Winner of ‘Best Performer’ and ‘Bewley’s Little Gem’ Awards at Dublin Fringe Festival 2018. Nominated for the Broadway World Ireland ‘Best New Play’, ‘Best Performer’ and ‘Best Director’ Awards. First performed at Bewley’s Café Theatre September 2018.                                    


To challenge the bureaucracy of Irish political life and to save the local school of music from being converted into apartments for racehorses, Brendan Galileo is determined to join the ranks of the European Parliament. Alas, in the City of Tribes he is a man without a spear, his previous electoral efforts little more than a novelty act. In a last-ditch attempt to dramatically improve his public profile, he must represent his country in the most vicious diplomatic catfight in the continent, the Eurovision Song Contest.

Written & Performed by Fionn Foley. Directed by Jeda de Brí. Producer & Lighting Designer: David Doyle. Stage Manager: Sinead Purcell. Costume Designer: Nicola Burke. Dramaturgy by Gavin Kostick
