Dublin Will Show You How

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.

The New Theatre

The acclaimed Irish duo of singer/actress Honor Heffernan (Louis Stewart, Neil Jordan's "Angel"), and composer/keyboard player Trevor Knight (Auto Da Fe), present their Cabaret/Speakeasy-style show, "The Whistling Girl", creating a spellbinding alternative musical extravaganza of song and spoken word based on the lyrics of American wit and feminist icon Dorothy Parker. The original and unique music composed by Trevor transforms the poems of Parker into songs, using her witty, droll and sometimes heart rending lyrics. Each of the songs create individual tableaux or dream moments from Parker

The Country Girls

Abbey Theatre

Edna O'Brien revisits her era-defining debut novel in a new stage adaptation. All of Edna O'Brien's novels published during the 1960s were ruled "indecent and obscene" under the Censorship of Publications Act. This started when the publication of The Country Girls caused outrage. It was banned in Ireland by the authorities and publicly burned by the clergy. Notoriety quickly turned to fame and this coming of age story of two young women in 1950s Ireland became a best-seller. The Country Girls is the Dublin: One City, One Book 2019 Choice. #TheCountryGirls Booking Information Times: M
