If you were paying attention to our programmes over the last decade, you'd see that the kiss off line in each programme contains a line of dialogue from the show that was to follow. And over 10 years, we got 21 out of 24 right... which was a good batting average! Pulled was the first show in this time to not have a link to the next show. For the first time in a long time, we've nothing immediately lined up. We're going dark for a while and back to the drawing board. But when we return you can be sure we'll do it in the most devious way possible. Until then...

Following Niamh's highly successful self penned & produced tour of YER WAN in 2014 & 2015, Pulled continues to explore the debacle of being a young woman on the pull in this day and age. How do young women react to a crisis when the odds are against them in pretty much every single way? Pulled marks a major new collaboration between the two South East companies, Central Arts of Waterford, and Devious Theatre of Kilkenny, and is the third production in the celebration of Devious's 10th birthday. It is also the second in house production Central Arts will present around the time they are officially celebrating their second birthday.
Pulled will be performed by Niamh Moroney and Andrea Bolger who makes her debut with us. The show is directed by Ita Morrissey who we are delighted to welcome on board for the first time. It is produced by John O'Connell of Central Arts.
Pulled premieres in Central Arts, Waterford from September 13th-17th. It follows up with a three night run in the Set Theatre, Kilkenny from September 29th-October 1st.
