09 Buck Jones L


Go back in time to Dublin 1798, where body snatchers rove the night and historical fact and fiction collide, in a hugely entertaining journey through the grand houses, sordid streets, taverns and graveyards of the city.

The success of Buck Jones and the Body Snatchers took everybody by surprise when it opened in Limerick last year. Nominated for Best Production in the 2008 Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards, this intimate theatrical romp is a promenade piece with the audience following the action through the drawing rooms, the tavern and ultimately, the crypt of the Georgian house Ionad an Phiarsaigh.   

A theatrical tour-de-force of love, passion and revenge are all served up in a rich comic stew.

It will blow you away as you experience up close this hilarious costume drama, which captured the imagination of audiences and critics alike during its sell-out success last year.
