Sorcha LOVES weddings. Just like the other girls in the parish, she’s been dying for her own day since forever and ever. The thing is, she has just run away from her own reception. Has she gone mad? Or is this the first moment of clarity she’s had in years? Perched on the edge of her “perfectly planned” life, Sorcha is pure ragin’ at the dawning reality that she’s never really listened to herself. Can she ever go back?


“Winningly tongue in cheek…In Sarah-Jane Scott’s engrossing writing début, rituals of marriage and conventions of small town Irish life have been updated to accommodate Instagram, but continue to grip tightly…an affecting solo.”

Irish Times ★★★★

“In Scott’s sharply observed and supremely funny script, one woman’s wedding day opens up a Pandora's box of existential doubt…riveting and irresistible…a delightful mini-masterpiece”The Arts Review ★★★★

“Hilarious, with Sorcha’s strong accent and turn of phrase bringing the audience out of their seatThe Reviews hub ★★★★

"Smartly taps into the current zeitgeist: our insatiable obsession with weddings, and our hunger for funny stories about lovable, relatable country girls... one can't help but be wooed by (Scott’s) self-depreciating, acutely observed tales of love and loss." Sunday Times

" Appropriate is a must-see for anyone who has ever come in contact with an Irish wedding." 

Sharp…warm and humorous, intelligent and probing …If you are looking for a diverting, engaging and, yes, thought-provoking hour’s theatre, you need look no further.No More Workhorse
