The Examination

The Examination

Axis, Friday 8th March 2019

The Examination is a new theatre performance by Brokentalkers, focusing on the theme of healthcare in the Irish prison system through a combination of historical research and testimony from prisoners and former prisoners. Featuring Brokentalkers distinctive blend of biography, socio-political discourse and breathtaking theatricality, The Examination is an uncompromising and revelatory look at an aspect of our society that is all too often ignored.

Over a 12-month period, Brokentalkers' directors Gary Keegan and Feidlim Cannon held theatre workshops and interviews with prisoners and former prisoners in various settings including Mountjoy Prison and PACE Training and Education Services. The Examination is part of a Wellcome Trust Award, “Prisoners, Medical Care and Entitlement to Health in England and Ireland, 1850-2000”, based at the School of History, UCD.
