In this case, the title says it all. Four young Irish female clubbers (Fast Food Collective) have seemingly got together to deliver a piece about four young Irish female clubbers.

Between them, they run the gamut of (shallow) emotions that might seem important when you are high at 3AM but are of limited interest at the same time in the afternoon.

Most of the text in a show that lasts little more than half an hour is delivered in rhyming couplets, which adds a little to the experience, as do a couple of dance routines.

On the minus side, the soundtrack may add atmosphere but isn’t ideal when some of the performers are struggling to speak clearly enough and easily become inaudible.
