Outstanding production of Brendan Behan's Borstal Boy at the Gaiety. First class performances by all the actors, amazing creative design and direction in Dublin's most beautiful theatre. Well done to all involved, standing ovation well deserved.

We caught a production of Behans Borstal Boy. What better a place to see this than his home town! The theatre is beautiful and it has great acoustics. All in all a wonderful Dublin experience.

A wonderful theater in continuous production since the 1880's. Saw Brendan Behan's play Borstal Boy. Extended production so go see it before it's over. 50th anniversary production.
