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.

‘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 

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

Sunday Times

‘Fishamble continues to promote new and innovative writing… The two actors are strong in their roles, and carry the piece with style.’

No More Workhorse

‘her dialogue is often wonderfully well written… realised with depth, finesse and precision… perfectly pitched pace… remarkable… utterly riveting and engaging… sparkling humour’

The Arts Review

‘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 keen ear for witty Dublin dialogue… phenomenally energised and authentic… compelling backstories and identities that make the play very watchable… an entertaining tour of Dublin city centre’
