Writing plays, whether you like it or not.

Once you’ve hit rock bottom, the only place to go is, erm…round in a fucking circle.
Ella’s got a detached retina and a chronic over-sharing problem, but she won’t let that hold her back from being a great date. With the help of the semi-lucid characters in her love addiction support group, SLAAGs, she’s determined to move on. But in which direction? A dark comedy about love, sex, addiction and starting again – if you can. NORMAL TURMOIL was presented as work in progress at Smock Alley’s SCENE + HEARD, performed by me and the ever-willing Daniel Mahoney. Sign in to view that recording. It returns to the Boys School for a full run in 2024. Thanks to Axis Ballymun for dramaturgical support and Fringe Lab for rehearsal space.
