Enter a world where the sepia tones of hidden history and the technicolour of live theatre collide. Using documentary material, witness statements, court depositions and newspaper articles relating to the case of Bridie Kirk, who died in Cork City in 1939 as a result of an illegal abortion, this play is about trying to find a way to tell a story that for 75 years has gone untold. The project is the result of an ambitious collaboration between a cast of five performers: Shane Casey, George Hanover, Nicholas Kavanagh, Roisin O'Neill and Noelle O'Regan, composer Tom Lane, designer Deirdre Dwyer, lighting designer Sarah Jane Shiels, dramaturg Thomas Conway and director Fiona McGeown.
Made with the support of the HRA Pharma Foundation, Cork City Council, Cork County Council, The Everyman (Cork) and MAKE; a residential workshop facilitated by Cork Midsummer Festival, Project Arts Centre, Theatre Forum and Tiger Dublin Fringe.
