Ellen thought she’d end her life where it began – in a rundown flat in Dublin’s north inner city. Now her building is sold, and she’s being moved into a box room in her snooty sister’s house in the suburbs. When an unexpected visitor lands in her front room, Ellen is forced to delve into the past in order to lay some ghosts to rest.

From the writers of Alice in Funderland, Town is Dead is a living room musical, an ode to Dublin and an exploration of how Ireland treats its people. It looks at the future of the city through the eyes of one older citizen.

Town is Dead has been nominated for 5 Irish Theatre Awards 2017, including Best New Play.
