Written and performed by Rosa Bowden and directed by Hildegard Ryan, FRIGID is a heart-wrenching, coming-of-age play telling the story of 14-year-old Niamh O’Reilly.
‘Niamh is a ‘fridget’ – she’s never been kissed. Tonight, at the local teenage disco, her friends are on a mission to change that – whether she wants to or not. Set in Dublin in 2007, Niamh takes you on her journey through the ‘innocence and discovery and fun – and mortification and terror’ (Irish Times) of Irish adolescence. A coming-of-age comedy about frenemies, first times and figuring it out.’
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “An amazing comedy, with heart wrenching and tender moments” (Reviews Hub)
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “A one woman performance of utter charm” (The Arts Review)
Directed by Hildegard, FRIGID will be performed alongside live DJ Ciarán Gallagher, from 3rd – 27th August at 12:40pm at Underbelly Cowgate as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2023.
