The outrageous and acclaimed cult comedy Buridan’s Ass, which enjoyed a sell-out run in Bewley’s Café Theatre last year, is going on the road this summer.

Mahone, the last in a line of taxidermists of Russian descent, is struggling to save his dying business. The trade in stuffed animals has hit rock bottom and his only commission, the corpse of a much-loved pet badger, has gone disastrously wrong. Moreover he is beset by a series of emotional and philosophical crises and is haunted by the demons of his philandering past. But, spurred on by his irrepressible apprentice Ernest Blades, Mahone sets out to overcome the paralysing effects of Buridan’s Ass Syndrome and to find redemption through physical passion.

..existential comedy at its best. Beckett would be proud…SUNDAY BUSINESS POST

..a laugh a minute...THE SCOTSMAN

…wildly and darkly comic... SUN INDEPENDENT

…the stuff of comic genius….

 Directed by Iseult Golden

Michael James Ford gives a cracker of a performance as the zealously nutty Mahone and Ruairi Heading is a splendid foil, a kind of bemused Laurel to Ford’s Hardy… MAIL ON SUNDAY

‘a fun-filled, pun-filled introduction to the bizarre world of taxidermy... Ruairi Heading is delightfully gormless as Mahone’s sidekick’ SUNDAY BUSINESS POST
