Oisín left Dublin to pursue his dream of becoming socially mobile. Now, he is having an existential crisis in the canned goods aisle at Aldi, trying to remember his mindfulness techniques.
Exploring the relationship between class, capitalism and health, this show is about being poor, precarious and lonely, and adding items to your Watched List on eBay in the hopes of feeling better.
A story about love (“in some ways”) and money (“in many ways”), Oisín McKenna’s vivid and wry spoken-word performance sneaks up on you with exquisite, devastating honesty.
Invoking wearisome woke posers, heartbreak, Theresa May, Abba, mental health, this is one of our favourite queer shows this year and one of the most reflective of the times we’re in.
Content advice: mental health, suicide.
Suitable for 16+
Presented as part of Outburst Queer Arts Festival 2019.
