Bang Bang Bang

Stella Feehily
 
Stella Feehily brings her trademark wit and emotional insight to this revealing play that goes behind the public face of charities, journalists and NGOs, and is drawn directly from workshops and interviews with aid workers, doctors, human rights defenders, government advisers, journalists and photographers.

A seasoned human rights defender and her idealistic young colleague embark on a trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo. For Mathilde, it’s an induction into a life less ordinary. For Sadhbh it’s back to madness and chaos away from her lover and London – exactly as she likes it.

But while Mathilde lets off steam with a photographer and a spliff, Sadhbh has her own encounter: tea with a smart but brutal young warlord she’s investigating. Or is it the other way round?

Dreams of violence

Stella Feehily
 
Forty-something Hildy is in crisis. Her father is in a home. Her mother has moved in and shows no sign of leaving. Her son is a recovering drug addict, on methadone and hugely overweight. And her ex-husband persuades her to have sex one more time – only for them to be interrupted in flagrante by his new lover…

Dreams of Violence is a laugh-out-loud urban comedy, sharp, funny and satirical.

DUCK

A sparky and moving first play about female friendship.

Cat and Sophie are Dublin teenagers on the brink, growing up in the face of everything a city can throw at them. How can you learn to be good when your elders are no longer your betters? Somehow, the girls must cope - or find a way of escaping.

O Go My Man

Stella Feehily
 
Neil is a cutting-edge TV reporter struggling to re-integrate into domesticity. Back from Darfur with a head full of nightmares, he takes a hammer to his life — and his 15 years of marriage. But is his extra-curricular relationship with Sarah going to mend anything —or is it just that she’s new? Stella Feehily’s rich and frequently hilarious play is set in modern-day Dublin, a city full of celebrity chefs and 12 kinds of latte, and peopled with flawed characters who have enough trouble negotiating their own lives — let alone any crisis unfolding in the wider world.

This May Hurt A Bit

Stella Feehily
 

A witty, tender, and occasionally surreal exploration of one family's experience of the NHS.

A month after stating “we will stop the top-down reorganisation of the NHS that has got in the way of patient care”, the government launched the biggest top-down reorganisation the service had seen in its 65-year history.

Stella Feehily's play explores one family’s journey through the digestive system of the NHS, and asks: what is the prognosis for this much-loved institution?
