Baby wipes, glitter and cans at the ready, Joni and Scarlett head off on their respective weekends. From two walks of life and residing on two sides of the festival, the pair unexpectedly meet in the neon fields of Electric Picnic. Hysterically riotous and soul-stirring, ELECTRIC probes our innate prejudices and preconceived notions of who we are while taking you on the session of a lifetime!
Festival season is too far away, let’s get this party started! ILA Productions presents ELECTRIC, a new play written by Ali Hardiman, starring Ericka Roe & Ali Hardiman and directed by Clare Maguire with original beats by Sam Hardiman.
Electric is a fun, light hearted comedy that comes with a punch. The show transports you to the fields of Stradbally where a 72 hour party is in full swing, Electric Picnic. Amidst the mayhem two young girls unexpectedly find their paths crossed.
Electric is a party in a play bursting with energy and fun yet the message at its heart is a serious one. Be ready to dance, sing and laugh with Scarlett and Joni on their journey through the madness.
“Smart, funny, utterly engaging… it’s the closest thing to heaven you’re likely to experience for quite some time.”
