MUSTARD By Eva O'Connor

When E meets the man of her dreams, a professional cyclist, love hits her in the pubic bone like a train. But when it ends she plummets into a black hole of heartbreak at the speed of a doped up team on the Tour de France.

A one-woman show about heartbreak, madness and how condiments are the ultimate coping mechanism, by award-winning playwright & performer Eva O’Connor.

  • ‘Part Fleabag, part Marina Abramovic, it straddles the line between theatre and performance art. Eva O’Connor delivers a fiery performance that never wavers in its intensity… Her writing, too, is strong. The script is densely packed with jokes and rich metaphors and she explores the issue of mental health with sensitivity and aplomb.’ ★★★★ Irish Times
  • 'Eva O’Connor has a fierce presence, as hot, fiery and burning as the mustard of her play… skilful writing elevates this above novelty into a breathless, intense show’ ★★★★★ Ed Fest Mag
  • ‘one-woman show about heart break and madness is crammed with life, wit and tragedy…words dance through the audience, propelled across the room by her rich, powerful voice…O’Connor has created a form that fits her story, like mustard fits pastrami…a play that gets under your skin and does not leave. ★★★★ Broadway Baby
