About the show

A Fringe Encore: Stay Up Late Collective and Bear Trap Theatre present Scott Lyons' Dublin-set drama about what happens when drugs are declared legal for one night. Inspired by real events!  More…

Dublin, March 11, 2015. A loophole in the law makes all drugs legal for 24 hours. On this night of rebellion, Harry finds himself under the influence of Saoirse. Bound by the ecstasy of their union, they share secrets and the stench of bloodshed looms. 'Yokes Night' fuses cut-throat dialect with stylized movement, forging a fresh theatrical experience. A hit at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Confusing, Quirky, Funny

See it if you enjoy Fringe shows and will like to see an unusual 2-people show of young people going berzerk.

Don't see it if you like well developed plots and fully developed characters.

Energetic, Imaginative, Confusing, Disappointing, Pointless

Confusing, Dizzying, Disappointing

See it if You want something deep and profound with little explanation about what is really going on.

Don't see it if You want to be entertained and enjoy something uplifting and fun. Couldn't really understand the male speaker at all.


See it if You enjoy a 45 minute 2-person show where a past experience is talked about by the woman and then things go downhill from there.

Don't see it if You get dizzy with disco balls & strobe lights, as they may make your head spin & are used throughout most of the show.
