‘Hey, meet me in the changing room?’

Performed in Croke Park, this new play explores mental health in young men in Ireland by drawing on the real-life stories of Gaelic football players.

Set on the eve of the championship final, this visceral, moving and at times humorous piece challenges the audience to consider how we as a community can engage with and support the young men of this country in a more positive way.
