Dublin Will Show You How

Abbey Theatre, Thursday 4th April - Saturday 6th April 2019

Dublin Will Show You How is a provocative play that offers a gut-wrenching glimpse into the intimidation and isolation of women living in the culture of coercion and crime. It speaks of oppression and ultimately women's ostracisation, where you cannot leave your home for fear of hearing or seeing something you shouldn't, or being implicated in somebody else's business. It is based in the north inner city of Dublin but it is about women everywhere and their survival.

Dublin Will Show You How is based on a concept by Vanessa Fielding, Artistic Director of The Complex, and inspired by workshops with women from the north inner city of Dublin as part of the Browbeating Project, a collaboration between the Abbey Theatre and The Complex.

Supported by Dublin City Council, the Arts Council, North West Inner City Partnership, the SAOL Project, the Snug Counselling Service, High Hopes Choir and the National Women's Council of Ireland.
