The Kiss by Jimmy Murphy

By Joe Devlin


We asking for your help to raise funding to cover productions costs on a significant new play - 'The Kiss' by Jimmy Murphy.

'The Kiss' is a timely, touching and sensitive new work that explores love in contemporary society. The theme deals with same-sex relationships which we hope will contribute to the cultural debate in Ireland in 2015.

Eddie has dreams but he can’t get moving anymore. Life was perfect for him and Val. They’d always dreamt of opening a little place of their own - ‘Valintine’s Steaks and Suds’. And then one night, just as they found the ideal place, a kiss changed everything forever.

A riveting new drama from the writer of 'The Hen Night Epiphany', 'The Kings of The Kilburn High Road' and 'Brothers of the Brush'.

As the country embarks on a marriage equality referendum 'The Kiss' is an essential work that gives a perspective from one of Ireland's best known playwrights.
