Babies and Bathwater

How do you leave when everything you’ve ever known is telling you to stay?

And why would you want to?

Evelyn’s been in love with him since their first meeting. She does everything he says, no matter how demanding. But when he betrays her, Evelyn embarks on a voyage for truth. In searching for him she discovers herself: her queerness, her autonomy, her full power - and it costs her everything.

A shorter version of this show won the Sean Meehan Identity Award at Dublin Gay Theatre Festival 2022 for its portrayal of religion.

Sloane Square Project

The Sloane Square Project formed out of the team developing Amy Garner Buchanan’s debut full-length play We Never Get Off at Sloane Square. Adapted from a formally innovative 500-page novel about a child genius and his suicidal mother, this piece has undergone years of R&D with a committed team. It was part of the Park Theatre’s script accelerator programme in 2018 and had a short run at the Drayton Arms 2021. During lockdown, we did further R&D and ran weekly newsletter The Sanity Download - “for you, your kids, and your mental health”. We are working with Stage Inn Productions toward a longer run in 2024.

This artisically formative experience inspired Amy to continue writing and collaborating on smart, epic theatre that reminds you to hope. Babies and Bathwater is our second show as a collective. It appeared first as part of a double bill Bruised Fruit (Drayton Arms, 2019), then in The Writers Corner online scratch night (2021). Dublin Gay Theatre Festival 2022 awarded it the Sean Meehan Identity Award for its portrayal of religion.
