Lords of Strut presents
Dream Factory

Live at The Everyman

Come and experience a sneak peek preview of a brand-new family show from Cork favourites Lords of Strut (Body Brothers, RTÉ) at The Everyman.

Explosive circus, dizzying dance and acrobatic mayhem all combine to bring us this exhilarating, heart-warming and comically cautionary fable.

The sleazy CEO of a greedy corporation and his mysteriously fluffy but deranged boss have brainwashed the consumers of Ballyplastic. One girl sets out on an accidental adventure that will bring her head-to-head with a despicable corporation whose greed and mania could destroy their town, the country, and possibly the world.

Lords of Strut lead an extraordinary ensemble (including Múinteoir Ray with music by GMCBeats) through this epic fantasy quest whilst shining a spotlight on the climate crisis. Dream Factory sounds a warning bell about destroying nature’s precious resources, gives us hope that we can find a better way and inspires us to look differently at the earth and all it has to offer if we just cop on and take better care of it.

Please note that this is a sneak preview taster of the full production which will tour in 2024.
