Double Bill: Girls Like That | The Panel

Abbey Theatre, Wednesday 13th February - Saturday 16th February 2019

A double bill of Girls Like That by Evan Placey and The Panel by Zinnie Harris.

Girls Like That
When a naked photo of teenager, Scarlett, goes viral, she becomes the centre of attention for all the wrong reasons. As rumours run wild and everyone forms an opinion, Scarlett is vilified, not only by boys, eagerly sharing her image, but also by the close-knit group of girls who have been her friends since the age of five. She tries to stay silent, but the battle lines have been drawn and the arguments rage around her, creating intolerable pressures.

The Panel
The last of the candidates has just left the room, the clock is ticking, there's a train to catch and an all-male panel must decide who to appoint. But what is really motivating them and whose agenda will prevail when choosing the successful applicant? In the course of this dark comedy, a panel of unreconstructed men reveal their own deeply sexist attitudes as they debate the shortcomings of a series of women candidates.

Ask Too Much of Me

Abbey Theatre

Ask Too Much of Me follows young people living together outside the law in the turbulent first half of 2018. They have a lot of questions and few answers, meaning they live by faith even if they don’t live by god. Where is safe? Who can I count on? Can love save us? Is a better world impossible just because we can’t imagine it? Come along, but expect no answers. For the 2019 National Youth Theatre, Artistic Director Veronica Coburn and playwright Dylan Coburn Gray have worked with an ensemble cast of sixteen young people from youth theatres across Ireland to create a new play around

The Snapper

Gate Theatre

A homegrown hit returns. An unexpected pregnancy. An unknown father. The relationships that matter, and the secrets that don't! The Snapper offers a wickedly funny account of the ups and downs of family life and pregnancy in Northside Dublin of the late 1980's. It is salty and sweet, and the Gate Theatre sits right next door to The Rotunda Hospital where Sharon's baby, The Snapper, is born… In 2018 the Gate Theatre commissioned Roddy Doyle to write a stage version of his much loved Dublin novel The Snapper. This new adaptation played to packed houses in 2018, bringing in new audiences
