Irish fringe theatre: 'The life & Sort of Death of Eric Argyle'

Eric Argyle is having a bad Sunday. It’s late. He’s still in his pyjamas. A room full of people are staring at him. And he died at 11.42am, two days ago. An issue that people don’t seem all that receptive to.

Nominated for ‘Best New Play’ at the Irish Theatre Awards.

Back from a hugely successful Edinburgh and Dublin run, Fringe First-winning Irish theatre company '15th Oak' are delighted to present The Life and Sort of Death of Eric Argyle, a play about a man who barely lived enough to have regrets.

On Tuesday 2nd April the tickets are £10 (£15 after that: let's take advantage! <book here> )

Running time: Approx 90 minutes
For ages 12+

The play starts at 7.15, so I suggest we meet by 7.00 at the latest, inside the entrance.

    I enjoyed the play and the acting was great, (I was furious with the uncle and wanted to get up and intervene), but I felt the production was too busy and could do with being more gentle seeing as this was the stage after death on the way somewhere.
    I also felt it hard to keep up with who was who etc.
    Sorry to have missed the social event afterwards
    See you next time

    Fantastic, genuine theatre from young, energetic cast! Would love to go back! Maybe on a Monday, as Revolution has an incredible 50% off all drinks and food all day! To be repeated! Well spotted Tiziana!

    Everthing about this was just right. The play was really good - well acted and a very enthusiastic bunch of actors brought a lot of energy to a fast paced play. The theatre was a real discovery - my first off- westend production which makes me wonder why I have wasted years trying to get tickets to westend productions. This is where it's at and as Marion said, this venue (and other such) should be on our radar. The Revolution bar was another discovery and the post theatre discussion on immigration could be a topic for a meetup...Thanks Tiziana for organising this!

    It's rare to have a good night out for a tenner. Small productions like this one are great. The play was interesting, enjoyable and well delivered by its young cast. I think we need to keep the Soho Theatre on our radar.

    Very crowded venue - I found it difficult to spot everyone and lost Raoul afterwards. If we do it again, I suggest meeting at the Revolution bar afterwards. The actors were fantastic, keeping a fast pace throughout the 90minutes, the story was quite original and touching, yet humorous and genuinely Irish under all aspects (i.e. the facial expressions, the relations between the characters, the humanity of it all). I think the cast delivered the play really well, I felt engaged and curious, if a bit puzzled at the start.

    Good story line, but rapid delivery made it tricky to catch everything

    People, I'm pleased to see we'll be quite a few of us tonight - it might be difficult to sit all close together. I suggest we gather in the bar area, after the performance, and decide whether to remain for a drink or move to one of the many pubs nearby (shouldn't be busy on a Monday night).

      Hey Atul : ) It will be my first time at Soho theatre, so I can't say anything more precise that 'meeting at the entrance', however, I'll be there a little before 7, wearing a dark coat and holding a MeetUp sign in my hand : )

    Unfortunately I can no longer make this due to a work commitment. Is there anyone who wants to go but hasn't got their ticket yet? If so, please let me know if you'd like to take my ticket.

    I booked my ticket: no seat number is given. Tickets are collected from the ticket office on the night, so make sure you arrive a little earlier. : )

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
