The Battle of Kildare Place, by Emma Gilleece and Michael J Ford, is a heady mix of architectural debate and sibling rivalry in the heart of the Georgian City.

Two estranged sisters meet at Kildare Place to discuss a memorial to their father who was a celebrated campaigner against the destruction of Georgian Dublin. An awkward reunion turns to furious disagreement over their father's work and cuts to the heart of their own fractured relationship; one wants desperately to hold onto things as they are while the other wants to rip up the past.
The sparks fly in this witty comedy as they battle over family history, Brutalist architecture and the legacy of their colourful but controversial dad.

This new sparkling comedy is the latest in our award-nominated WALKABOUT series of outdoor performances in historic Dublin locations.

MEETING POINT: Outside the front of the Shelbourne Hotel, Stephen's Green
TIMES: All shows play at 1pm and 3pm daily, Wednesday to Saturday.
