You’re invited to a dinner party we’d never be invited to. Sit down, shut up and come overhear the conversations of four proud working class Irish folk as they discuss the middle classes, privilege and the bright lights of Lidl. This is a show for any of you who think Ireland doesn’t have a class system and for those of you who are woke enough to know better.

Spoiler: We’ll be reaching beyond the sob story clichés you’ve come to expect of us.

A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
