This hilarious volume brings together three funny, vibrant and theatrical monologue plays for female performers

The Wheelchair on My Face by Sonya Kelly
Sonya tells her story about growing up with poor vision that went undiagnosed until she was seven years old

Combining memoir, theatre and stand-up comedy, this delightful story of a myopic child shows us how we can better the world even if we cannot see the world

Charolais by Noni Stapleton
A dark comedy of love, longing and an intense rivalry with a Charolais cow

Siobhán is forced to share the affections of her farmer boyfriend with his beloved, prize-winning French heifer

Overcome with desire, Siobhán develops a homicidal jealousy for this cow, while feeling equally murderous towards her snobbish, soon-to-be mother in law

The Humours of Bandon by Margaret McAuliffe
Nobody knows where their five year old will take that first after-school activity

To the surprise of her mother, Annie takes it all the way to the top – of the Irish Open Dancing Championships

Armed with optimism, drive and passion, Annie's about to learn that life doesn't always go according to plan


'Amid nicely observed vignettes about the icky toilets, subtle mind games and opaque scoring methods of youthful dance contests, McAuliffe portrays a whole range of vivid supporting characters, while spinning a tale of a young woman finding her feet, so to speak ... both writing and performance are by turns sharp, charming and hilarious, evoking the jealousies and joys of Irish dancing, right down to the final piece of choreography. All round, a champion turn' ~ Irish Times on The Humours of Bandon

'A fast-paced, witty, and intensely emotional tale filled with laughter, loss and despair ...' ~ Irish Times on Charolais

'A lively, often funny account of a childhood marred by a disability which goes too long undiagnosed ... Instead of a triumph-over-the-odds-tale, she does something more understated, possibly more interesting: a story about coping with what life throws at you, and just being normal' ~ Scotsman on The Wheelchair on my Face
