Solpadeine Is My Boyfriend is about a new Irish generation. They were promised everything; a life of financial stability and job security but they now find themselves queuing either at the airport to emigrate or the social welfare office to sign on. It's a generation that feel entitled not to experience depression, economic or personal, and whose availability to over-the-counter medication allows them to numb both.
Stefanie Preissner's high-octane performance is broken up by moments of near stand-up comedy. The piece resonates with all Irish audiences regardless of where they are from due to the mass exodus of young people leaving for Australia, Canada and America.
Suitable for ages 14+
