Are you SINGLE? Have you never been SINGLE? Do you wish you were SINGLE? If you answered yes to any of these questions then this is the show for you. AFTER ALL, ANY DOPE CAN BE IN A RELATIONSHIP.

Singlehood is a new show conceived and directed by Una McKevitt. It is a funny, touching and honest exploration of single life in 2012, with a fantastic ensemble of performers including comedian Eric Lalor, actress Eva-Jane Gaffney, DJ Conor Behan and musical duo The Guilty Folk. Singlehood will run from 17 – 22nd of September, Upstairs in Project Arts Centre as part of ABSOLUT Fringe Festival 2012.

For Singlehood Una is collaborating with writer David Coffey (Dan & Becs, Fade Street) and together they have interviewed over 50 single men and women from 16 – 60 years of age. From these interviews they are devising an honest and touching show about the true highs and lows of Singlehood.

“This is not a play. There is no literary inventiveness. Just people talking about their lives, loves and longings” Human relationships are always at the heart of Una’s work and she works within a documentary practice drawing material from real life experiences in collaboration with the participants who share their stories with her. Her previous shows Victor & Gord, 565+ and The Big Deal have been described as “stunning..important..moving..life-affirming..uplifting..charming..compelling”.

Along with Una, Dave and the cast, the show benefits from the considerable artistic and technical talents of Barry Madden and a dedicated production team. Everyone involved in the production is working for free, excited to be involved in a project that will appeal to anyone who has ever been single or is thinking about it! We need financial assistance to help cover our production costs totaling €4000.
