Finding a house is hard. Finding a place to call home is harder. When their mother dies, Jean and Gary are suddenly back together and getting to know each other all over again. On the surface, things look different but it’s funny how little has changed. When old friend and useless estate agent Ian offers to help them find a place together, long-buried tensions threaten to derail their already strained relationship. Can they ever escape their pasts?

A compelling new comedy-drama exploring our capacity to accept change in others as well as ourselves, All Mod Cons engages directly with current conversations about our complex relationship with gender, consent, and individual responsibility.

All Mod Cons premiered in Belfast on 22 May at the Lyric Theatre in the Naughton Studio.
