Fishamble: The New Play Company, in association with Sunday’s Child Theatre Presents
When E meets the man of her dreams, a professional cyclist, love hits her in the pubic bone like a train. But when it ends she plummets into a black hole of heartbreak at the speed of a doped up team on the Tour de France.
A one-woman show about heartbreak, madness and how condiments are the ultimate coping mechanism, by award-winning playwright & performer Eva O’Connor.

‘so scarring and funny, so laden with jealousy and hate and wickedness…The stagecraft is starkly simple, the set could be a work of conceptual art, but delicious and shocking to watch, if not to eat…What a privilege to see this …if you want to see a bit of real theatre, go see Mustard.’ ★★★★ Scotsman
‘scorching, honest and brutally nuanced…a confident and sensitive performance… beautifully crafted, with real elegance, subtlety and humour…Mustard has already caused something of a stir at the Fringe and is well worth a punt, if you can get your hands on a ticket.’ ★★★★ A Younger Theatre
‘with Eva O’Connor’s fiery and intense performance, you can’t help but stay fixated on her…Funny, touching, sad and all too easy to relate to, Mustard showcases some amazing storytelling…I left the show blown away by her strong and captivating solo performance. Strong, like mustard.’ ★★★★ Three Weeks
Eva O’Connor has a fierce presence, as hot, fiery and burning as the mustard of her play… skilful writing elevates this above novelty into a breathless, intense show’ ★★★★★ Ed Fest
