48: A true story about the Stardust tragedy.
The lives of four friends are changed forever when they enter the Stardust Nightclub on Dublin's Northside on 13th February 1981.
The new, lionhearted and savagely funny play by Dublin playwright Gemma Kane, captures the pulsating youth of 1980s Dublin on the brink of irreparable social change through sharp-tongued narrative and visceral movement, set to the backdrop of a haunting, 80s inspired soundscape by composer Dylan Tonge Jones.
This is a true story.
“Honouring the families, victims and survivors, "48" is a brave, riotous and winning production. “It’ll be all right in the end, and until it’s right its not the end.” For the Stardust families the end is not yet in sight as their quest for accountability goes on” – The Arts Review
