The 2017 Verity Bargate Award Winning play

Late-night taxis, teen discos, home nurses, Jewish launderettes, vigilantes, babies, immigrants, seagulls. Citysong is a play, a poem and a chorus of voices showing three generations of a Dublin family on one day.

Intimate and sweeping, joyous and ridiculous, it’s the modern-day Dublin’s Under Milk Wood via Metamorphoses. (Not the book about the cockroach). It’s different things at different times, which makes sense seeing as it’s about change.

Citysong premieres at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin before transferring to Soho Theatre.

Verity Bargate Award 2017 winner Dylan Coburn Gray is an Irish writer based in Dublin. His work has won praise for its innovative use of language and playful approach to form, blurring the line between poetry and drama. Plays include Boys and Girls (Dublin Fringe 2013, winner of the Fishamble Best New Writing Award, nominated for the Stewart Parker Trust Award) and Blackcatfishmusketeer (Dublin Fringe 2016, Edinburgh Fringe 2017). He is a collaborating writer with Malaprop Theatre, winners of the 2015 Spirit of Fringe Award for Love+.
