A mystery illness afflicts the Tsar’s son which some believe can only be cured by Rasputin – a disco dancing monk. However, some of the nobility are not as enamoured with Rasputin’s involvement. They devise a plan to assassinate him at an opportune moment. If that wasn’t enough for The Royal Family, the local punk rock band Lenin and the Revolutionaries plan to take over the country once they win the National Dance-Off competition! Through it all, Rasputin does not waiver as he believes Disco Is The Way To Go!

Music plays a big part in the play as movement and song gives the ensemble the chance to perform together on stage. John Hogan said; ‘…music is a huge part of the play. We wanted to keep the story reasonably fun and entertaining and the 70’s soundtrack certainly does that. It also helps to exaggerate the social divides with classical music representing the royalty, disco for Rasputin and punk for the anarchists. Music helps us to reinterpret the Rasputin story and is marker to the audience not to take it too seriously…’

Disco is the Way To Go features with 14 transition year students from schools in Limerick city and county.

The TYT Company is being supported by two undergraduates, Aoife Breen and Cormac Laffan from MIC’s BA in Contemporary & Applied Theatre Studies who will lend their expertise to the production.
