SUSAN SMITH BLACKBURN AWARD SPECIAL COMMENDATION 2007. Stella Feehily’s 2nd play (her first was the brilliantly sparky ‘DUCK’) opened the Royal Court’s 50th anniversary year. It’s a funny and wise comedy about love, set against a backdrop of the ‘new Ireland’ – celebrity chefs, 12 kinds of latte and a thousand Polish immigrants to pour them.
“A remarkable play. The great joy is to find Feehily, while exposing the monotony of monogamy, also attacking the madness of a world that idolatrously worships fame, sex and celebrity” The Guardian
“Genuinely heartbreaking. Genuinely hilarious” Metro
EXTRA: includes Stella’s fascinating interview with RTE foreign correspondent Paul Cunningham.
