James Elliott’s bittersweet break-up tale Summertime returns, having been seen this year by audiences at Drogheda Arts Festival and Dublin Fringe. An intimate performance installation for two voices who are struggling to stay together. 

I try not to listen                                                         

But I don’t think he’s realised                                      

Just drinks his pint                                                      

Like everything’s alright.

Stash is an artist who works in a pub. Steve is her boyfriend. Their relationship is in trouble and they want to tell you how it happened. In unison, if they can.

When one thoughtless comment knocks the pair out of sync, the fallout causes a rift that only deepens over the course of a summer. Hear both sides of the story, intricately rendered with a dynamic sound design from Jenny O’Malley.


'heartfelt, genius, and beautifully executed.'
The Arts Review

'beautifully distinctive… an intriguing, intimate 15 minutes.'
