Audio Described Performance: The Giggler Treatment at the Ark

17 - 23 Jan 2024, 12:00 am - 12:00 am (Past)

The Ark, 11A Eustace St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, D02 A590

This festive season, The Ark is proud to present The Giggler Treatment, a marvellous, mischievous new musical based on the novel by Roddy Doyle.

If adults are mean to children, they get the Giggler Treatment. It’s smelly. It’s squishy. And it sticks to your shoe. But sometimes, just sometimes, the Gigglers make a mistake… Can Robbie, Kayla, Jimmy and Rover the dog come to Mr Mack’s rescue before the poo hits the shoe?

Written and composed by Fionn Foley (Tonic, Fierce Notions), this glorious adaptation of the much-loved novel is teeming with Dublin wit, memorable melodies and belly laughs for children and grown-ups alike.

Jam-packed with big songs and even bigger PONGS, don’t miss the funniest, cheekiest, silliest show in town!
