Two plays from an award-winning Irish playwright.

Sauce is a new dark comedy about two women, both of them fresh out of controlling relationships, thrust into uneasy freedom. Mella is a compulsive liar. Maura is a kleptomaniac. Unsurprisingly, neither has any friends.

Can they overcome their flaws and shed their inhibitions to avoid dying alone? Or will their compulsions engulf them in the end? 

Ciara Elizabeth Smyth’s play is about monsters, condiments and dancing. Lots of dancing. It was first staged at the Dublin Fringe Festival in September 2019. It is at Bewley’s Cafe Theatre in April 2020.

All Honey was first staged at the New Theatre, Dublin, in 2016, and subsequently at the 2017 Dublin Fringe Festival, where it won the 2017 Fishamble New Writing Award.

‘Fast, furious, and fiercely funny, All Honey is a laugh-out-loud joy’
The Arts Review

Sauce will break your heart with a gorgeous vulnerability, while having you smirking at the cleverness of it all and laughing out loud’
The Arts Review

‘[Sauce is] a really funny (and very saucy) show that delights in and provokes hysterics’
Irish Times
