★★★★ ‘Part Fleabag, part Marina Abramovi, it straddles the line between theatre and performance art. Eva O’Connor delivers a fiery performance that never wavers in its intensity… Her writing, too, is strong. The script is densely packed with jokes and rich metaphors and she explores the issue of mental health with sensitivity and aplomb.

The Irish Times

‘O'Connor is captivating… Hildegard Ryan directs the performance with a confident vision… compelling…the writing has lyrical elegance… A vivid coup de théâtre renders it totally unforgettable.

Irish Independent

★★★★ ‘So scarring and funny, so laden with jealousy and hate and wickedness…The stagecraft is starkly simple, the set could be a work of conceptual art, but delicious and shocking to watch, if not to eat…What a privilege to see this …if you want to see a bit of real theatre, go see Mustard.’
