48 By Gemma Kane

The lives of four friends are changed forever when they enter the Stardust Nightclub on Dublin’s Northside on 13th February 1981.


The new, lionhearted and savagely funny ’48’ by Dublin playwright Gemma Kane, captures the pulsating youth of 1980s Dublin on the brink of irreparable social change through sharp-tongued narrative and visceral movement, set to the backdrop of a haunting, 80s inspired soundscape by composer Dylan Tonge Jones.

This is a true story.
