“Singlehood really shines in its sheer honesty…ridiculous,heartbreaking, hilarious…” Irish Times ****
“Honest, funny and at times a little sad, Singlehood will be enjoyed by singletons and smug marrieds alike.” Metro Herald ****
One week before hitting Dublin’s Olympia Theatre with new cast member comedian PJ Gallagher (Naked Camera), Singlehood the show that’s already wowed audiences in Vicar Street and was a Dublin Fringe Festival sell-out, makes it’s Belfast debut is coming to the Lyric for two nights only. Tickets priced at £12.50.
Singlehood brings the raw and revealing stories of real life singletons to the stage to hilarious and devastating effect. With a fantastic ensemble of seven performers including comedians PJ Gallagher and Eric Lalor, Singlehood is an exclusive look at the personal triumphs and losses we all experience but seldom articulate, framed by a stomping single’s soundtrack and original sounds by Aidan Strangeman, winner of So You Think You’re Funny? 2014.
The experience of being single in today’s society is a prevalent one as people choose to marry later in life, find themselves single after separation or, increasingly, choose to live alone. Added to that the massive momentum of online dating and the appeal for this show is clear; as well as offering big laughs Singlehood is a thought provoking show looking at how we organise ourselves differently in this increasingly global and fractured society. In making Singlehood Ireland is at the cutting edge of exploiting this single experience for stage.
