Leaving Romania to make it rich abroad, Madalina finds herself working in a Dublin kebab shop. Fortunately her boyfriend has a better prospect. She'll be broadcast across the world, watched by thousands. It doesn't matter that it involves sex with strangers and the occasional bruise, it's a new start, and surely things will never be as bad as back home.
Kebab explores some of the harsher realities of immigration and what people are willing to give up in the hope of a better life.
What Do We Think?
This co-production with London’s renowned Royal Court and acclaimed Pentabus provides Festival audiences with an opportunity to savour a new kind of play about Ireland – one told from the perspective of a young Romanian writer of immense talent.
