“And we’re real fucking intelligent aren’t we? All mad smart after all of our M.Phils, M.Sci, M.A, M.Soc Sci, PHD bullshit. Jaeger bombs and fart jokes, the future of Ireland. Future of Ireland stuck in a pub making shit jokes…”

This fast paced, comic and unsettling one-man adventure sees our Lost Boy pulled apart by the voices inside his head. As Seán goes through the motions of a night out in town, what he says and what he thinks are in constant friction. Afraid to drop the facade, he fractures… with destructive consequences.

Irish Times Irish Theatre Award nominated writer Caitríona Daly makes her Project Arts Centre debut with PANNED following a sell-out run at Dublin’s Theatre Upstairs.

Performed with astonishing virtuosity by Ste Murray, directed with verve by Eoghan Carrick, PANNED is a play for our city’s lost boys and girls, speaking to our society’s unrealistic expectations and our battle for a place in a world smaller than our dreams.

My mind, mine, my problems, my ‘mental health’ it’s mine, not yours to put your fingers all over it, wouldn’t dig your claws into my cancer, dig your fingernails underneath my tumours, wouldn’t do it much good so why my mind” Panned
Join us after the matinee performance on Saturday 17th November for a post show discussion with the writer of Panned Caitríona Daly, writer Michael West and writer and theatre maker Una McKevitt. The discussion will focus on how our mental health has been represented on stage and how public attitudes and platforms have changed our views of this private space.

Michael West recently adapted Frankenstein for Theatre Lovett on the Peacock stage and Una McKevitt’s Madhouse written with PJ Gallagher was a hit at the 2018 Dublin Fringe Festival.

The conversation will be led by Panned director Eoghan Carrick. Performance at 2:30 Saturday 17th November.
