Listen back to Niamh Fennessy on Showtime
Listen back to Niamh Fennessy on Showtime. Niamh is Waterford born and bred and came up through the Stage Schools of the city. She has also appeared in numerous musical productions on the Theatre Royal stage. Glue marks her debut as a playwright.
Listen to this podcast to hear how Glue came about.
Glue is a vignette of the life of a girl caught in the typical throes of young adulthood. Relationships, sex, theft, girl’s nights out, girl’s nights in, more theft, glue, boyfriends, breaks from boyfriends, siblings, death, God, car air fresheners, lipstick, lies, and…the list goes on.
But it’s like that for everyone sure, isn’t it?
Glue is a piece for one female performer and a willing audience, all happening in a narrow window of time as she waits for a fateful phone call. The audience becomes complicit in covering up the petty crimes committed by herself and her oh-so-important beau, Kev, as she fills them in on the story of how she has become the unwilling mule for his adrenaline addiction and kleptomania.
Director: Alison McCormack
