CHAROLAIS
Written and performed by Noni Stapleton
Directed and developed by Bairbre Ni Chaoimh

Winner of the Bewley's Cafe Theatre LITTLE GEM Award!

CHAROLAIS is an age old tale of female rivalry with a new twist: the other woman is a cow, a literal one, a purebred Charolais heifer. Siobhan’s boyfriend is a farmer who devotes considerable attention to his prize heifer at the expense of his very pregnant girlfriend. Siobhan has developed a homicidal jealousy for this Charolais and is feeling equally murderous towards her snobbish soon-to-be mother in law.
A dark comedy of love and longing: rarely in Irish theatre are the challenges of farming life and the joy of sex expressed so frankly or with such charm.

“A fast-paced, witty, and intensely emotional tale filled with laughter, loss and despair”. ★★★★ Irish Times

“Stapleton is a joy to watch and she knows her audience. Love, family and loss all combine at the finish to create a charming piece of theatre. Well worth the venture. A truly enjoyable show”. ★★★★ The Public Reviews

“Charolais is a brilliantly dark and original show”. No More Workhorse

Charolais premiered in Dublin Fringe 2014 as part of Show in a Bag, an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
