Sorcha loves weddings. Just like all the other girls in the parish, she's been dying for her big day since forever and ever. The thing is... she has just run away from her own reception. Perched on the edge of her perfectly planned life, Sorcha is pure ragin' at the dawning reality that she has never really listened to herself. Can she ever go back? A darkly funny tale of fighting for love (literally) in rural Ireland and a lifelong quest to settle down. 'Engrossing... winningly tongue in cheek... an affecting solo' **** (Irish Times).

The Feminist Fringe (5/5 stars) 58 days ago

I couldn’t take my eyes off this fast-talking Irish bride for one second of her hour-long, one-woman show. Sarah-Jane Scott knows how to tell a story, command attention, and take the audience along through a bouquet of emotions. Even when there were bits of Irish slang or cultural references that I didn’t quite understand, the story barreled forward and I caught up within seconds.

Fest (3/5 stars) 61 days ago

Hard to believe this is Sarah-Jane Scott's writing debut. Engaging, witty and with shades of delicious darkness, this is a seriously successful monologue on the social pressures faced by women getting on and building a future in rural Ireland.
