Outlier is the story of James; A lonely gay university student from rural Ireland, who is grappling with the blurry events of one dark night on a Dublin sports field where he met a guy, he wishes he hadn’t.
As he struggles to remember what is real and what is imaginary, this energetic one-man show confronts gay online hook-up culture, rainbow capitalism and issues of consent with humour, honesty and nuance.
As James takes us through the murky events of that night, he playfully deflects with stories of his astrology obsessed friend Jane, his performatively woke flatmate Frank, and a new overpriced mindfulness app he’s just discovered.
This play was a Bursary recipient 2020 and is featured in our 2020 book ‘The Plays Inside: Irish LGBTQ+ plays from a time of isolation‘ available to purchase online.
