Sophie and Ben love each other a lot, but sometimes, they make that a bit too difficult for themselves. Two twenty-somethings who are trying to find their way in the world, they guide us through their lives of low-key alcoholism, deeply rooted regret, and unfortunate sexual mishaps.
Join Sophie and Ben as they impart some words of wisdom on life, love, and modern day millennial relationships in a play that has been described by West-End Wilma as “quirky, wholesome, and desperately moving.”
Sophie, Ben, and other Problems was written by Kildare native Conor Burke. The show was developed as part of Soho Theatre’s playwriting scheme, and premiered at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre, London in 2017. Later, the play enjoyed a successive run at Assembly Studios as part of Edinburgh Fringe last year. This production stars Conor Burke and Cathleen Coyle, both graduates of Bull Alley Theatre Training Company
