‘Mustard is a stunning piece of performance art about heartbreak and mental health.
O’Connor’s powerful exploration of one woman’s struggle to grapple with her mental health has a universally raw edge in a post-lockdown age. Though it is ostensibly a play about heartbreak, Mustard is a poignant reminder of the crutches we cling to when the world is spinning out of control………
Creative yet simple staging by director Hildegard Ryan allows Mustard to tread a defly-balanced line between monologue and playful performance art. O’Connor’s writing is as emotionally insightful as it is well-paced, peppered with caustic wit……..and an almost poetic lyricism that will feel familiar to fans of her previous plays, including Maz and Bricks and My Name is Saoirse.
…….Mustard remains a Fringe Festival must-see. It is both a triumphant tour de force and a timely reminder of the ways we can thread our lives back together in the wake of even the most searing sadness: one tentative stitch (and triumphant pedal) at a time.’
In 2019, Mustard won both a Scotsman Fringe First and a Lustrum Award.
Mustard will be at the Fringe until the 28th August at Summerhall. Tickets are available on the Edinburgh Fringe website!
