JERICHO by MALAPROP
Originally commissioned by Bewleys Café Theatre to be a response to the state of the world (as it stood in December of 2016), JERICHO is about professional wrestling.
There’s a good reason, trust us.
This is a show about the world we live in, and have always lived in, and always will live in. It's about bad things happening that a lot of people think are good things (and vice versa). It's also about journalism and treating entertainment like it’s politics (and vice versa).
★★★★JERICHO has a remarkably true understanding of itself; even when its subject is confusion, it never seems confused. – Irish Times
One of Dublin’s most progressive and forth-looking theatre companies. – YanaWritesAboutTheatre
It is a show worth seeing; a microcosm of the lives of an entire generation. – NoMoreWorkHorse
JERICHO is a chaotic piece of theatre for a chaotic world. – The Reviews Hub
The topic and the themes are very important for us to look at these days. We need to know what is happening in this social media culture because it’s electing presidents and destroying the planet. – DRAFF Magazine
The audience at Bewley’s Theatre in Dublin seemed to love it, howling with laughter from the first. – Sunday Independent
