Sticks and stones didn’t break Her bones, but words and pointing crushed Her. Is Beauty really only skin deep? Does Ugliness hide somewhere deeper?

This stunning play is a blackly comic, rich and vivid tale of a life lived in secret, a testament to the people who live on the fringes, under the nose of everyday life.The multi award-winning Fishamble production explores the surface, and what lies underneath. 

Fishamble is an internationally acclaimed Irish theatre company, dedicated to the discovery, development and production of new work.
