Written and performed by Eva O’Connor, and directed by Hildegard Ryan, Mustard is a darkly comic play about heartbreak, madness and how condiments are the ultimate coping mechanism
When the man of her dreams, a professional cyclist, leaves E, she plummets into a black hole of heartbreak at the speed of a doped up team on the Tour de France.
‘What a privilege to see this …if you want to see a bit of real theatre, go see Mustard.’
‘Part Fleabag, part Marina Abramovic, it straddles the line between theatre and performance art. Eva O’Connor delivers a fiery performance that never wavers in its intensity… Her writing, too, is strong. The script is densely packed with jokes and rich metaphors and she explores the issue of mental health with sensitivity and aplomb.’
