It's 6:54, we're forty-eight minutes in, it's Summer and it's Friday.

The Family is a show about your family. This family is made of CARDBOARD and FAKE GRASS. This family are in a show about being a family and they have neighbours who borrow their stuff too often.

The Family fight. love and try to make dinner. The Family cry and stare as funds get thinner. But The Family love each other. Cos, after all you can choose your friends…

THEATREclub are tearing up ‘An Teachlaigh’,  taking a fresh look at the contemporary and the traditional Irish Family.

What people think

“The Family is about your family and, judging by the knowing guffaws and elbow nudging that ripples like a Mexican wave through the audience, THEATREclub have hit the nail on the head in their representation” – ****

‎”At this time of societal questioning and re-evaluation that seems laden with significance, THEATREclub are breaking down those fundamentals in the hope we might build them back up again.” – The Irish Times
