When the man of her dreams, a professional cyclist, leaves E, she plummets into a black hole of heartbreak at the speed of a doped-up team on the Tour de France.  

A one-woman show about heartbreak, madness and how condiments are the ultimate coping mechanism, by award-winning playwright and performer Eva O’Connor, directed by Hildegard Ryan.
