Kabosh Theatre Company presents Hostel By Fionnuala Kennedy Thursday 26th January 2012 8pm

"I'd heard horror stories of hostels...I thought they'd be one tiny room with a mattress on the floor, where you and your child would sleep behind a dodgy door with druggies coming to kill you in the night"

Maria is going places. She's getting an education, a degree, and she's getting out. Then she gets pregnant - and like that...she's written off.

Placed in sheltered accommodation she discovers a world beyond hooped earrings and pyjamas, through friendship, night-feeds and WKD.

"Hostel is warm, funny and thought-provoking. That said this is a nuanced and relevant discussion of issues that, as a society, we all too often prefer to brush under the carpet." - CULTURE NORTHERN IRELAND

"Insightful, funny & poignant and from a world that is so very rarely (if ever) pictured on the stage. Fionnuala Kennedy has skillfully created a piece of theatre that will stand the test of time and has relevance all over the world. Bravo." - CARRIE ANNE MCCRUDDEN, BELFAST FRINGE FESTIVAL
