Love happy, money happy, beauty happy, friends happy, sports happy, McDonald’s happy… Fuck My Life. What’s it really like being a teenager today? And how on earth do you become a happy one? What drives teenagers to profound sadness or extreme violence?

Ireland has one of the highest teen suicide rates in Europe. Why is this? FML casts a spotlight on the lives of 15 young Corkonians in this blend of spoken word and film, true confessions and lies.

Who is the funniest, most beautiful, most dangerous? Who will fall by the wayside? Who won’t live to see twenty? Who needs help? For everyone who has ever been a teenager.


A co-production by Cork Midsummer Festival, CAMPO Gent, LIFT, Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen’s and Everyman Palace Theatre Cork. Funded by Arts Council Ireland and a Small Arts Award from the Wellcome Trust.
