Description

Catriona has a history of making stuff up. But she’s getting better. When an attractive American tourist arrives, she decides to show him around her Northern Irish town. And she might blur the line between fact and fiction, just a little... Soon she's telling him about cannibal peasants, human roosters, and the largest orgy ever held on consecrated ground. A multi award-nominated show starring Rachael Rooney, about the stories we tell to escape. ***** (Stage). Originally produced: Jermyn Street’s Footprints Festival, Omnibus Theatre.
