Maz and Bricks tells the story of two young people who meet over the course of a day in Dublin. Maz is attending a ‘Repeal the 8th’ demonstration, while Bricks is going to meet the mother of his young daughter. As the day unfolds, the two become unlikely friends, changing each other in ways they never thought possible.

Fishamble presented the world premiere production of Maz and Bricks at Project Arts Centre, Dublin in April-May 2017, followed by a transfer to Belltable, Limerick.



‘Marvellous theatre… as beautiful a piece of insight and writing as I’ve seen in a very long time… extraordinary… Stephen Jones [is] exquisite… Jim Culleton directs with magical invisibility in a sparely perfect set by Maree Kearns… almost perfect and unmissable piece of deeply moving drama’ Sunday Independent

‘[O’Connor’s] original voice and theatrical perspective… an admirably unshowy production… inspired… an important, timely play but, crucially, it is also a really enjoyable one’ Sunday Business Post

‘particularly timely… excruciatingly funny… powerful’ Irish Independent

‘Maree Kearns’ set… like the relationship, is nicely tiered and staggered, handsomely reshaped by Sinéad McKenna’s lights… [O’Connor’s] characters possess both rhyme and reason.’ Irish Times

‘a provocative comedy… a compelling story… spins our imagination… shines with stellar authenticity… immaculate comic timing… funny, sharp script’ Sunday Times
