The Bruising of Clouds by Sean McLoughlin

The Bruising Of CloudsThe Bruising of Clouds

A Dublin love story.

Kelly thinks Martin is a strange but lovely youngfella. Deano thinks Martin is definitely not a youngfella, and that he should keep his paws off his girlfriend. Martin thinks bad karma is going to destroy everything around him, including Kelly…

And maybe Deano.

This new play from Fishamble tells the story of an unlikely couple falling into each other, falling over each other and trying to help each other back up.

The Bruising of Clouds was our third production of a play by Sean McLoughlin, following on from the great success of Big Ole Piece of Cake and Noah and the Tower Flower (Irish Times Theatre Award for Best New Play, 2007).
