WAKE: a smash-hit theatrical phenomenon. 

From THISISPOPBABY, the makers of international sensation RIOT, WAKE is a home-grown arena party showcasing the very best of contemporary Ireland. Expect wild acrobatics, trad-with-a-twist, searing hot circus and outrageous cabaret. It’s an electric night out for you and your very best pals.  


WAKE is a high-octane, heart-thumping celebration of life, of togetherness, of grabbing the ones you hold dear and screaming I Love You over the music.
