Fair Dinkum Theatre!
Seamus and Boxer seem to have it made, on their paid-for holiday in the tropics … until their island starts to feel a bit deserted and rather dangerous. Meanwhile over in the Chairman’s office of an investment bank, Fitzsimons is feeling the heat and seeking to pass the buck, in this fast-moving comedy of the blame game and the financial crisis.

About the company…
Fair Dinkum Theatre! is a young company made up of experienced theatrically trained professionals with international experience. At Fair Dinkum we believe that theatre should have an honesty about it – good fun, good value and thought provoking! It’s a philosophy that Australian audiences came to love and one we are excited to introduce to Ireland!
What motivates us as a young company are new works that amuse, startle and amaze. We want you to leave the theatre feeling that you have been entertained and challenged. We hope that our energy and commitment to presenting the very best theatre will bring you back!
We believe in seeking stories and themes which resonate with local audiences – be they Australian or Irish – and yet have a universal message. In this way we hope eventually to connect with audiences around the world.
