Fishamble: The New Play Company in association with Sunday’s Child will bring MUSTARD, written and performed by Eva O’Connor and directed by Hildegard Ryan, to the Arcola Theatre, with previews from 16 May, opening on 17 May and runs until 3 June.
This production has already garnered several awards including a Scotsman Fringe First Award and a Lustrum Award in 2019 as well as winning the Critic’s Circle Award during its most recent run at Adelaide Fringe Festival this year.
Playwright Eva O’Connor said today: “’I’m thrilled that we’re bringing MUSTARD to the Arcola. This play is close to my heart and a real joy to perform. I’m delighted that London audiences will get to see it in such a brilliant venue.”
When E meets the man of her dreams, a professional cyclist, love hits her in the pubic bone like a train. But when it ends, she plummets into a black hole of heartbreak at the speed of a doped up team on the Tour de France. Mustard is a one-woman show about heartbreak, madness and how condiments are the ultimate coping mechanism.
Mustard is at The Arcola Theatre 16th May to 3rd June 2023.
