Overview

Everyone hates Iona. Everyone except Pingu. Fitting in is hard when one of you can’t shut up and your silent best friend wears a tuxedo to school every day. Sick of the ceaseless bullying and despair, Iona and Pingu decide to get the fuck out of Dublin.

Turns out that emigrating is a great way to get noticed by the cool kids. Loving the attention, Iona is drunk on her new-found popularity until she discovers she’s messed with the wrong crowd. In a world where reputation must be defended tooth and nail, this can only end in disaster for all involved.

From Kylie Jenner lip kits to Lucozade, this is a fresh, modern look at what it means to be young in Ireland today. Shortlisted for the Papatango New Writing Prize, Lisa Carroll’s sharp and sparkling debut dissects the true cost of belonging, and reflects on how hard it is to break away from the place you grew up.

Critic reviews

It’s wonderfully written, well acted and poignant

A Younger Theatre

Witty, well-performed, if sometimes predictable, comedy of teenage friendship

· The Stage

Funny, entertaining, touching and inspiring, this is a piece to which most of us can relate, and one that also resonates as a symbol of the human condition

· The Upcoming

This play is a raucous riot that never stops giving

· Broadway World

Superb script and performances
