Scarleh’ Fer Yer Ma Fer Havin’ Ya

Lisa Keegan and Sarah Maria Griffin, in collaboration with the good folk of Ormond Studios, are hosting a night of entertainment on the 10th of June in the aforementioned Ormond Studios.

Inspired by events set up in both America and the UK, Keegan and Griffin decided to bring this idea to Dublin. “Scarleh’ Fer Yer Ma Fer Havin’ Ya” is an event which aims to be both cathartic and comedic. We invite YOU to come and share your old teenage loveletters, diaries, poems etc with us and the audience on the night. The cringier, the more hilarious, the better! Unleash your inner awkward teenager, unearth those long forgotten (or maybe not??) love letters etc and come along to Ormond Studios!

If you aren’t MORTO!! by the end of the night, then you, ehh, were never a teenager!
We hope to see you there!

Also you are more than welcome to come and watch and laugh, theres no pressure whatsoever to take part!

€3 Donation on the night if you feel its worth it!
