Picture this, the scene is set. On one side of the stage hangs a punch bag, on the other sits an over-sized beanbag. Actress Stefanie Preissner provides two responses to life-altering changes and emotional pain: ‘fight or flop’.

During this performance she reveals her character’s addiction to over-the-counter drugs in an attempt to counteract the depression she feels being an unemployed, dole claiming, and highly educated 20-something in Ireland.

Although the subject matter is dark, this play will certainly resonate with a lot of twenty somethings out there who have been left behind while their jammy friends opt for the so called ‘sunnier emigration route’!

Why not stay around for a post-show discussion with free tea/coffee in the bar.
