Sounds good and free admission. Only read reviews of that book by Pat Lonergan, but would like to come along to listen to discussions by the reviewers. Is it the Fringe stuff as well? Thanks.

Hi Denis,

the discussion will be of Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival productions only, though the Fringe festival might also come up in discussion. Hope you can come along!
