The homegrown hit, The Snapper, returns to the stage for another run at The Gate Theatre.
In 2018 the Gate Theatre commissioned Roddy Doyle to write a stage version of his much loved Dublin novel The Snapper. This new adaptation played to packed houses in 2018, bringing in new audiences who had never visited the Gate before, and now the production will return to the Gate stage this summer.
The play offers a warm, frank and wickedly funny account of family life and pregnancy in Northside Dublin in the 1980s. The stage production at the Gate brings The Snapper back home to the Rotunda Hospital (where Sharon’s baby ‘the snapper’ is born) which sits right next door to the Gate.
The Snapper is recommended for audiences aged 12+.
