An epic new spoken word comedy written and performed by Clare Dunne

Sure Look It, Fuck It was a magical spoken-word odyssey through the streets of Dublin about Missy, a returned emigrant back in town after years of trying to ‘make it’ in New York. As she discovered an Ireland of zero-hour contracts, pricey pints and living with parents until middle age, Missy grappled with job interviews, inward blues and dancing fools… and figured out what it was she really believed in.

A work-in-progress outing of Sure Look It, Fuck It, written and performed by one of the hottest rising stars of Irish stage and screen Clare Dunne, played at THISISPOPBABY’s Where We Live Festival in March 2018 to sold-out houses and rave audience responses.

Now brought to full production at Project Arts Centre by a stellar team of top Irish theatre makers, Sure Look It, Fuck It weaved epic comedy, athletic spoken word and dreamy live music to deliver a deeply moving tale about discovering what home really means.

Sure Look It, Fuck It is supported by Dublin City Council and Irish Theatre Institute and presented by THISISPOPBABY with Project Arts Centre.

“Dunne has already made an impact as a fine actor… this writing-singing-rapping début offers the additional pleasure of witnessing an artist finding her own voice.”
