Ross O'Carroll Kelly has to face down a new Tiger in town in his latest stage play Breaking Dad which will run at Dublin's Gaiety Theatre in April of next year.

Rory Nolan reprises his role as Ross in the new production with Love/Hate's Laurence Kinlan as Ronan and Philip O’Sullivan (The Tudors, Pure Mule) as Charles.

Set in the year 2022, Breaking Dad finds Ireland in the midst of an unexpected economic boom and the people are once again selling houses to each other for five times what they’re worth. Bertie Ahern is also set to become Taoiseach again at the age of 71.

Ross himself is entering his middle years without a care in the world. He’s got a son who’s a professional footballer, a career-minded wife who’s about to land the job of her dreams and his looks just keep improving with age.

Life is good. Until his teenage daughter arrives home from Wesley one night with the captain of the Blackrock College rugby team – and Ross is forced to face up to the lesson that you must reap what you have sown.
