Set in the mid 90s, a turbulent period in Tallaght's social history, against the backdrop of the Drugs Out marches, Straight to Video is a biting new comedy written by and starring Emmet Kirwan, reuniting him with director Phillip McMahon - the duo previously collaborated on Kirwan's breakthrough work Dublin Old School.

With a cast of seven, Straight to Video is Emmet Kirwan's first ensemble piece, and has a stellar cast that includes Stephen Brennan, Colin Campbell, Lloyd Cooney, Derbhle Crotty, Callan Cummins, Kate Gilmore and Kirwan himself.
