A man sits down at a table with a cigar in his mouth. A woman holds up a bottle of wine to him.

A b*spoke theatre company production

World premiere | Directed by Loveday Ingram

Two men, together, on the edge of heaven.

In a strange restaurant two American giants who revere each other, Groucho Marx and TS Eliot, meet for an imaginary dinner, both in their own ways great defiant spirits, creating magic and anarchy, revealing secrets and sorrows, the evening presided over by a Proprietor, who seems to control the workings of the universe. Or does she? In Dinner With Groucho all is revealed, or nearly so...

Direct from Dublin Theatre Festival and Belfast International Arts Festival, b*spoke theatre company – “The very best talents in contemporary Irish Theatre” (Irish Independent) presents an evening that promises blistering wit, brilliant buffoonery, and reflections on the ephemeral nature of life. With Choreography by David Bolger (CoisCéim) and original score by Conor Linehan, the cast includes Ian Bartholomew, Ingrid Craigie and Greg Hicks.
