Award-winning show Mustard by Eva O'Connor comes to Traverse 3

News 19 Nov 2020

MUSTARD, a one-woman show about heartbreak, madness and how condiments are the ultimate coping mechanism comes to Traverse 3 for a limited run.

Written by award-winning playwright and performer Eva O’Connor, MUSTARD took the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe by storm, picking up a coveted Fringe First Award from The Scotsman.

When E meets the man of her dreams, a professional cyclist, love hits her in the pubic bone like a train. But when it ends she plummets into a black hole of heartbreak at the speed of a doped up team on the Tour de France.

Eva O'Connor, playwright and performer said:

“I am so thrilled that MUSTARD is part of the Traverse 3 programme. In such a tumultuous year it's a real privilege to be part of such a great programme of work. To end 2020 knowing that MUSTARD is reaching such a wide online audience is a brilliant feeling.“

Jim Culleton, Fishamble Artistic Director said:

“Fishamble: The New Play Company and Eva O’Connor have both had long-term connections with the Traverse, and are delighted to share MUSTARD in December, while live performances are not possible. The Traverse Theatre is a leading light in producing and showcasing new plays, and this new online initiative is typically innovative. Fishamble is delighted to be part of it."
