Eamonn [from menswear]


  • Playwright

    Fionn Foley 

  • Synopsis

    A one-man musical comedy interrogating the essence of Irish identity and culture while asking the questions: "What makes someone Irish?", "Who decides who is welcome in Ireland?" and "Do you have these in a size nine?" Eamonn is the manager of a menswear store. He is young; a devoted father and husband; a diligent worker; a considerate neighbour; and a passionate karaoke enthusiast. Like many young Irish men, Eamonn lives his life according to his own self-curated code of ethics, but the principles he once swore by become contorted and unstable when slowly encroaching questions of identity, morality and conscience start to plague his mind.
