Hugh Jackman shows support for new Irish play


A-list actor Hugh Jackman has urged his fans to go and see a new Irish play.

The Wolverine star urged fans to see Chris Edmund’s new play Dirty Laundry, taking place in Dublin’s Smock Alley Theatre.

Chris is the former head of the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts but now works for the Gaiety School of Acting

“My acting teacher and mate @chrisedmund has an exciting new play this month in Dublin. Get along if you can,” Hugh wrote on his Twitter.

Presented by the Gaiety School of Acting, Dirty Laundry is a theatre piece written for 19 actors.

Friends: Hugh Jackman considers his old acting teacher Chris a close pal

It is described as an attempt to “engage with the ideas of home in a very broad way embracing the journey of characters from the ghost of the painter Francis Bacon to people on the very outer of society struggling to find a place for themselves in a fractured world.”

Dirty Laundry takes place from 23rd – 28th June at 7:30pm in the Main Space of Smock Alley Theatre.
