Nobody likes Iona. Nobody except Pingu. It's hard to fit in, especially when one of you doesn't shut up and your best mate who doesn't talk always wears a tuxedo to school. Tired of the nonstop bullying and sadness, Iona and Pingu make the decision to get the fuck out of Dublin.

Texas Fried Chicken, abject misery and a one-way Ryanair ticket - what could go wrong?

As it turns out, emigrating is a fantastic way to get the attention of the cooler kids. Basking in all the attention, Iona is high on her newly-discovered popularity - that is until she realises she's messing with the wrong group of people. In today's society, where one's reputation needs to be defended with a fight, this was always going to ultimately end in disaster for everyone involved. 

Covering all the important topics from Kylie Jenner lip kits to Lucozade, Cuckoo is a brand new, contemporary look at just what it means to be part of the youth of Ireland today.

Lisa Carroll's witty and bright debut has been shortlisted for the Papatango New Writing Prize and praised for its reflections on the difficulties of leaving the place you grew up.

Bang in the creative heart of London, Soho Theatre is a major new writing theatre and a writers’ development organisation of national significance. With a programme spanning theatre, comedy, cabaret and writers’ events and home to a lively bar, Soho Theatre is one of the most vibrant venues on London’s cultural scene.

Soho Theatre owns its own Central London venue housing the intimate 150-seat Soho Theatre, our 90-seat Soho Upstairs and our cabaret space, Soho Downstairs. Under the joint leadership of Soho’s Artistic Director Steve Marmion and Executive Director Mark Godfrey, Soho Theatre now welcomes 167,000 people a year.

For me the combination of cutting edge new writing, the best in comedy, the reputation for brave collaboration and a young dynamic audience, makes Soho one of the most exciting venues in British theatre.
