“The planet does not need more successful people.” - David W. Orr, Eco-Scientist. “Phew.” - Pom Boyd, Actor.

Shame. You’ve had success but it feels like failure. You failed a long time ago but it still poisons you with shame. Sometimes it stops you from even walking down the street. How is it that failure can feel worse than dying? Through theatre, performance and original songs, this highly entertaining new show from Pom Boyd and Seán Millar invites you to witness a sacred punk theatrical ritual. Give up the exhausting pretence and wear your crippling shame on your sleeve.

Developed with the support of The Arts Council/An Chomairle Ealaíon. Pom is a participant of Irish Theatre Institute’s Six in the Attic Artists Supports Programme. Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival.
