A blistering head wreck played at a hilarious pace!
It’s not easy to get by in this crazy old world is it? But Fred and Alice have discovered that all you really need are 2 tennis rackets, disproportionate reactions to minor accidents, an immature coping strategy and each other.  Fred and Alice first met in the home. It wasn’t really a home but Fred always called it a home because that was where he lived, and if you are not living at home then where are you? It was love at first sight for Alice. Fred didn’t talk to her again for years but then eventually Fred got used to her and it was love at first sight for him too.  From their days in care, to independent living, Fred and Alice negotiate the perils and pitfalls of life and love.  Come see this joyous celebration of individuality.

Callback Theatre in association with Friars’ Gate Theatre present SONIA

a new play celebrating one of Cork’s greatest living legends, Olympic and World Champion runner


Sonia is a play celebrating one of Cork’s greatest living legends, Olympic and World Champion runner, Sonia O’Sullivan.  The play features dramatic visuals and an intense physical performance from Cora Fenton.

A show that relives the heroics and heartache of Sonia O’Sullivan’s sporting career. A woman that captured the spirit of the nation! This is a rollercoaster ride through the highs and lows of the highly competitive and unforgiving world of athletics. All Sonia ever wanted was to run the perfect race. How much would you sacrifice to be the best?
