“a dark, delightful and intelligent comedy, a one woman tour de force” examiner.com

Solpadeine Is My Boyfriend is about a new Irish generation. They were promised everything; a life of financial stability and job security but they now find themselves queuing either at the airport to emigrate or the social welfare office to sign on. It's a generation that feel entitled not to experience depression, economic or personal, and whose availability to over-the-counter medication allows them to numb both. Stefanie's high-octane performance is broken up by moments of near stand-up comedy. The piece resonates with all Irish audiences regardless of where they are from due to the mass exodus of young people leaving for Australia, Canada and America. Solpadeine Is My Boyfriend was recorded in 2012 for RTE Radio One: http://www.rte.ie/drama/radio/genres-life-solpadeineismyboyfriend.html “And the Solpadeine flows past every door, distributing comfort and safety to every pore. The Solpadeine army now moves to my head, the other half tackle my heart, they tread, softly and carefully to where the pain is, and anaesthetise it with their lovely lovely fizz.”
