A radical staging of how we got here, and how much we care.

HEROIN is the story never told about the new republic, of the person you never saw, of what was built and then demolished. It’s the big one, the bad one, the one you never thought you’d try. It’s everything that ever happened, the words that were never spoken and how the ones we voted for, kicked us in the teeth.

Winner of last year’s Spirit of the Fringe Award at Absolut Fringe, THEATREclub’s visionary production is a hard-hitting investigation charting the explosion of the drug in Ireland that centres on those that society left behind.

HEROIN was developed in collaboration with the staff and clients of Rialto Community Drug team. THEATREclub is part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.

Contains strong language and material that some may find disturbing.




TALKING THEATRE Grace Dyas and members of the company. Oct 5, Post-show 7.30pm (approx).

"THEATREclub's fiercely-realised production of HEROIN manages to convey the needle and Irish society's wilful ignorance of the damage done." Irish Theatre Magazine
