Eamonn (From Menswear) is a one-man musical comedy interrogating the essence of Irish identity and culture while asking the questions: What makes someone Irish? Who decides who is welcome in Ireland? And - do you have these in a size nine?
Eamonn is the manager of a menswear store. He is a young, devoted father and husband; a diligent worker; a considerate neighbour; and a passionate karaoke enthusiast. Like many young Irish men, Eamonn lives his life according to his own self-curated code of ethics, but the principles he once swore by become contorted and unstable when slowly encroaching questions of identity, morality and conscience start to plague his mind. Eamonn (From Menswear) is a stylish, political and provocative fashion-infused musical dealing with the idea of a nation slowly ridding itself of the stratification of race, gender, sexuality and religion.
But it’s a comedy, like.
