Sarah-Jane Scott’s internationally award-winning and critically acclaimed debut Appropriate is the darkly comic tale of Sorcha; queen bee of her small West of Ireland town and proud fiancé of ex-county hurling hero Marty. She LOVES weddings and has been dreaming of her big day since forever and ever...However she has just fled her own reception. Has she gone mad? Or is this the first moment of clarity she has had in years? Perched on the edge of her ‘perfectly planned’ life, Sorcha is pure ragin’ at the dawning reality that she has never really listened to herself. Can she ever go back? Winner, Bairbre Dowling Spirit of the Festival Award 1st Irish Festival NYC 2020 Winner, Lustrum Award Edinburgh Fringe 2019 Nominated, Bewley’s Little Gem Award Dublin Fringe Festival 2018 “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 griptightly...anaffecting solo.” Irish Times ★★★★ “In Scott’s sharply observed and supremely funny script, one woman’s wedding day opens up a Pandora's box ofexistential 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 seat” The Reviews Hub ★★★★ This work was developed as part of Show in a Bag, an artist development initiative of Dublin FringeFestival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource actors and theatremakers.
