Danny and Chantelle (still here) by Phillip McMahon marked the birth of THISISPOPBABY. It premiered at Dublin Fringe Festival 2006 where it won the Spirit of the Fringe Award.

“A story itching to be told.”
-Irish Theatre Magazine
“There is a liveliness and topicality here that has been lacking from much recent Irish theatre: McMahon and his collaborators are talents to watch.”
– The Guardian
“Fast paced and funny… An impressive piece of new writing, it’s refreshing.”
– Queerid.com

Danny and Chantelle are still here. They have left where they are to go where they are going. A place where you can get off your head and forget for a while. The night, like most nights, gets carried away with itself – the city is on fire and all bets are off.

Danny and Chantelle. Joined at the hip. Joined at the hoop. All joined up and tangled. Still here.

Winner of Spirit of Fringe at the Dublin Fringe Awards 2006, Danny & Chantelle went on to play a sell out run at Project Arts Centre, Dublin in March 2007 and Drogheda Arts Festival in May 2007.
