"humorous, affecting and quietly empowering" New York Times

"Conroy has her cake, eats it and shares it with her audience." The Irish Times.

I (heart) Alice (heart) I takes public displays of affection to dramatic new heights.

Meet Alice Kinsella and Alice Slattery - two gentle and retiring Irish sexagenarians who stole a kiss in the condiments aisle of a local supermarket, got spotted by a theatre director, and were coaxed into sharing their life-long love story with a live theatre audience.

The result is a stirring and captivatingly intimate piece of theatre that traces the Alices’ story of deep and abiding love for each other. Over cups of tea and slices of pound cake, the unlikely couple describe their life dramas - chance meetings, infidelity, battles with cancer, overseas trips - in a way that tugs at humanity and warms the hardest of hearts.

Written, directed and performed by Amy Conroy with co-creator and actor Claire Barrett, this fresh, frank and hilarious play, which gained plaudits from the audience at Abbey Theatre, will bring out the (heart) in you.
