Imagine being stranded with the legendary Joe Dolan in a rural pub in Cavan on the night his car breaks down.  That’s just the sort of fantasy scenario that’s imagined in The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down, written and directed by Padraic McIntyre. The play is set on a stormy St. Stephen’s night as people gather to celebrate the 60th birthday party of the The Horse Munley.  As the storm worsens and people head home, a knock to the door brings the night’s entertainment to a new level.  As the play unfolds so too does personal secrets, the music and the craic!

This hilarious show has been a sell-out success in theatres all over the country including The 3Olympia, The Ramor Theatre Virginia, Roscommon, Longford, Mullingar, Monaghan and Galway.

Mixing comedy, drama and music it is a treat for all theatre and Joe Dolan fans alike!
