Fresh from his acclaimed performance as Billy Murphy in the TV series ‘The Young Offenders’ and the feature film of the same name, Shane Casey returns to the stage in the 2019 national tour of ‘Wet Paint’ which he also wrote. It’s 2005 and the country is booming. Jambons are selling at an all-time high at €2. That blind opera singer guy is coming to Ireland for a special concert in Cork and tickets are impossible to find. Tony has a fresh tan from the Canaries; Pa is wondering how Liverpool will get on in the Champion’s League and Barry’s got a secret. Sound familiar?

Inspired by his time as a painter decorator himself, Shane Casey’s hilarious play depicts a day-in-the-life of two painter/decorators and their boss during the Celtic Tiger era, when anything was possible…at least inside your head.
Directed by Patrick Talbot. Also featuring Michael Sands and Tommy Harris.
