It’s never too late to look for love. Again.

But where do you even start looking in 2020, in the middle of a pandemic lockdown?

The personal ads? Tinder or The Knock Marriage Bureau? Or pray to “Saint Anne, bring me a man…”?

It’s time to take off the mask and reveal your true self.

A master storyteller who brilliantly weaves modern gay experience with traditional Irish storytelling, Richard O’Leary has created some of the most memorable shows in the Outburst programme over the last few years. From There’s A Bishop in My Bedroom to Stories for the Month of the Holy Souls, his autobiographical tales are warm and entertaining, surprising and revelatory.

Richard’s latest one man show takes us by the hand through the Otherworld of online dating. Expect dates, sweets, granola and adventures with Tintin and Snowy.

Don’t forget to pack Barry’s Tea, fairy cakes, two glasses, plastic gloves and beard oil.

This is a fairy tale. My fairy tales are true.
