“More real than real life. I’m honest on there. I’m being honest. That’s important”

For those who don’t feel like they’re in the right life, online is a place to be yourself. Out in the real world though, things can be very different.

A story of first love through the eyes of a gender-curious teen, Scorch examines how the human story often gets lost amidst the headlines.

A tour-de-force, Scorch is an intimate solo performance by Amy McAllister, set in the confines of a circular space where audiences watch from all angles.

Directed by the award-winning Emma Jordan, the play explores issues surrounding gender disclosure experienced by a contemporary teenager.

Scorch received critical success after its short one-week world premiere last year in November as part of the 9th Annual Outburst Queer Arts Festival.  It won Best New Play at the 2015 Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards and Best New Play at the Writer’s Guild of Ireland ZeBBie Awards in May. Following its dates here at An Grianán it will be touring to London and then for a month long run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
