Traverse Theatre Company in association with Lyric Theatre, Belfast

Northern Ireland, 1989. Rebellious Fianna Devlin crashes back into the life of her pious sister Alannah. Together for the first time in years, they are back at each other’s throats in seconds. And when they are forced to confront their tyrannical father’s hideous legacy, all hell breaks loose.

Fuelled by Taytos, gin, 80s tunes and a chainsaw, it’s the Devlin sisters versus the world. Like Thelma and Louise’s punk daughter, Meghan Tyler’s surreal new play is a grotesque, black comedy celebrating sisterhood whilst reminding us that the pressure cooker of The Troubles is closer than we imagine.

Note: Contains strong language and graphic violence.

“ Gareth Nicholls directs a production that has the energy of a bullfight.”
