There is no harm in a little mirth
In this comedy of manners, double-entendres and double-crossings, an Englishman, an Irishman, a Scotsman and a dandy, compete for the hand of a rich bachelorette.
But is she all she appears?
Love à la Mode is a farce in two acts: there will be some lies, sword-fights, slapstick and assorted song-and-dance routines.
The farce is a time capsule to the Smock Alley Theatre’s 18th-century past, by Felicity, a band of players bent on bamboozling your present.
Dinner + Show available On Thurs/Fri/Sat. Only €30 for a meal, drink and show ticket.
“An impressively referential, while universally accessible, recreation of Macklin’s theatrical world, that leaves both the contemporary theatregoer and the ‘hardcore’ eighteenth-century-ist, in stitches of laughter.” – BSECS Criticks

About the Company…
Felicity is a performance company based in Dublin. We make aggressively present, emotionally intense theatre and music. We think theatre should be a fun, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind conversation with you. We tell stories that speak for themselves, and stage the unstageable. We risk vulnerability, bristle with sincerity, and take direct action. Our projects sweat, ridicule and surprise. Check out our website: felicity.productions
