Selma Mae Isobel Mahon seems to have the perfect life, beautiful home, children, architect husband.. but when Carmel Maria McDermottroe, her social climbing mother arrives to help her to organise a party to launch her new state-of–the–art extension, it soon becomes clear that all is not as it seems.

As the motley collection of guests arrive, glamorous neighbour Chloe, Claudia Carroll, tough-talking sister Maeve Karen Egan and the eccentric BernieRose Henderson  disaster ensues and the perfect façade, not to mention the extension itself, begins to crumble…

BOOM? is a comedy set at the height of the mythical economic boom, the people who live the fantasy and those who fall through the cracks, hopefully into something more real and more sustaining.

This is a play for anyone who ever had a bad hair day, may never own a helicopter and knows the difference between an abstract sculpture and a bicycle helmet.
