Following a sold-out run in Dublin’s Harbour Playhouse in 2016, 4elements are launching the national tour of Daughters of the Revolution with two performances hosted by the Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital on Sept 14th and 15th, 7pm. Tickets €15 (plus booking fee) available through Eventbrite.
Daughters of the Revolution will be in Central Arts, Waterford City, on September 16th and 17th, shows 8pm Saturday, 4pm Sunday. Tickets €12/10 available from Central Arts.
Directed by ambitious theatre-maker/writer Kate Harris, with original music by award-winning composer Doc O’Connor, and staring Clodagh Dowling, Benjamin Musgrave, and Diana O’Connor. Daughters of the Revolution is a darkly satirical theatre provocation, offering vivid insights into exactly what women have to go through to get from pregnancy to birth.
Daughters of the Revolution follows Evelyn Murphy on her journey down the rabbit hole of maternity. Evelyn’s story creates a picture of contemporary Ireland in a time of rising birth-rates, uncertain economic prospects, and a health service in crisis.
Join the conversation!
Following the performances, the audience will have the opportunity to discuss the reality of the maternity services with a panel of experts drawn from obstetrics, midwifery, and the community. Daughters of the Revolution aims to create a space for women, families, and healthcare professionals to come together and share experiences and ideas.
