RIOT, the jaw-dropping theatrical sensation broke box office records and won Best Production at Dublin Fringe Festival 2016, and has gone on to win hearts and minds around the globe since.
RIOT is a disorderly cocktail of wild theatre, gut-punching spoken word, banging jigs, slapstick comedy and eye-popping circus that leaves audiences dazzled and dizzy. RIOT is both party and politic, a love letter of hope to the future, a clarion call on the state of the nation and a divine celebration and a blunt criticism of the world today.
With RIOT, THISISPOPBABY present their most entertaining show to date, uniting the hottest stars of Irish stage and screen in this glittering roulette of the brilliant, brazen and downright bizarre.
