“I’ll not miss a lot about Crumlin but I will miss Texas Fried Chicken with all my heart.”
Everyone hates Iona. Everyone except Pingu. Fitting in is hard when one of you can't shut up and your silent best friend wears a tuxedo to school every day. Sick of the never-ending cycle of bullying and despair, the pair of them decide to get out of Dublin.
Who’da bleedin’ thought emigrating was such a great way to get noticed by the cool kids? Iona is loving the attention. Drunk on her new-found popularity, she will do anything to feel this way forever. Iona quickly discovers she has messed with the wrong crowd... and the wrong penguin. In a world where reputation must be defended tooth and nail, this can only end in disaster.
Introducing a distinctive new comic voice from debut playwright Lisa Carroll, Cuckoo is a world premiere which looks at friendship, pain, power, and what it truly means to be yourself. Directed by Debbie Hannan.
