Show Time: 8:00pm

Tender Napalm is a heart-stopping exploration of love in the face of disaster.

If you think you know love, think again.In a time-less and space-less place a Man and a Woman find them stranded amid the dreamlike wreckage of their love.  Traversing the depths of their desires the lovers’ ravenous romance and uncensored intimacy hurtles them towards the dark fantasies of two young people in love.Through a swirling world of fragile memory, high fantasy, brutal wrath, and barbed humour they retrace their relationship and time spent together in a desperate bid to relive the ecstasy of their first kiss.

From one of Britain’s most exciting contemporary playwrights, Philip Ridley (Mercury Fur, Vincent River and The Pitchfork Disney) this violently beautiful play is presented by Spirit of the Fringe 2012 nominees Sugarglass Theatre and performed by two of Ireland’s rising stars – Aaron Heffernan (Picture of Dorian Grey; Abbey Theatre) and Erica Murray (Best Actress Nominee; ABSOLUT Fringe 2012).
