Reviews and Awards
Winner of the Fishamble New Writing Award
“An incredibly smart piece from Springheel Productions and an incredibly talented writer and actor. Larney is without a doubt one to watch. Not a single moment is wasted in this show and you shouldn’t waste a moment in booking a ticket before this run finishes.”
"By the end, the performance doesn’t promise a happy resolution but delivers an uplifting note albeit tinged with regret. "endings" is a full-bodied experience, a fusion of genres and art forms that captivates and provokes, leaving the audience to ponder the paths they tread and the deals they make."
“The Faustian bargain presented as slick gig theatre […] Fionntán Larney uses the rhythmic eloquence of hip hop to weave a world of suppressed male emotion”
