Luck Just Kissed You Hello

Presented by HotForTheatre and Galway International Arts Festival

Directed by Caitriona McLaughlin

Starring Amy Conroy, Mark Fitzgerald and Will O'Connel

How do you say goodbye to your nemesis, your genesis?

Laura returns home for the death of her father, but Laura is now Mark. He, along with Gary and Sullivan, must decide on how he is remembered. They must find a way to forgive, find a way to each other and find a way to recognise themselves again. A beautiful, relentless and fiercely funny new play, exploring the delicate strength it takes to be all that is expected of you.

'Luck Just Kissed You Hello' is a co-production between HotForTheatre and Galway International Arts Festival. It stars Amy Conroy, who worked with Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI), on understanding, not only what it feels like to be both genders, but also to investigate gender fluidity and masculinity through a transgender lens. Conroy’s other plays include ‘I ♥ Alice ♥ I’, which explored the love between two women; ‘Eternal Rising of the Sun’, and ‘Break’.

'Luck Just Kissed You Hello' made its world premiere at Galway International Arts Festival 2015 at the Mick Lally Theatre. “A blistering exploration of masculinity," The Guardian commented on Conroy’s performance, while The Irish Times hailed it as a “physical performance entirely free of parody.”

‘Luck Just Kissed You Hello’ is embarking on a national tour in November 2016.
