Dates, Times and Prices


Wendy and Liam embark on a first date both assume is doomed for failure. Wendy is forced into the date by her over-protective sister. Liam is forced into the date by a cursed past which dictates that he must continually make an effort. Can they survive the date, and move on from hearing the hilarious and annoyingly heartbreaking truth about themselves? Can Wendy and Liam find a connection that may lead them to a second date? A deliciously dark Irish comedy by Derek Murphy, starring Sarah Maria Lafferty and Brian Gallagher.
