"What are you looking at? What do you want? Remorse?"

Blacklight kicked off 2018 with Colm Doran's tragi-comic take on mental illness and navigating toxic relationships - Butterflies & Moths.

We armed our audiences with glow sticks, blasted out some Peaches and Megadeth, and watched a misfit group of friends unravel in this exciting piece of new writing.  

An abused partner, a desperate friend, and spinning paranoia take centre stage, as one woman's reality is questioned. When everything she thought was true seems to be a lie, she needs to take control. At any cost. Things got hella messy. 

Check out our production gallery here.

Produced in collaboration with Ciara Smyth for Smock Allies, as part of 2018's Scene + Heard festival at Smock Alley.
