From the team that brought you ‘In Search of Mr B’ comes a sparkling new comedy that celebrates the work of Dave Allen, the iconic Irish comedian who broke through internationally as one of the most challenging yet fondly remembered comedians of his day. Funny, irreverent and touching, ‘Dave at Large’ reinvents Allen’s fabled comedy routines about politics, sex, religion and family for a modern audience. Three actors take up the challenge of portraying Allen as this new play daringly explores the complex life of a master comic.
