ERIS by John King
September 2018, Bunker Theatre
“You know what would really fuck them off? If you went out there and found the least suitable, most inappropriate, most outrageous hunk of a man that this fine city has to offer, and the pair of you rock up to that church service in May, arm in arm.”
Seán is feeling wronged because his boyfriend Tim has been excluded from a family wedding back home in Ireland. What does it matter that they’ve just broken up? The problem for his family is that Tim is femme, fabulous and worst of all, English. Spurred on by righteous anger, Seán is determined to do something about it.
As Greek myths, hook-up apps, and the musical stylings of Sinéad O’Connor collide, Seán launches into his hunt for the most disruptive plus-one possible.
