Musical on Anglo Irish banking crisis to open in Dublin

Nov 09, 2012, 02:05 PM

The collapse of Anglo Irish Bank in the Republic might seem more suited to Greek tragedy than musical satire. The bank was nationalised in 2009 at a cost of about 30bn euros (£23.4bn) to Irish taxpayers. But a musical satire on the collapse of the bank and the Irish economy, with lead parts played by Spitting Image-style puppets, will open in Dublin next week.
