Split Ends

There’s nothing a new hair-do won’t fix! Right? Amy has worked at the salon since she was 16. She loves it. She loves her fella Darren too: they bought their house last year and have it almost how they want it.  Her clients are the business; every day she has the chats with generations of Dublin women about their struggles, and their strength.  Amy's worked hard for what she has, and whatever she sets her sights on, she gets. Until now… Drop in to Split Ends to hear the things we can only tell our hairdresser and to get the best damn curly blow dry in town! FACT.

Written and Performed by Lauren Larkin

Directed by Aisling Byrne
