CHAROLAIS is a hugely entertaining tale of love, longing and one woman’s intense rivalry with a Charolais heifer. Noni Stapleton (Penny Dreadful) plays both the rural Irish woman and the sexy French singing cow vying for a farmer’s attentions in this “fast paced, witty, and intensely emotional” (Irish Times) solo show.
Directed and Developed by Bairbre Ní Chaoimh

AboutFACE aims to inspire the world through: approachable theatre, strong narrative-driven texts and solid story-telling.

“An AboutFACE production is getting to be one of those sure-fire events; old-fashioned narrative, acting, and an interesting story to tell.”

-Sunday Tribune

“Since 2002, AboutFACE Theatre Company has premiered a diverse range of American plays on the Irish stage.”


“Another fine production from the AboutFACE Theatre Company… a dynamic young group whose work to date has had its own share of plaudits.”

-The Irish Times

“A deeply moving theatrical experience… this intense drama makes a welcome Irish debut thanks to the relatively fresh-faced AboutFACE Theatre Company.”

-Irish Independent
