The Night Joe Dolans Car Broke Down

The hit music & comedy show The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down is returning to The Olympia Theatre from 13th to 18th February 2017 (including a matinee performance on Sat 18th Feb). This will be the show's 6th run at The Olympia, where it has been enjoyed by over 40,000 people to date!

Imagine being stranded with the legendary Joe Dolan in a rural pub in Cavan on the night his car breaks down.  That’s just the sort of fantasy scenario that’s imagined in “The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down” a play written and directed by Padraic McIntyre. 

The play is set on a stormy St. Stephen’s night as people gather to celebrate the 60th birthday party of The Horse Munley.  As the storm worsens and people head home, a knock to the door brings the night’s entertainment to a new level.  As the play unfolds so too does personal secrets, the music and the craic.

This hilarious show has been a sell out success in theatres all over the country including The Olympia, The Ramor Theatre Virginia, Roscommon, Longford, Mullingar, Monaghan and Galway. Mixing comedy, drama and music it is a treat for all theatre and Joe Dolan fans alike!
