A multi-disciplinary production dealing with the pressures of sport and masculine identity, challenging sporting institutions to broaden their perspectives.
Timmy is contemplating his 21 years playing GAA. He loves it. He hates it.
Honest, brave and hard-hitting, SPLICED is a visceral account of his struggle to become an individual outside of the sporting institution that raised him.
He wants to talk about identity, masculinity and mental health in a sports club. From one of Ireland’s exciting upcoming writers comes SPLICED, a hard-hitting, site-specific show with thrilling music and video.

.. the tension is palpable, as if a match is about to start... a love-hate relationship he can’t escape...this intense production fearlessly tackles Irish masculine stereotypes. Creed is one to watch.
Brave, highly physical, hard-hitting. Reveals a complex relationship with the GAA.
