Event description
How would Noni Stapleton describe Fishamble's CHAROLAIS? "Think Father Ted” meets John B. Keane,directed by Tarantino. It’s a little bloody"

About this event

A surreal, black comedy of love, longing and one woman’s intense rivalry with a Charolais heifer. Set on a farm in rural Ireland, Siobhan is forced to share the affections of her farmer boyfriend with the other women in his life – a sneering mother-in-law figure, and a sexy French cow. This is a muddy place of simmering desire, mixing the challenges of farming life and the joy of sex.

Reviews

“Not since Edward Albee’s The Goat or Woody Allen’s Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Too Afraid to Ask), has there been a more complicated, interspecies love triangle.”

Irish Times

“A fast paced, witty, and intensely emotional tale filled with laughter, loss and despair.”

Irish Times

“A Stapleton is a joy to watch…a charming piece of theatre…a truly enjoyable show.”

Public Reviews

“All Gallic sexiness, luxuriating in a French accent, and conveying what an unsophisticated Irish girl might not otherwise be able to.”

Irish Examiner

“A sweet treat…steamy with activity in the cowshed…Charolais is all heart.”
