Certain Things

Written & performed by Mary-Frances Doherty


“Spilt red wine.  Fragments of excitement.  The shattered reflection of the best night of your life.  The left over pieces of the worst party ever.  The best way to remove sick from your hair is to wash it.”


Themes of love, sex, lies and heartache fuse together to produce a high energy, visceral experience.  As a performer Mary-Frances recreates a party scene where all other guests have been deleted.  And as the action develops the audience get a glimpse of how events might unfold for a young woman living in Glasgow, determined to have a ‘good time’.


Approx. running time: 35 minutes
