By Carys D. Coburn With MALAPROP Theatre

Ebook £6.99£5.59

A play that tackles climate breakdown with big ideas, a lot of laughs, and some truly grotesque cabaret numbers.

Cruise ships, horny/murderous songbirds, fecund/fatalistic rabbits, loving/bruising parents and Minnie Riperton all make an appearance in this play with songs, which asks if things can ever get better.

HOTHOUSE by Carys D. Coburn with MALAPROP Theatre was first staged at Project Arts Centre, Dublin, as part of the 2023 Dublin Fringe Festival.

MALAPROP Theatre is an award-winning collective of Irish theatremakers, who seek to challenge, delight and speak to the world we live in (even when imagining different ones).

HOTHOUSE is also available in the collection MALAPROP: plays.

Press Quotes

'Malaprop's new show is many things. It deals with the macro (climate chaos) and the micro (the intricacies of family dynamics and intergenerational trauma). It's a surreal, sometimes dreamlike narrative full of invention, oddity, humour and intelligence... It's deadly serious and wildly funny... a sharp, nuanced script that rips along... Malaprop pulls it off with skill, style and substance'

Irish Times

'A funny and engaging fable for our times'

Irish Independent

'Glamorous and deranged... does not pull any punches'
