Raymond Scannell takes us on a journey through the dry ice and raised arms of SWEAT – Ireland’s first House music club – in this award-winning one-man show exploring 1990s dance culture.

Written and performed by Raymond Scannell
Directed by Tom Creed
Designed by Ciaran O’Melia

It’s the summer of 1988 and Cork’s emigration generation are taking refuge from their troubles on the dancefloor, following the beat of a new musical movement bursting from Ireland’s first House club. Among them is Larry Lehane, a vinyl junkie who remains loyal to the music as the scene crumbles around him.

In the intimate atmosphere of Cleere’s, scene of many classic nights at Kilkenny Arts Festival, extraordinary actor, writer and musician Raymond Scannell takes us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of an era. Directed by Tom Creed, Deep features footage of club nights and interviews with key figures from the scene.
