Luck Just Kissed You Hello
A beautiful, relentless and fiercely funny play, exploring the delicate strength it takes to be all that is expected of you.
‘You’ve stopped fighting now and are standing beside me. Here we are. My twin, my friend, my me. All gathered to say goodbye.’
How do you say goodbye to your nemesis, your genesis?
Laura returns home for the death of her father, but Laura is now Mark. He, along with Gary and Sullivan, must decide on how he is remembered.
They must find a way to forgive, find a way to each other and find a way to recognise themselves again.
‘I position myself and focus on my shadow… If I stand in the right position I look long and square. No rounds. No circles. No bumps.’
Written by Amy Conroy
Directed by Caitriona McLaughlin
Starring Amy Conroy, Mark Fitzgerald and Will O’Connell
