Festival on Tour
Hooked! (Verdant Productions): 25 Sept – 10 Oct, Festival on Tour
'Hooked! is a cracker.' - Sunday Independent
Attractive young Dubliner Lydia retreats to a country village in an attempt to escape from her past and reinvent her future. She moves in next door to Tom and Mary, the typical country neighbours.
Or are they?
Lydia quickly becomes the object of curiosity, not only for Tom and Mary, but for the community at large. Tension mounts between the two women, setting in motion a gripping and unexpected chain of events that threatens to expose the secrets and lies bubbling beneath the surface of this close-knit rural community.
A very funny – and sometimes alarming – look at the realities of modern small-town Ireland, Hooked! makes a welcome return to Dublin’s stages following its hugely successful premiere production in Waterford and at the Viking Theatre earlier this year.
Contains strong language.
