The Snapper

WORLD PREMIERE
14th June- 15th September, 2018 
The Snapper by Roddy Doyle
Gate Studio Commission

The Snapper offers a wickedly funny account of the ups and downs of family life and pregnancy in Northside Dublin of the late 1980s. It is salty and sweet and the Gate Theatre sits right next door to the Rotunda Hospital where Sharon’s baby ‘the snapper’ is born…

Please note, children must be accompanied by an adult. This production contains adult themes and strong language. Parental discretion is advised.

There will be a post-show discussion with Roddy Doyle and members of The Snapper cast on Monday 30 July. For more information, please see here.

There will be a Sign Language Interpreted Performance (SLIP) on Thursday 30 August at 7.30pm. Patrons availing of this service are advised to book via boxoffice@gate-theatre.ie to access a discounted ticket rate and seats with the best sight lines. Amanda Coogan will be the ISL Interpreter for this performance.
