Appropriate - Lime Tree Theatre


Written and performed by Sarah-Jane Scott | Directed by Paul Meade

Appropriate, Sarah-Jane Scott’s internationally award-winning and critically acclaimed debut is the darkly comic tale of Sorcha; queen bee of her small West of Ireland town and proud fiancé of ex-county hurling hero Marty.

She LOVES weddings and has been dreaming of her big day since forever and ever.

However… she has just fled her own reception.

Proof of Covid-19 vaccination is required on entry to the venue. Wearing of masks/face coverings is mandatory once in the venue and throughout the performance.

Is it Appropriate? Has she gone mad? Or is this the first moment of clarity she has had in years?

Perched on the edge of her ‘perfectly planned’ life, Sorcha is pure ragin’ at the dawning reality that she has never really listened to herself. Can she ever go back?

“Winningly tongue in cheek…In Sarah-Jane Scott’s engrossing writing début, rituals of marriage and conventions of small-town Irish life have been updated to accommodate Instagram, but continue to grip tightly…an affecting solo.” Irish Times ★★★★
