A quick summary? It was about shagging as many as possible as quickly as possible.”
 
 
Based on the Lars von Trier film of the same title, The Idiots follows a group of young people who share one interest: idiocy. Deciding to take up arms against existing social norms by pretending to be “idiots” they spend all their spare time together exploring the hidden and less appreciated values of idiocy. They practice!
 
But when members of the group meet Karen, she becomes embroiled in their game, and begins to participate in their diversions…
 
The original Dogme movie opened to critical acclaim in 1998, and now Pan Pan bring the English language premiere of the stage adaptation to lunatic life as part of the Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival.
 
"Pan Pan’s work is densely inter-textual, wickedly funny and wonderfully theatrical in the most post modern of ways." The Irish Times
 
 
 
What Do We Think?
Pan Pan’s excellent and experimental work has earned the company a growing reputation wherever they have played in Ireland and around the world.
