Druid Debut - Babysitter

Siobhán is about to go on her first date in years and is terrified she’ll screw it up. Her friend’s highly-recommended young babysitter, Darren, arrives and finds himself giving her support while they wait for her date to collect her. But as the evening draws on, it looks as though Siobhán has been stood-up and she is the one who needs minding.

Babysitter is a comedy about resentment, entitlement and middle class sexual politics.

The Druid Debuts are a chance to shape the future of Irish writing. Come and be part of the post-show discussion!
