Bewley's Cafe Theatre is proud to present...



Written by and Starring Fionn Foley
Directed by Jeda de Bri

A hilarious multi award-winning new play by Fionn Foley about keeping your integrity at the world's foremost convention of kitsch!

Brendan Galileo is determined to make his mark on Irish political life and save the local school of music from being converted into apartments for racehorses, by joining the ranks of the European Parliament. However, with his voice so lost in a sea of tribal bureaucracy, he must take drastic action to improve his public profile. He must represent his country in the most vicious diplomatic catfight on the continent... the Eurovision Song Contest.

'A frenetically enjoyable one-man show... Foley’s performance is irresistible.' THE IRISH TIMES

'Feeling like It’s A Wonderful Life meets Mister Smith Goes To Washington... “Brendan Galileo For Europe” is a wonderful, joyous, celebration of a show with an irresistible performance from Foley.' THE ARTS REVIEW

Developed as part of Show In A Bag, an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
