“When the anger builds what do you do? Try to control it.”

What do you do when life no longer parties with you but instead looms large with the big questions? What can you do? You can batter it into submission until – kicking and screaming – it stops asking what you have to show for yourself. From the mind of a former kick boxing champion (and developed with regular Enda Walsh collaborator Mikel Murfi) comes this explosive, physical, gut-busting – utterly fabricated – story like no other. Taking life’s big questions and leaving them reeling.

Fusing the music of iconic punk poet Jinx Lennon with a relentless physicality, Kicking All The Boxes is a theatrical experience like no other.


Kicking All The Boxes was written and developed as part of Show in a Bag, an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
