The Daughters of Róisín
Locked in a room for nine months in a house she once called her home. Ashamed, confused, trapped, this 'fallen woman' shares her powerful story. A poignant ode to Ireland's hidden past, the audience is invited to witness and journey with this forsaken Daughter of Ireland.
The play was developed through research about church and state-sanctioned abuse against women in Ireland over the last 100 years. It is an experimental and challenging performance, which hopes to give a voice to those silenced.
★★★★★ ''This play is everything great theatre should be.'' Michael Jackson, Belfast Media Group.
The performance at Hats Inc in Clare Valley will run for 2.5 hours and
will also include a performance of traditional Irish music following the
play, performed by Cahal Clarke.

''This is an Irish play, but the themes of the play transcend the Irish narrative. It challenges our views on the treatment of women in the past, and reveals how the stories still echo" Cahal Clarke-Director
