The New Theatre Presents the Irish Premiere of When Rachel Met Fiona by Colette Cullen
The course of true love never did run smooth!
Rachel and Fiona agree they met at a book group but not on the book they were reading or why Rachel gave Fiona a lift home or where they ate their chips en route.But Rachel did kiss Fiona, got her number and then never called. A year later they bump into each other….
WHEN RACHEL MET FIONA is a funny, fast-paced play that explores a relationship over time with complexity, honesty and humour. At its core is a love story that features a lesbian couple who are neither idolised nor criticised but are rather shown in their many colours.
Nominated for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize 2022.
