“Whirling Comedy” – The Irish Times ****

FRED & ALICE
Written and directed by John Sheehy
Performed by Cora Fenton and Ciaran Bermingham

A joyous celebration of individuality.



It’s not easy to get by in this crazy old world. But Fred and Alice have discovered that all you really need are 2 tennis rackets, a freezer full of ready meals and an immature coping strategy.

Fred and Alice first met in the home. It wasn’t really a home but Fred always called it a home because that was where he lived, and if you are not living at home then where are you? It was love at first sight for Alice. Fred didn’t talk to her again for years but then eventually Fred got used to her and it was love at first sight for him too.

From their days in care, to independent living, Fred and Alice negotiate the perils and pitfalls of life and love.

A blistering head wreck played at a hilarious pace!
