MEETING POINT : Outside the front of the Shelbourne Hotel - see map below

Two estranged sisters meet at Kildare Place to discuss a memorial to their father who was a celebrated campaigner against the destruction of Georgian Dublin. An awkward reunion turns to furious disagreement over their father's work and cuts to the heart of their own fractured relationship; one wants desperately to hold onto things as they are while the other wants to rip up the past.
The sparks fly in this witty comedy as they battle over family history, Brutalist architecture and the legacy of their colourful but controversial dad.
The Battle of Kildare Place is a heady mix of architectural debate and sibling rivalry in the heart of the Georgian City.

'Walkabout is brilliantly simple in its conception. It offers audiences a series of new plays that can be observed within the natural frame of an outdoor setting' Sunday Business Post

'High on the list of arts groups who have performed miracles of innovation, imagination and gritty determination to maintain audiences committed to live performance, are Bewleys Cafe Theatre. Go, you will certainly enjoy yourself' Nomoreworkhorse

In 2021, in response to Covid restrictions on indoor venues, we presented a series of original new plays written especially for historic Dublin outdoor locations. The series was a phenomenal success with glowing reviews and enthusiastic audiences. The Irish Times Theatre Awards nominated the WALKABOUT series for a special Judges award and one of the plays was nominated for Best New Play. We even received an invitation to bring WALKABOUT to Áras an Uachtarain!
This year we are back with a brand new play in Kildare Place, plus the hugely popular CYCLONE KID returns to Merrion Square.
