Project Arts Centre presents

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).

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
