Masterpieces

This event has ended

Smock Alley Theatre, Monday 2nd March - Saturday 7th March

Masterpieces – She wanted it rough. She was wearing a thong. She didn't fight back. She shouldn't have been drinking so much. I paid her for it.

All of these have been presented as legitimate defences for rape, and sometimes murder. Angry? Confused? So is Rowena. Rowena wants to understand consent. She wants to understand pornography and kink and sex work. She wants to understand how women’s bodies, her body, became the property of the media and a broken legal system. The trouble is, nobody else wants to talk about it. As a frustrated Rowena looks for answers herself, she soon discovers that there are some things you can't unsee. Some things you can't unlearn. Some actions you can't take back.

Written in the wake of the 1979 film Snuff, Masterpieces travels to the darkest places of human desires to confront our attitudes to autonomy and consent. How do we navigate sexual freedoms in a way that protects women, without censoring them?

€1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre.
