These Stupid Things

These Stupid Things is part play, part human experiment. A White Label production supported by Science Foundation Ireland.


Two doctors work to save lives by improving the decision-making of their colleagues. As they fall for each other and their professional and personal lives become intertwined, will their emotions cloud their reason and rationality?


These Stupid Things is a new piece of theatre about the thin line between logic and intuition that exists in our heads.

How do we really make decisions? Why do our brains lead us to do stupid things?


We all make mistakes. Is love one of them?

A White Label production.


Supported by Science Foundation Ireland and Presented by The Festival of Curiosity. With development support from Kildare County Council, Fringe Lab and Science Gallery Dublin
