A Rough Magic Theatre Company presentation

West Cork Fit-up Festival, 2014


August 5th – August 10th


Written by: Mark Cantan
Performed by:
Peter Daly, Margaret McAuliffe and Valerie O’Connor.
Directed by: Lynne Parker

Running Time: 80mins – no interval

A clever comedy about the dumb consequences of hot sex meeting cold statistics.

Alan and Robin are a go-getting couple who want to spice up their sex life. Jezebel is a woe-fretting singleton who’s looking to get one. Follow this unlikely trio on a fast-paced adventure of misunderstandings and unexpected complications. Jezebel is a light-hearted lesson in what not to do when your sex life needs saving.


Peter Daly has been an actor for the past fifteen years and has worked with many of Ireland’s leading theatre companies. He is delighted to be working with Rough Magic again and playing at the West Cork Fit-Up Festival for the first time.

Margaret McAuliffe is from Dublin and graduated from The Gaiety School of Acting in 2010. Margaret’s previous work for Rough Magic includes the recent 12-venue tour of Jezebel and last year’s Digging for Fire at Project Arts Centre.

Valerie O’Connor is from Dublin and trained through the Masters in Classical Acting at The Central School of Speech and Drama. Valerie’s credits with Rough Magic include the premiere of Jezebel and its recent tour, the national tour of Plaza Suite and Serious Money.



“Brilliantly bizarre”
Irish Times

“One of the most enjoyable night’s theatre I’ve had all year… not in recent memory has there been so perfect a comedy on the irish stage.”
