Cult is a comedy about five believers left behind after their cult's mass ascension. They're not sure why they haven't ascended with their fellow 'Future Architects of Tomorrow', and without their Chosen One to guide them they'll have to work it all out for themselves.
As a production Cult is very impressive. Most plays have their strengths and weaknesses, but Cult is remarkably consistent in its high quality. It's well written and well acted, but most of all I liked the pace - there are no lulls and the length is just right. Theatre company Diet of Worms should be very proud of Cult.
Conclusion: Starts strongly and just gets better - incredibly funny and well worth seeing.
Cult is on in the newly-opened Lir Theatre in Grand Canal Dock each evening at 9pm continuing until Saturday 17th September. On Saturday 17th there's also a 2:30pm show. Tickets cost €13 and the play runs for 75 minutes.
