 As part of its commitment to work that engages in public debates of national importance, Fishamble: The New Play Company brings Maz and Bricksby Eva O’Connor on an 11-venue nationwide tour, arriving at the Everyman, Cork, for three nights, Tuesday 17th – Thursday 19th April, with a post-show discussion taking place on Wednesday 18th, hosted by Sandra McEvoy, Head of Womens Studies at University College Cork.

The production, which premiered in 2017, tells the story of two young people who meet over the course of a day in Dublin. Maz is attending a ‘Repeal the 8th’ demonstration, while Bricks is going to meet the mother of his young daughter.  As the day unfolds, the two become unlikely friends, changing each other in ways they never thought possible.
