Synopsis: A dark comedy of generational trauma, trust, love and a good pint, set in rural County Kerry, Ireland. In the vein of Derry Girls, Little Miss Sunshine and Martin McDonagh.

 

TW/CW: mentions and allusions to terrorism, references to death, sexual content and language, references to misscarriage and loss of pregnancy, coarse language, mild alcohol consumption, mentions and descriptions of violence, references to self harm and attempted suicide. 

 

ROLES include: 

 

Gráinne - the eldest Ó Súilleabháin. She’s overprotective, set in her ways and cares more for others than she ever could for herself.

 

Maura - the middle Ó Súilleabháin. She’s perpetually grumpy, and lost in life. She doesn’t give or take, just lets life happen to her.

 

Bláithín - the youngest Ó Súilleabháin. She’s the life of the party–loud, self absorbed, and desperate for attention.

 

Lorcan - Gráinne’s husband. He’s strong willed, a pot stirrer and a hard worker. And He’ll fight anyone who upsets Gráinne.

 

Donnel - Maura’s on and off boyfriend. He’s your typical man–he likes sports, beer and girls, and not much else. He’s got a bad reputation, but it might not be so deserved.

 

Rhys - Ó Súilleabháin family friend. They’re sensitive, kind hearted and quiet.

 

Nat - Bláithín’s fiance, Canadian. Constantly has to act as a mediator to this mess of a family. They’re well adjusted albeit tired.

 

Taylor - An American visiting. Sometimes ditzy, sometimes brilliant, but always trying to make friends and make people happy.
