do not bring your kids (or do, but it might scar them for life)
Boys and Girls follows four characters across a single night; two get lucky, two don't.
Emerging from the Irish spoken word scene, this play paints the Dublin nightscape in pyrotechnic verse; 4 intercut voices muse, tease, and rant in an ever-escalating rhythm.
It's quite dirty, quite funny, quite mental, and a bit sad. (Seriously, don't bring your kids.)
After sold-out runs at the Dublin Fringe Festival 2013, Boys and Girls is presented in its New York Premiere by Murmur Productions.
