About Pumpgirl

In a gas station in Northern Ireland, barely north of the border, Pumpgirl gets few customers beyond lecherous men and cruel women who remark on her tomboyish appearance. Otherwise guarded, she has struck up a friendship with “no helmet Hammy” – an amateur stock-car racer who prefers to spend time with his unsavory buddies over his wife and children. As Hammy’s wife, Sinead, stays home alone, she simmers with rage over her isolated, disappointing existence. On Hammy’s birthday, their lives become perilously intertwined, leaving them face to face with a desperate future.

Irish Repertory Theatre is proud to present this heartwrenching original story of rural life in Northern Ireland by Abbie Spallen, a multi-award winning Irish playwright making her Irish Rep debut.

Spallen’s words…curl around each other like acrid diesel fumes creating their own jagged narrative… a piece of sparky and intricately observed writing.
The Guardian
A fiercely observed, unflinching play.
