Presented by: Fishamble: The New Play Company

Fishamble: The New Play Company in association with Joanne Hartstone and Sunday’s Child presents hit one woman show MUSTARD by Irish playwright Eva O’Connor. A darkly comic play about heartbreak, madness, and how condiments are the ultimate coping mechanism.
