Bang Bang By Dermot Bolder
It’s 1980 in the Home for the Blind where Dublin’s most famous gunslinger, the legendary street character Bang Bang, has finally hung up his holster. In his heart Bang Bang knows that his days are numbered and soon he must face the final shootout he has spent decades preparing for while roaming the streets of Dublin, fighting imaginary gun battles with bushwhackers, using his trusty, rusty key.
Dermot Bolger’s hilarious and poignant play takes us inside the mind of one of Dublin's best loved real-life eccentrics of yesteryear and through his eyes we get to see an alternative social history of Dublin that has much to say to the present day.
