For generations, Catholic undertakers in Belfast have buried Catholics and Protestant undertakers have buried Protestants. So you’d think now that we have peace (mostly), we could stick to these rules? But when veteran undertaker, Gerry McSorely, finds his Catholic customers being stolen by young Protestant rival, Basil Gray, an undertaking war breaks out. It gets worse when young Polish woman, Irena Bukowski’s cut-price, new-age, interdenominational funeral home usurps them both… 20 September: 8pm 21 September: 7.30pm 22 September: 8pm 24 September: 7.30pm 25 September: 7.30pm 26 September: 7.30pm 27 September: 7.30pm 28 September: 7.30pm 29 September: 4pm / 8pm 1 October: 7.30pm 2 October: 7.30pm 3 October: 7.30pm 4 October: 7.30pm 6 October: 4pm / 8pm

Dylan Moran offers his unique take on love, politics, misery and the everyday absurdities of life, all served with poetical panache from one of the finest comedians of his generation. Moran has been called the Oscar Wilde of comedy and his famed style – deadpan, witty and crackpot lyricism – promises to be an unmissable journey through his interpretations of the world and swerving clichés to offer a cutting blow to our idiosyncrasies.
