Following on from sell out runs in Dublin Fringe Festival 2013, Just The Lads returns to The Mart in Rathmines with their debut production, The Last Post.
'A poignant piece, touching in parts, comedic in others and the inclusion of the audience in the whole production brings things further to life.'
'A gentle paean to the postal service, which mingles performance, documentary material and art installation…'
THE IRISH TIMES
An old fire station and new art gallery will be transformed into an imagined post office in this show about lost letters and postal workers, our unsung heroes. Exploring the changing face of post and communication in Ireland, The Last Post fuses fact, fanciful fiction and personal histories.
Just The Lads invites you through the back door of the post office, on a journey inspired by interviews, chats and chance encounters with postal workers and letter writers that we have picked up and dug out along the way.
