Pulled, written by Niamh Moloney, will be performed at The Town Hall Theatre on next Monday night, October 23 as part of a national tour.

It’s an uncompromising, new comedy about female sexuality and the social media generation.

Amanda, played by Niamh Moloney, and Michelle, played by Andrea Bolger, need help to retrace their drink-fuelled steps from the night before through a trail of Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook and selfies. Hungover, emotional and gloriously unapologetic, this ‘man-eating’ duo strut their stuff in front of their imagined social media audience in a performance that pushes buttons and boundaries . . . until Michelle finds herself maybe – possibly – probably in need of the morning-after pill, and they’re reminded that life isn’t as straightforward as they’d thought.

Pulled is a collaboration between Central Arts of Waterford, and Devious Theatre of Kilkenny, which Niamh Moloney co-founded.

The 75-minute piece is at the Town Hall on Monday night and tickets, €16/15,are available at tht.ie or 091-569777.
