Róisín and Chiara : Get Nupty

By Ron Bingham

Standing in the queue outside this show I was chatting to a couple who were going to see Phil Ellis in the next room. When Phil suddenly was cancelled due to technical problems, I recommended Róisín and Chiara (Róisín O’Mahony and Chiara Goldsmith) explaining to them that it was surreal and hilarious (going on the show I saw last year). They gave it a try and thanked me afterwards.

This anarchic and crazy duo gave us an hour of props, costumes, songs, dances, characters, passion, hilarity and joy. It is difficult to explain what exactly happened during the show, but I did get a kiss (for removing lipstick) although I failed to perform my knightly task of beheading the horse. This meant I didn’t get to have that romantic sit-down Italian dinner with Róisín.🙁

If you want to laugh until your sides are splitting, I can only suggest you get along to see this show before the word gets out. It’s part of the Free Fringe, but it is recommended to book tickets to avoid missing out on a seat. After these joyous and madcap hijinks I still don’t know what nupty means. Ah well!

Get Nupty is on at Heroes @ The Hive until August 25
