Vessel By Laura Wyatt O'Keeffe Friday 20th March 2020 8pm

How far would you go for a cause you believed in? How far is too far?

Ireland. 2018. Abortion is still illegal, another pregnant girl dies and Maia is forced into action. Hear a story that could divide a nation, win or lose a vote, and make history.

This multi-award nominated, five star play challenges the choices we are given, uproots the lies and the legacies we inherit, and boldly protests for the power of the individual.

"Vessel is both poignant and subtle. The minimal set and direction make way for excellent writing to shine." The List

vessel‘She’s a…’ workshop With Laura Wyatt O’Keeffe 

Friday 20th March 2020 


The ‘She’s a…’ workshop uses poetry, pop songs and post-it notes to explore female identity and power, the labels we are given and the stories we choose to tell about ourselves.

The “MeToo” and the “Repeal the 8th” campaign were the first steps in a vital conversation about women’s bodies. ‘She’s a…’ workshop is a creative and collaborative way to further that conversation.
