Critically Acclaimed Comedy Comes to Hawk’s Well.

Critically Acclaimed Comedy Comes to Hawk’s Well.
6 October, 2021

An internationally acclaimed play is heading down the aisle to Sligo. Taking place on Thurs 21 October, lauded one-woman show Appropriate will be saying ‘I Do’ at Hawk’s Well Theatre.

Winner of numerous international awards, including the Lustrum Award at the Edinburgh Fringe, Appropriate is Sarah-Jane Scott’s acclaimed debut.

A darkly comic tale, the show centres on Sorcha; queen bee of her small West of Ireland town and proud fiancé of ex-county hurling hero Marty. She LOVES weddings and has been dreaming of her big day since forever and ever. However she has just fled her own reception. Has she gone mad? Or is this the first moment of clarity she has had in years? Perched on the edge of her ‘perfectly planned’ life, Sorcha is pure ragin’ at the dawning reality that she has never really listened to herself. Can she ever go back?

What is sure to be an unmissable night, Appropriate has received rave reviews, with the Irish Times calling it; “winningly tongue in cheek”, exploring “rituals of marriage and conventions of small-town Irish life have been updated to accommodate Instagram, but continue to grip tightly”

FEST Magazine commented that it’s; “hard to believe this is Sarah-Jane Scott's writing debut. Engaging, witty and with shades of delicious darkness, this is a seriously successful monologue on the social pressures faced by women getting on and building a future in rural Ireland.”

Finally, The Arts Review called it; “riveting and irresistible. A delightful mini-masterpiece”
