Citysong Soho Theatre limited-run tickets available now at affordable prices!

Citysong tickets are finally available for the highly-anticipated London Soho Theatre run! The Verity Bargate Award-winning play has come to London following its premiere at Dublin's Abbey Theatre. The London run of Citysong is extremely limited, so do not miss your chance to catch this stunning play by one of the emerging playwrights of our time, Dylan Coburn Gray.

What is the Soho Theatre Citysong play about? 

Midnight taxis, underage discos, home nurses, Jewish launderettes, vigilantes, children, immigrants, and seagulls. Citysong is a poem and a play and a chorus of voices that presents three generations of a Dublin family through the course of one day. And that day just so happens to hold the entire past.

Intimate and encompassing, exuberant and comical, it’s modern-day Dublin’s Under Milk Wood via Metamorphoses (the Latin poem, not the book about the giant bug). Transformation, life, death, birth, separation and reunion. This is a show that is all different things at all different times, which seems fitting since it's all about change.

I came to this show to ascertain just what it takes to win a Verity Bargate prize foe playwriting. Possibly the answer is 'be different", as Citysong certainly was. This is a story of Dublin life told in the rhythm of a song with poetry, with some excellent, multi-rolling performances by the actors, against a simple, but very effective set. But, for me, this play would read better on page rather than stage. Citysong was too fast, with dialogue that was so complex at times, it came over as intellectually arrogant, and hence a little annoying. It seems to be getting 3* reviews, and I would agree. Some parts brilliant, others a touch patchy.
