Everyman Palace, Cork
This highly inventive comedy by Scottish playwright, David Greig, sees the stage of the theatre transformed into a dimly-lit bar with the small audience seated at tables on it.
It makes for intimacy and a feeling of total immersion in this bizarre show featuring a bunch of mostly pedantic academics who have gathered for a conference on border ballads.
In keeping with the subject matter, the scholars speak most of the time in rhyming couplets which is clever and amusing.
Runs until Saturday.
