“You can’t say you need love like a child
You can’t say because you are an adult.”

Adult Child/Dead Child is a monologue play that follows the story of a young person and the growing awareness of their imaginary friend. Dealing with a strained home life, a new town and an incident at school, our unnamed protagonist ends up being sent to a child psychologist… who is, in their words – an idiot.

At turns harrowing, hilarious and moving, AC/DC is a rare piece of theatre that approaches themes of mental health with warmth and hope.

Performed by Amber Deasy
Directed by Katrina Foley

Wandering Star are the team who brought you Fleabag by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, bedbound by Enda Walsh and Lex Talionis (A Tale of Vengeance & Feathers) by Liam Heylin.
