Dubbed “one of the most commanding solo shows around today,” Kate Huffman’s shockingly hilarious, brutally honest solo show covers two decades of living with an OCD-instilled eating disorder. Fresh from her award-winning run at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, Huffman embodies 18 characters and uses multi-media effects to guide us through the toll her strict set of rules and rituals based around numbers and eternal body hatred takes on all areas of her life. Charm, wit, and giddy self-deprecation offer an opportunity for all people with obsessions, neuroticism, or negative self-talk to laugh at themselves
Smock Alley was the first Theatre Royal built in Dublin. John Ogilby opened it in 1662 as part of the Restoration of the British monarchy and King Charles II in 1660, along with the London’s Drury Lane (1662) and the Lincoln’s Inn Fields (1661). It was the first custom-built theatre in the city and still remains in substantially the same form, making it one of the most important sites in European theatre history. Smock Alley Temple Bar Theatre was the first theatre outside London to receive the title of Theatre Royal, but because it had been built on land reclaimed from the Liffey, the building was unstable and the gallery collapsed twice; it was rebuilt in 1735.
