Yokes Night Ed2016

It’s not all fun and drugs for Harry on Yokes Night, 11th March 2015. Off to party on a budget, and not averse to finding the love of his life, he meets wild but traumatised Saoirse. This high energy look at Dublin’s night life is just the thing to startle you out of those ‘end of festival blues’. Actors Scott Lyons and Zoe Forrester are rampantly funny as they bounce on foam cubes and virtually off the walls of the Pleasance Bunker. And though there is tons of foolishness and black comedy, as the secrets begin to come out, in particular Forrester’s shocking monologue about abortion, you’ll see there’s another dimension to this riot against the baby-boomer generation.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 29 Aug.
