“Eilis is addicted to mustard. When she falls madly in love, she’s sure her demons are finally banished, but when the relationship breaks down her shameful addiction to the yellow stuff returns with a vengeance.”
Mustard was selected and adapted by Eva as part of RTE/Screen Ireland’s Storyland, which has a mission to develop and showcase great local talent. It has been produced by Jason Forde at Four Quadrant Films.
Eva’s one woman stage play, Mustard, was awarded both the Scotsman Fringe First Award and Lustrum Award Edinburgh in 2019, with further performances around Ireland and a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022. The stage version was also directed by Hildegard.
The screen adaption of Eva O’Connor’s Mustard will tx this Thursday 20th October 2022 on RTE 2 at 9:35pm. It will be available to watch on RTE player afterwards.
