About the Event

Doors & bar opens 6:30pm for a 7pm start.  A social evening to chat, drink, think and enjoy this thought provoking evening.   

‘Naylor writes with a poet’s ear for rhythm and timing, and delivers with a stand-up’s comic timing’ – Irish Times

‘Brave, funny, tough and beautiful writing’ - The Guardian


One day, a magpie comes into a little girl’s house by mistake. It decides it likes her. She spends the next twenty-five years trying to get away from it.

Stop Trying to be Fantastic is a story about suffering, saviour-complex, self-acceptance, and a magpie who refuses to quit.

From award-winning writer/performer Molly Naylor (Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You, Sky One’s After Hours) comes this lyrical and funny spoken-word show that explores what we owe to each other and what we owe to ourselves.

It’s an anti self-help show... that might actually help.
