A ridiculous, hilarious, outlandish character romp, guaranteed to take you on the most thrilling roller coaster ride of your life Deirdre Me is on a mission to show the world how awesome it is, one person at a time, starting with you.
Hailing all the way from Texas-Tennessee, Deirdre is more magnanimous than Gandhi, sexier than chocolate, hotter than the sun. With an artillery of brash offensive charm, outlandish opinions and ridiculous ideas she is locked, loaded and ready to open fire in pursuit of your awesomeness. If you think you don’t want that, trust Deirdre when she tells you ‘you sure as hell need it’. The louder you scream, the faster we go!
This is the story of one woman’s desperate search for meaning, in a world where dreams are sold as reality, the notion of ‘fake it to make it’ is pushed to the extreme until even Deirdre can’t keep up the pretence any more.
A hilarious examination of the constructs of fame, self-help and image and a ludicrous expose of the isolation and loneliness that threaten to engulf us all in our endless quest for perfection. The show is an audacious combination of story-telling and game show, with a dark twist. Everyone is about to ‘Wake Up & Deirdrealize’, not least of all Deirdre herself.
Nincompoop's first ever full length theatre show is bought to you by the company’s creator, first class Gaulier trained idiot Lucy Harrington.
