"A night of redemption for Northern Ireland's favourite performing family."
The Iconoclasts tells the story of an exuberant family façade that is just about ready to crack. Music, magic, poetry, drag and comedy meet in an explosive night of would-be redemption for the former celebs, but the cabaret-style comeback night just goes further and further off course.
Accompanied by a live funk band, fronted by the sexy Sweet Stax, lucky ticket holders are encouraged to grab a drink and strap in for the fiery return of the showbiz legends. The 'show within a show' form addresses our modern day obsession with fame and explores the resilience and complexity of the family unit within the ever-relevant context of Anglo-Irish relations. If this lot are going down, they’re going down swinging!
