She wonders if she’s asking too much of Love Island to forcibly shut down parts of her brain like rogue software. To ask these conventionally attractive people to drag their sunbeds into her brain and lounge around in the spaces where her thoughts should be…

Aisling and Matt are exhausted. 10-month-old Leah is too. Probably. They just need to get through this evening.

But with the arrival of two damaged friends, a collection of anxious memories, dreams, and visions start to surface, prompting them to ask what is real about this relationship, and what is just in their heads… And either way, can it survive?

Mixing sharp realism with interior monologue, colic is a daring new play of worlds crashing together: reality and fantasy, tragedy and comedy, Ancient Rome and The Olsen Twins. The outside world and our deepest, innermost voices.
