Event Details

"An electrifying entertainer" - The Sunday World

"Charismatic David Gilna mesmerises on stage" - The Guardian

Award-winning playwright, director, and comedian, David Gilna performs his new show "A Bolt from D'Blue"—how humour saved my life after being struck by lightning on my holidays in America during the summer of 2004. 

 David Gilna is an award-winning playwright & performer from Swords , Co Dublin . This is his highly anticipated new show ‘A Bolt From D’Blue’.

 David began his creative journey as a writer after he was hit by lightning on a beautiful sunny day in South Boston. What are the chances? 1 in 1,042,000 a rough estimate from the National Weather Service. This sparked David’s career as a playwright. 

David has performed all over the world at some of the most iconic Theatres & Venues throughout Europe. Performing in The Globe , The West End, The Olympia Theatre , Swords Castle & Beyond.

He co-founded Theatre Under The Big Top at Electric Picnic with Charles O’Brien & Fossett’s Circus in 2008 . A festival favourite and Ireland’s my popular summer festival. 

His worked has launched the 1916 Easter Rising Centenary Commemorations , Swords Castle , Swords Cultural Quarter & The Atrium Space at County Hall. 

In 2019 David was awarded for his work as a playwright & performer by Fingal County Council Chief Executive Paul Reid and the Mayor of Fingal. 

The show is about 'how humor saved my life after being struck by lightning". David will return to Boston for the 1st time in April - the scene of the "crime" to debut his comedy show.

A Bolt From D’Blue is currently being adapted into a feature film by playwright & screenwriter Frank Allen (Twelve Days of May) & David Gilna.
