        Jezebel         Somewhere



Jezebel

Synopsis:
A clever comedy about the dumb consequences of hot sex meeting cold statistics. Alan and Robin are a go-getting couple who want to spice up their sex life. Jezebel is a woe-fretting singleton who's looking to get one. Put them together and the solution seems simple. But what appears at first to be the answer to all their problems turns out to be just the start of them. "Dating is always worth a shot. If they like you great. If not, well, it's been a learning experience. Apart from that one guy who wanted to get a guide dog so he could text while he was walking. I learned nothing from that encounter." Jezebel is a modern comedy of manners for 21st century Ireland.

Notes:
winner of the prestigious Stewart Parker New Playwright Bursary 2012.
