Each performance is followed by a workshop, facilitated in partnership with Mountjoy Prison which explores the themes and issues raised within the play.

Written by award winning and critically acclaimed playwright, Louise Lowe, and directed by Stephanie Dunne (Passion Machine, Olympia Theatre, Barbican Theatre London) Twenty4Seven is performed by a cast of already renowned actors.

Since its inception in March 1996, Magpie theatre in education Company have been committed to presenting plays which explore the darker side of urban culture along with plays which are on the current school curriculum. They have toured nationally and internationally with their critically acclaimed theatre in education programme in partnership with Mountjoy Prison, Dublin.
