Jesus, what an absolute cult!
Picture it. The near future. The seas have risen, the end times are nigh and you’re stuck…singing…and worshipping…in Athlone. A play with songs (not a musical!), This is NOT a Cult shepherds its flock into the bleak remnants of apocalyptic Ireland where Jesus 2 has gathered a desperate bunch of so-called sinners to his table to worship both his deeds and quite possibly his misdeeds.
Formed in 2018, No Desserts is a company devoted to bringing weird, wild, wacky theatre to Irish audiences in a way of digesting our most disturbing delights. 2019 saw company co-founder Gemma Kane’s 48 return to Smock Alley’s Main Space for a hugely acclaimed run and its tour in 2020 signals the company’s ever growing success.
