Cuckoo at the Soho Theatre

Cuckoo will open at the Soho Theatre Upstairs, directed by Debbie Hannan and produced by Metal Rabbit.

Cuckoo was shortlisted for the Papatango Prize and longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize and Verity Bargate Award.

Cuckoo tells the story of two Dublin-based outcasts who decide to emigrate to London, a move which finally draws the attention of the popular kids, with painful consequences.
