The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down

By Padraic McIntyre

Imagine being stranded with the legendary Joe Dolan in a rural pub in Cavan on the night his car breaks down; that’s just the sort of fantasy scenario that’s imagined in The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down, a new play written and directed by Padraic McIntyre.

Following numerous sell-out regional and an unprecedented 10 year run at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin, this show at long last arrives in The Hawk's Well Theatre, playing for two nights only.

Set on a stormy St. Stephen’s night as people gather to celebrate the 60th birthday party of The Horse Munley, the storm worsens, and as people head home a knock to the door brings the night’s entertainment to a new level. As the play unfolds so too does personal secrets, the music and the craic.    

Mixing comedy drama and music it is a treat for all theatre and Joe Dolan fans alike.
