From the creators of the acclaimed How To Build Your First Robot comes Walkinstown. A surreal soiree that traverses the streets of Dublin’s past, present and future. Two humans on a comedically cosmic trajectory, led by love, lust and all that’s elementary.
A staged anomaly, a melodramatic oddity. This is not a play. This, is a theatrical odyssey.
