Mustard by Eva O’Connor


Fishamble: The New Play Company in association with Sunday’s Child Theatre presents ​Mustard By Eva O’Connor.

When E meets the man of her dreams, a professional cyclist, love hits her in the pubic bone like a train. But when it ends she plummets into a black hole of heartbreak at the speed of a doped up team on the Tour de France.

​A one-woman show about heartbreak, madness and how condiments are the ultimate coping mechanism, by award-winning playwright & performer Eva O’Connor.
