Kitty in the Lane written and performed by Áine Ryan
Kitty stands alone in the family kitchen – but what is family when your closest kin abandon you? Seeking refuge at a local beauty pageant should provide relief, and boyfriend Robert will be at the door any minute. Sore of secret and sweat, Kitty is on her way up, and possibly, out.

'It is rare to find a writer and performer whose gifts work together in such wonderful intensity and imagination...anticipate something that will leave you haunted’.

Counter Culture
Written & Performed by Katie O’ Kelly.  Directed by Donal O’Kelly
Welcome to the world of fashion retail, a labyrinth of sequins, hangers, sales targets and bunions where “the customer is always right”. Four shop employees. One day on the shop floor. A day so jam-packed it is bursting at the seams, and the workers feel as disposable as the clothes they sell. A whirlwind solo show by Stage UK Best Solo Performer nominee in the Edinburgh Fringe 2012. Come delve in the hidden world and behind the super friendly smiles of our department stores. Laugh, weep and scream! Ka-chinka-ching!
