    Hi David,
    I went last night, Saturday 20th June.
    Great show. It was funny, sad and enraging all at the same time. I’m glad somebody is naming names at last.
    As regards Anglo: you made a compelling case for just letting it go; we are not hearing any compelling case for keeping it.
    I hope that sooner or later the nation deals appropriately with the individuals who are foisting this monstrosity on our children.
    I hope they pause to reflect on the damage done by another group of seemingly untouchable powerful men to a previous generation of Ireland’s children and the subsequent exposure of the guilty individuals.
    Keep up the good work.

    I really enjoyed the show – I saw it during the “preview” week. Didn’t expect it to be as funny! It’s great to see someone physically identifying the insiders and also very interesting to see how connected the generation of men who make up the Irish elite are (including political / legal / financial leaders and developers).

    You suggest Ireland leave the ECB. If that were to happen and we revert to the IR£, I presume it would mean any savings in Irish banks would be devalued? In that case, is it wise to convert spare € into Sterling or another currency?

    Separately; I prefer the old website – but that’s just me.

      That happened to me too. Then I realized that I was logging in automatically and didn’t need to go near the log in button at all.

    I hope you are filming this show. It needs to be seen a lot. I found it captivating, engaging, exciting, disturbing and exhilarating. And very important.

    I also saw it during the previews. well done! I also went to Dalky Book festival. David McWilliams, Tim Pat Coogan et al voiced a lot of things that i have been thinking about for a while now

    Hi David,

    I have heard great things about your show in the Abbey and would love to see it. Currently the rest of the dates are booked out, I was wondering do you intend on adding anymore performances or alternatively are you performing in any other locations?

    Kind Regards,

    Sarah

    • hi sarah, i am finishing in the peacock tonight and then taking a break, but i hope to be able to take the show somewhere in the autumn as the demand has been really something. all the best and thanks for your interest, david
