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.
