There’s plenty of opportunity to see BRAND NEW WORK from us this festival season. We’re at Dublin Fringe Festival and Dublin Theatre Festival
Dublin Fringe Festival
In 2013, she travelled to have an abortion. Afterwards, she needed to talk to women who had made this journey. She asked them to share their stories. In the waiting room, they all felt alone. They were not at home. Now, THEATREclub and NINE CROWS are asking you to come and hear their story in NOT AT HOME; an installation, a performance, a witnessing space – a waiting room. There will be no arguments, no shouting, no stopwatch to ensure balance. This is not a sermon to the converted – it’s a calm place for the undecided, for those who have made up their minds and for those who need some space to think.
Contains nudity and adult themes.

‘Doireann is here and she wants to check if a few things are working.
She’s going to be doing a couple of songs, a couple of poems and maybe a few stories.
She’s after finding a load of tapes.
She’s going to be doing a duet with her brother.
He’s not here.
Thanks very much for being here.
If you’re concerned about anything that’s happening on the stage just remember to listen to the sound of her voice.
She’s doing a duet with her brother.
He’s not here.
He is dead.’
Doireann Coady debuts as an author with I’m Not Here, as she sets off to stage an unstageable, impossible and beautiful act.
