This will be the first time the full cast of The Emergency appears onstage together (though we came pretty close to it back in the Trim Swift Satire Festival ). Dermot Carmody, Morgan C Jones, Karen Ardiff, Nick McGivney, Joe Taylor and Eoin Byrne, will perform a full-length live version of the radio show onstage. Just without the radio. But with visibility. Material will include songs and sketches from already broadcast radio shows as well as brand new script never before heard or seen (or indeed, written at the moment).

Leviathan will be hosted by David McWilliams, who will chair the debate “Are We Witnessing The Death of Capitalism?”. Other acts featuring will be Paddy Cullivan and The Camembert Quartet.
