Comedy legend Sean Hughes comes to The Met with his award-winning new show, Penguins.

This is a show so full of surprises, and hidden twists and recurring themes that you find yourself mapping it out hours later. Sean takes us back to his Dublin upbringing and the, at times, utter awkwardness of teenage life. Why does society tell us how to behave and react? What does it have to do with Penguins? Buy a ticket and all will be revealed.

“At his funniest and most profound”– The Sunday Herald

Sean Hughes has performed all over the world and, as well as being the youngest ever winner of the coveted Perrier Award, he has also won a Fringe First for his short plays, Dehydrated and Travellin’ Light. Penguins was awarded the Herald Angels Award for Best Comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe.
