The Daughters of Roisin

Thu 19 Sep 2024
Tickets from £12 - £12

Journey with Ireland’s daughters as they battle the shame of pregnancy out of wedlock.

Confined to a room for nine months in a house she once called her home. The Daughters of Roisin is a poignant ode to Ireland's hidden past that explores the church and state-sanctioned abuse against women and their babies over the last 100 years. The play is inspired by the story of Aoibh's great-grandmother and tells the story of oppressed Irish women as they navigate pregnancy in and Ireland that doesn't accept them. 

Please note this is suitable for 16+.
