Luck Just Kissed You Hello at the Dublin Theatre Festival

29/09/2015 - 10/10/2015

All Day

‘You’ve stopped fighting now and are standing beside me. Here we are. My twin, my friend, my me. All gathered to say goodbye.’

How do you say goodbye to your nemesis, your genesis? Laura returns home for the death of her father, but Laura is now Mark. He, along with Gary and Sullivan, must decide on how he is remembered. They must find a way to forgive, find a way to each other and find a way to recognise themselves again.

Luck Just Kissed You Hello is a beautiful, relentless and fiercely funny play, exploring the delicate strength it takes to be all that is expected of you.

HotForTheatre creates theatre that provokes, moves and delights in equal measures. Since 2010 the company has enthralled audiences with shows including I ♥ Alice ♥ IEternal Rising of the Sun and Break. Having toured their work across three continents they return to Dublin with this anticipated new production.
