Work in Progress

Written and performed by one of the sharpest dynamos of Irish stage, Genevieve Hulme-Beaman, Rat King observes the darkly comic lives of David and Chrissy, a pigeonhearted duo clambering to make sense of the world in which they exist. In 2014, Genevieve’s debut play Pondling was a recipient of a Scotsman Fringe First Award Edinburgh, Stewart Parker Trust Award, New York Times Critic Pick and Best Female Performer at Dublin Fringe Festival.

Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him.
