Guaranteed!

A dramatisation based on documentary sources about the bank guarantee.On the night of September 29, 2008, the Taoiseach and Minister for Finance decided to guarantee Ireland’s banks – to the tune of €440 billion. Guaranteed! tells the story of that night, and how they got there. Written by journalist and documentary-maker Colin Murphy, and based on official documents and off-the-record interviews, Guaranteed! reconstructs Ireland’s banking boom and bust – as it was seen from inside the corridors of power. An ensemble of actors plays a myriad of ministers, bankers and bureaucrats as they wrestle with the unfolding crisis. You will come away informed, enraged and perhaps a little heart-broken. We have stripped back our assets for a recession-friendly, bare-bones presentation where we will hold on to our scripts, while you can hold on to your wallets.

‘Tired of waiting for a parliamentary inquiry, the Irish public this week flocked to see Guaranteed! in search of answers’ - Financial Times

‘Excellent cast…remarkable…an outstanding debut’ - Sunday Times

‘Cleverly crafted farce makes us laugh til it hurts…deft and deeply intelligent script is a superbly researched and cleverly shaped reconstruction…It is, in the proper sense, a national event, a piece of theatre that performs a real public service…the arts community has the guts to do what the political system has failed to do’ -Fintan O’Toole, Culture Shock, Irish Times

‘brilliant…a gripping production…It has dramatic momentum and a nuanced script, which is extremely well researched’ - Dan O’Brien, Economics Editor, Irish Times

‘a very important play, a very fine treatment of a complex topic…Colin Murphy has served us all very well…I think people should come and view it. It’s very, very good.' - President Michael D Higgins

‘I really enjoyed the play…great pace and excitement’ - Patrick Honohan, Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland
