In September 2016, a theatrical grenade
landed in Dublin City.

Celebrating ten years of explosive events, from Poptent at Electric Picnic and Alice in Funderland – The Musical, to the legendary club night WERK, THISISPOPBABY presented their most entertaining and extraordinary show to date, uniting the hottest stars of Irish stage and screen in this glittering roulette of the brilliant, brazen and downright bizarre.

Featuring Emmet Kirwan (Dublin Oldschool), Queen of Ireland Panti, Up and Over It, The Lords of Strut, Ronan Brady, Alma Kelliher, Megan Riordan, Ruth Smith, Nicola Kavanagh and Adam Matthews, with frocks by James David Seaver, guest writing by Eileen Walsh and Michael Harding, Movement Direction by Suzanne Cleary & Peter Harding and set design by Niall Sweeney.

Created and Directed by Phillip McMahon and Jennifer Jennings.
Co-produced by Tiger Dublin Fringe.

A decade since they first introduced themselves… THISISPOPBABY have radicalised and revolutionised the face of Irish theatre and Irish attitudes. [Riot is] a love poem of hope from the heart to the future.

THISISPOPBABY’s sensational carnival – easily the most exhilarating spectacle on the Fringe.

Easily one of the best pieces of art this reviewer has seen performed live.

One of the most colourful nights out Dublin has ever seen.
