Don’t miss the last few performances of Amy Conroy’s fiercely funny, and intensely moving, play Luck Just Kissed You Hello as it visits Belfast, Donegal, Limerick and Dún Laoghaire, over the next ten days. The play set off on tour at the beginning of this month, and has played to full theatres and standing ovations; you won’t want to miss this intensely moving play.
How do you say goodbye to your nemesis, your genesis? Laura returns home for the death of her father, but Laura is now Mark (Amy Conroy). He, along with Gary (Will O’Connell) and Sullivan (Mark Fitzgerald), 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. How can any of us begin to unravel the complexities of our childhood memories and the individual moments we remember and polish as our own? This is a play about what it means to be a man, and the complicated nature and fluidity of masculinity.
Luck Just Kissed You Hello is a beautiful, relentless, and fiercely funny, play exploring the delicate strength it takes to be all that is expected of you. Featuring a stellar cast of Amy Conroy, Mark Fitzgerald and Will O’Connell, and directed by Caitriona McLaughlin. You won’t want to miss Luck Just Kissed You Hello for it’s last performances in the Lyric Theatre, Belfast, Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th November; An Grianán theatre, Donegal, Friday 18th and Saturday 19th; the Belltable, Limerick, Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd’ and finishing it’s successful run at the Pavilion theatre, Dún Laoghaire, Friday 25th and Saturday 26th November.
