Eleanor Tiernan Enjoying The Spotlight Responsibly (Ireland)

Eleanor Tiernan Enjoying The Spotlight Responsibly (IRL)

Curled in up bed, Eleanor binge-watches true crime, completely insulated from the actual crime outside her door.

The gap between what she could be doing and what she is doing has never been bigger.

But her smartphone is about to be stolen and here's where she finds that the real world can mock us far more savagely than any online fantasy.

Following a stand-out Festival solo debut in 2019, Eleanor returns with an exploration of what, if any, satisfaction can be found and whether she's willing to endure the requisite amount of discomfort to get it.

Tiernan has a gift for wry, dark humour. ★★★★' The Age

Some people just have funny bones. Eleanor Tiernan is one of them. ★★★★' The Herald (UK)
