millennial artists has moved off the grid to live by a new philosophy. This explosive docudrama is their story.”
Speaking about It was Easy, Abbey Theatre directors Graham McLaren and Neil Murray said in a statement: “We are delighted to partner on this co-production with the brilliant and daring Irish theatre company THEATREclub. These are some of Ireland’s bravest artists and the company and project really excited us. We want our audience to be challenged, entertained and to bear witness as thirteen artists try to end capitalism from the stage of their national theatre”.
It was easy will run for 3 and a half hours, including an interval of 20 minutes. Audience members are free to come and go throughout the performance.
Booking is now open for all dates here. Tickets are from €13. The Abbey Theatre will also continue their popular First Free Previews initiative with It was easy’s taking place April 26.
