Timmy plays hurling, the fastest field sport in the world. He loves it. He hates it. Honest, brave and hard-hitting, Spliced is a visceral account of his struggle to become an individual outside of the sporting institution that raised him. He wants to talk about identity, masculinity and mental health in a sports club. From one of Ireland's exciting up-and-coming writers comes a fun, fierce, site-specific show with thrilling music and video. 'Timmy Creed's explosive one-man show Spliced... this intense production fearlessly tackles Irish masculine stereotypes... One to watch' (Sunday Times). 'Totally extraordinary' (Tim Crouch).

Whats On Stage (3/5 stars) about 9 hours ago

I have to confess, I knew almost nothing about the sport of hurling ("the fastest field sport in the world") before going into Timmy Creed's solo show, which is being performed in a squash court at the Edinburgh Sports Club as part of the Traverse Theatre's Fringe offering. But the...

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 3 days ago

Go anywhere in the world, and there is a national sport. A legacy, held in esteem, equal to that of religion. The Canadians have ice-hockey, us Scots enjoy a round of golf or shinty. For Ireland, hurling places you in a league of their own. A hard-hitting insight into an...

The Scotsman (4/5 stars) 7 days ago

In creating a solo drama with its roots in the remarkable world of hurling, though – the thrilling and intensely physical Irish form of hockey that is often described as the world’s fastest game on grass – writer and performer Timmy Creed finds an autobiographical context for the discussion that...

British Theatre (3/5 stars) 9 days ago

"Creed’s reconstruction of himself is honest and fascinating and he is calling for a new kind of masculinity. We can all get behind that, and he is a tremendously likeable person in a show that uses physical strength to it’s best advantage."

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (3/5 stars) 11 days ago

There are 2,300 Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) clubs in Ireland. There are 265 in Cork alone. In Spliced, when Timmy Creed sings out all their names it is like an incantation, a powerful spell. For many yea...

Fest (3/5 stars) 18 days ago

Cork, a city of 125,000, has no less than 265 GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) clubs. To hear the club names recited, one after another, it's not hard to see—to feel—the similarity between Ireland's biggest sporting organisation and its biggest religious one. They are, in essence, the same totalising cultural phenomenon,...
