Interactive theatre from award winning Sunday’s Child.

Meet Jamie, Sive and Collette: three best friends on a wild night out in Dublin.

By the end of the night, Collette will be dead.
Can you save her?

The Friday Night Effect combines compelling new writing with an edge-of-your-seat interactive experience. At crucial turning points in the story, the fate of the characters will be in the hands of the audience, whose decisions will change their stories irrevocably.

Funny, insightful and provocative, this interactive piece is brought to you by the creators of My Name is Saoirse and Overshadowed.

Strong language, sexual references.

“Cleverly conceived and well acted, as a social experiment it works, and as a story, it’s one worth hearing.”
