This June, the Abbey Theatre presents the world premiere of Shush, a new comedy from Elaine Murphy, the award winning writer of Little Gem.

It’s Breda’s birthday but life’s not been going according to plan of late. She’s in no mood to celebrate.

Her friends however have other ideas. Homemade birthday cake and too many Bacardis later – it turns out Breda’s not the only one with problems!

Shush is a funny and insightful story of female friendship and its power to overcome life’s adversities.

Join five Irish women with five different stories on a girls’ night in to remember.
