Work in Development
Oisín moved to London to pursue his dream of becoming socially mobile. Now, he is having an existential crisis in a Pret A Manger toilet, trying to remember his mindfulness techniques. Exploring the relationship between class, capitalism and health, ADMIN is about being poor, precarious and lonely, and adding items to your Watched List on eBay in the hopes of feeling better.

“one of the most promising spoken word artists in the country, who avoids misty-eyed accounts of society and instead cuts through with brilliant observational political commentary.” The Irish Times [break]
“There’s many a spoken word show about the injustices of capitalism, Thatcherite privatisation, and the difficulties of being gay in the modern world. McKenna’s show achieves the complex feat of synthesising all this in a beautiful, 55 minute, rage against the system…” [stars-5] LondonTheatre1 [break]
